■Ichika Kirino (20)

The Ground Assault Operative of GUTS-Select

Bright and optimistic, she is hot-blooded with a strong sense of duty and responsibility. She is athletic and though small in stature she can dodge and maneuver quickly.

She hopes to bring back peace to Earth so that people can continue to follow their dreams without being intruded, and save her friends who are lost in the attack of Sphere.

She tends to overthink things leading the captain to call her a “headstrong genius.”


■Cast: Yuka Murayama


Hello everyone!

I’m Yuka Murayama, and I will be playing Ultraman Decker’s heroine Ichika Kirino.

Ichika is headstrong, a passionate girl who can fearlessly stand up to anything. Although sometimes she can be an airhead…

She cares deeply for her friends, and I think seeing her and the group find their way will bring smiles and courage to you all!!

The wonderful team and I are pooling all our efforts for filming!!

There’s not long to wait until the show stars! Look forward to it!

“If I never quit, I can!!!”
