<Comments from the Actor＞
I’m Runa Toyoda, playing Yuna Shizuma. Yuna is a bright and ingenious girl, and yet she has a strong sense of conviction within her. She and I are similar in some ways, and I hope to discover more of the qualities that we share as her character develops. This series is a story filled with hope, and with quirky characters that are bound to make its viewers smile. That is the kind of series that you can look forward to. I will give it my all to deliver courage and happiness to all generations, from children to grandparents, as Yuna Shizuma. I hope you are all really excited for Ultraman Trigger, and thank you for your support!
