Powerhouse Cast

Played by Ryohei Suzuki, Ryo Saeba balances a cool persona with a fun-loving personality, making him a captivating lead role. Joining him on his adventures is Kaori Makimura, the heroine portrayed by Misato Morita. The film also welcomes two additional cast members Masanobu Ando as Hideyuki Makimura, Kaori’s brother and Ryo’s close friend and former partner. Despite being a retired detective, Hideyuki remains a valuable asset to Ryo.

Additionally, Fumino Kimura portrays Saeko Nogami, a detective with the Metropolitan Police Department who shares a mysterious connection with Ryo. Saeko and Hideyuki were once colleagues, and their past ties allow her to exchange information with Ryo about the underworld. Her beauty, wit, and dynamic with Ryo have made her a fan-favorite character in the original series.

Both Ando and Kimura express their dedication to doing justice to these cherished characters, while also acknowledging the pressure that comes with taking on such iconic roles. They are confident, however, that their performances will resonate with both existing fans and newcomers to the “City Hunter” universe.

“The role of Saeko was a daunting offer, and I couldn’t imagine myself playing it, However, having the support and guidance of Ryohei Suzuki, our leading man and a fan of the original work, was incredibly reassuring. I’m confident that both longtime fans and new audiences are in for a treat with this film.” – Fumino Kimura

    Oppa is Life is a fan page created in 2019 when I felt the need for another virtual space to pour out my feels, musings and fangirl experiences. It started as a Facebook fanpage but I later on decided to open other social media accounts because a single Facebook page just doesn’t feel enough.
