Kimura Subaru, playing Hiroto
I am very excited to play him! I am a big fan of this since the live-action adaption, and I paid attention to this right after the anime adaption has been announced.
It is like a dream to me to be a part of this anime!
I will do my best!

I am honored to be the part of this work because I know that this series has so many fans and experienced several adaptions to multiple forms of media.
Please look forward to IWGP and Isogai originally to the anime!
