Ouroboros is getting more exciting with an addition of one of my favorite Japanese actress.
It was announced that actress Ueno Juri will join the cast of “Ouroboros” that stars Ikuta Toma and Oguri Shun.
“Ouroboros” is a live adaptation from the manga of the same title by Kanzaki Yuuya. It tells the story of two orphaned friends where one grows up as a police detective (Ikuta) while the other is yakuza (Oguri). Together, the two will extract revenge for their foster parent. Ueno plays the role of Hibino Mizuki, an elite police officer who graduated from Tokyo University and will be Ikuo’s (Ikuta) police buddy.
This is the first time that the Ikuta and Ueno will be working together and their characters will be having a love story; however, Ikuta regrets that it’ll be a sad one. Ikuta is also full of enthusiasm after learning the names of the amazing actors who will be working with them.
Rounding-up the cast, are: Yoshida Kotaro, Kenichi Takito, Yoshida Yō, Mitsuishi Ken, and Seino Nana.
“Ouroboros” will air on TBS every Friday at 10:00 PM (JST) starting on Jan 31st.
