Cast: Yu Koyanagi
Nice to meet you, I’m Yu Koyanagi. I’m returning to the Ultraman universe after I played protagonist Run in Ultraman Zero THE MOVIE: Ultra Deciding Fight! The Belial Galactic Empire 12 years ago. This time I’ll be playing Yuichiro, a scientist supporting the team. I was happy to return to the set and meet some of the same crew members, and I’m moved to see them continue to watch over the series. Everyone welcomed me warmly on set and reminded me that I’m here to demonstrate my craft. I’ll devote myself to providing all my acting skills to this show.
