He is 32 but he doesn't look to be older than 25. He is a Japanese actor whom I truly picture as a real life Hibari Kyoya. Seriously. He might have more than one cold expression on his face but, if you had watched/will watch Saigo no Keikan (The Last Policeman), you will see my point. He doesn't smile, not even a little bit, throughout the whole drama.
The National Police Safety Rescue, or NPS is the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department’s special assault team which possesses both the mobility of the Special Unit (SAT) as well as the investigative skills of the Special Investigations Team (SIT), and is tasked with bringing criminals into custody alive. This small elite team is a new approach to fighting against heinous crimes. Kamikura Ichigo (Mukai Osamu) retired from the life of a professional boxer and became a police officer after that. In his second year working as a uniformed police officer, an incident leads to him being scouted by the NPS. Armed with excellent reflexes, explosive power and punches honed through boxing, Kamikura is a close combat specialist who is good at getting control over his opponents using barefists. On the other hand, Soga Iori (Ayano Go) is a member of the SAT. Described as superhuman, he prides himself in his sharpshooting and is the SAT’s best sniper. Soga was once assigned to a police precinct because he had aspirations to become a detective. Before long, he arrested three robbers and attracted attention as one of the promising newcomers. He is cool and collected, has great concentration, endurance, perception as well as combat ability; the embodiment of the SAT’s ideal male.
That's what Google says. However, from my point of view, it's a good emotional drama. Why? Because it shows two world, two hearts. On one side, there is Ichigo, whose hands aren't made for fighting, but for protecting people. At first I thought that sounded like bullshit but you can clearly see how positive and naive can this character be. Truthfully, I did start to watch this for Osamu Mukai but Ayano Go took the light; for me, at least. In the moment I saw him play the sorrowful Soga, I immediately started to imagine Hibari, lol. He just gives me that feeling. He seems cold and a little bit ignorant towards emotions in general, but he isn't. There is Ichigo, thinking that criminals shouldn't be killed. They should live so that the victims could have someone to blame, someone who will pay for what he has done. Soga's thoughts are the exact opposite. The criminals have to be killed once they reach a level of madness. If they live, they will only go back to their original intentions; always.
Therefore, I really recommend this drama. It's awesome and it has only 10 episodes, sadly. Besides Saigo no Keikan, there is one drama that I enjoy a lot: Saiko no Raikon (The Great Divorce). It's funny, it talks about divorce and the idea of marriage. IT talks about relationships and the hardships and changing you have to get through in marriage. Besides, it has
Maki Yoko (whom I sincerely love. She's really pretty and classy and feminine. Watch her in Osozaki no Himawari with Toma Ikuta),
Ono Machiko (who plays very well and is really pretty too. Watch her in Summer Rescue)
and Nagayama Eita (Whom I first saw in Sunao ni Narenakute, with Jaejoong. Watch him with MatsuJun in Lucky Seven. That's a great drama, as well)
This drama is epic:
These two dramas are the only ones I could watch so far. I have classes and don't have so much time for myself anymore. But, I truly recommend them.
And to reach my point. Ayano Go doesn't really play characters who are very crazy or really weird (like Kenichi Matsuyama for example) but the roles definitely fit him and make him super supper awesome. No, seriously. Sometimes that poker face really helps the mood and makes his character funny. He's growing on me quickly. Osamu-san's position is in danger lol
