|This article is about a/an actress in Chouriki Sentai Ohranger.|
At the time of Ohranger, Sato was a rising star, being a former gravure star and having a show on the Japanese version of MTV. Her growing popularity thanks to being seen in Sentai contrasted with her growing aggravated on her association with the genre and denouncing being on a kids show. She further caused problems with unreasonable demands with Toei, including desiring more air time in Chouriki Sentai Ohranger: Ole vs. Kakuranger; Toei acquiesced by giving her a special introduction in the special but she still denounced them. Her demands even became to the point that even Hiroshi Miyauchi, a longtime Sentai veteran, denounced her diva-like attitude. After Ohranger ended, Sato denounced her former job and stated she would not appear in another kid's show. This would end up being a bad choice due to being dropped from MTV at about the same time.
She would later appear in cameos in other tokusatsu and live-action programs, including appearing in two episodes of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger tied to Ohranger. The Gokaiger episodes included "Crash!! Secret Operations", "One Power" and archive footage in "The Confused Ninja".
