His jean-wearing character Kohei Kuryu, an unorthodox prosecutor has aged as well. Kimura said that he didn't change the way he's portraying the character but said "with more experience under his belt, I felt that the character shouldn't be rough-edged as he used to be".
It may seem like he's always taking the long route, but Kuryu's prosecution style is as relentless as ever. "He's not really efficient. But I'm thinking that this attitude of ignoring your ego and desires is alright, especially for someone who decides whether a person should go to trial or not.".
When asked about what the viewers should look out for, he said: "Well, there's not a single person here who has special abilities in this one, but I hope people will understand the meaning of the title HERO".
Q. The World Cup still isn't over. Do you like soccer?
A. Cho suki desu. I did some martial arts when I was little, but if I had the chance to choose what to do, I would have wanted to play soccer. I'm from the Captain Tsubasa generation, so I wore jerseys in the same manner, and albeit unnecessary, I'd shout 'Deyaaaa!' whenever I would kick the ball.
Q. Kimura-san, who is your [HERO]? (Chiba prefecture, 14-y/o Moe-chan)
A. Guys like Argentina's Messi and Brazil's Neymar. They may be a whole lot younger than me but I think they're unconditionally cool. That's true with all sports athletes in any field. I can't choose them all."
Q. How do you memorize long lines? (Ibaraki prefecture, 53-y/o Hiromi Usami-san)
A. Determination. I'd actually like to know if there's a trick to it. Maji de.
It's pretty well-known that Kimura likes soccer
Yaki-butas would like to say a word ↓
Well, Messi is the HERO of the chibi world after all
Messi: "Who tf are you?"
I wonder what Messi would do once he retires
A 40-y/o man shouldn't be using the word "Cho suki" (super love)... Things like this are what make him pathetic...
Messi's a short-legged squirt so he probably felt a sort of kinship with him
KimuTaku should be in the soccer shows, not Katori
And when asked who his favorite baseball player is, I think he'll say Matsui or Ichiro w
Hey, there are girls these days who are saying they like Müller recently.
You're losing to them, KimuTaku.
He's the role model of all gloryhunters
Takuya Kimura: "I don't get what's so fun about baseball."
Beat Takeshi: "After seeing the World Cup, you'd suddenly think 'Da heck is this' when you watch baseball."
Teppei Koike: "I don't watch something like baseball."
Joichiro Tatsuyoshi: "Baseball is too boring. Never have I thought that it was interesting."
Masami Nagasawa: "Baseball has this minor image that it's only watched by old men."
Ai Takahashi: "My image is baseball = grandpas."
Hikaru Kawamura: "Baseball players are no good. They're all so flabby and disgusting..."
Othello Matsushima: "It's hard to watch, the ball is too small. It's vague, strikes are too vague since it all depends on the umpire's decision."
Shintaro Ishihara: "I hate baseball. It's no fun at all."
Soichiro Tahara: "Baseball isn't sports. The pitcher's the only one moving."
Go Morita: "But baseball's boring."
Eita: (Do you watch baseball?) "I don't watch baseball. Not interested."
Were characters wearing jerseys in a peculiar way in Captain Tsubasa? The only one that's left an impression was Hyuga's folded sleeves.
Kimura's such a gloryhunting fanboy. The sweet bandwagon fangirls out there in the streets can't even compare.
> didn't change the way he's portraying the character
Eh!? He can actually change it-----!??
Shallow, as usual w
Celebs who like soccer

- NEWS Tegoshi
- Kanjani Murakami
- Nana Katase
- AKB Sashihara

- Ruriko Kojima
Yaki-butas, you jelly? wwwwwwww
If I recall, Kuryu of HERO also likes soccer. I remember the finale where Takako Matsu mentioned all the names of the Cameroon team when Kuryu asked her.
And I bet you guys would bash him if he says James Rodriguez.
Feels like he's being forced to say these things
視聴率 ３０%超えを 狙っているんだろうが
Well, I think they're aiming for 30% if things go well, but 22% if it does well, 13% if it doesn't. Might only be this much.
HERO without Takako Matsu, Nene Ohtsuka, Hiroshi Abe, and Masanobu Katsumura is not HERO
They're so desperate here, leeching onto HERO which got the highest ratings after Ando Lloyd which got the lowest ratings.
They can't put Abe-chan in here anymore since he's gotten so big. He's now on a higher standing than KimuTako.
Abe himself has finally swept away the image of HERO so he just doesn't want to go back.
He used to be an actor with zero leading roles in the past.

He's been surpassed by Hiroshi Abe and Masato Sakai, his former supporting actors, but will he be able to defeat them again?
He used talk about Batistuta a lot in the past, maybe he just likes Argentina
There's a high rate of ikemens who like soccer
But when you're asked who your hero is, most people will answer the hero you had when you were a kid, right?
What a gloryhunter LOL
James Rodriguez, Suarez, Neymar. A hardcore fan like me has my sights on these guys.
He was just claiming that he liked One Piece recently. Then he's saying that he likes soccer while the World Cup is ongoing. And he's got this arrogant attitude, like he's saying that Japanese players aren't in his sights. What the heck is this guy.
One Piece, Messi... Looks like he's living his life full of lies by having to say he likes these things that he actually doesn't. I wonder how the real KimuTaku is.
I guess Kimura and Messi are of the same height when they stand side by side
It's like how the baldies idolize Robben, the hero of baldies. Squirts idolize Messi, the hero of squirts.
I get that he's excited about soccer, but this question was asked for a drama interview so he should've answered actors or directors whom he respects.
He's leeching onto something that's popular wwwwww
I personally would've become a fan of his if he said his hero was"Shevchenko"
