Previously working as a gas station attendant during high school with the aim of becoming a mechanic, Kubota auditioned for a acting role on the advice on his mother with the company Stardust  to which in won and later joined.

As an actor, Kubota is consistently the supporting roles that steals the spotlight and outshines the lead. And who only now is being recognized for his talents. His duo personality of boyish charms and bad ass masculinity, has won Masa diverse TV and film character roles from teenage hood to adult hood including a transgender teen, a submissive sidekick, an out-of-depth teacher, the nice guy that doesn’t finish last, and several antagonist roles (including his most notable role as super-psychotic yankee Kuronaga Hayato from the Gachiban film series, which has seen Kubota star in ten films to date). As well as acting, Masa also was a former member of the j-pop hip-hop group ROM-4. And in 2013 returned to the music scene as a member of the band CRUDE PLAY (consisted of Miura Shohei, Kubota Masataka, Mizuta Kouki, and Asaka Kodai) formed for the movie The Liar and His Lover | Kanojo wa Uso o Aishisugiteru (2013).

However it wasn’t till his portrayal as  Yagami Light/Kira in the live-action Death Note adapation that made Kubota a household name among international fans. Going on to win a Best Actor award that year.
