Apr.28, 2022




The new TV series Ultraman Decker will begin broadcasting on the TV Tokyo Network in Japan from July 9th 2022! Every Thursday at 5pm JST, we will be introducing you to the latest news, and the main cast members starring alongside Kanata Asumi, the protagonist played by Hiroki Matsumoto.


Up-and-coming actor Nobunaga Daichi will play the role of Soma Ryumon, Kanata’s friendly rival and a member of the anti-Sphere unit, the newly reformed expert team GUTS-Select. He made his acting debut at 14 in an NHK Taiga Drama and has gone on to star mainly in TV dramas, as well as movies and commercials. Please look forward to seeing him join the show as Soma Ryumon.


■Soma Ryumon (20)

Soma is the pilot of the GUTS Falcon, a GUTS-Select combat vehicle that was repurposed from a remote-controlled unmanned vehicle to a manually piloted one.

Always calm and collected, his cool personality doesn’t often let him show his emotions.

After being saved by a TPU member as a boy when he was caught in a monster attack, he began training himself and found his calling in GUTS-Select, joining against his father’s wishes. He swore to become the best to prove to his father that he made the right choice.

He always assesses the situation with a critical eye, leading the captain to call him an “observant genius.”
