Inuyashiki by Hiroya Oku will get an anime adaptation this Fall as well as a live action adaptation in 2018. It has been announced that Kanata Hongo has been cast as Naoyuki Ando in both versions. A visual for his character was released for both versions.
Naoyuki Ando Introduction
He is a childhood friend of Shishigami and the only one he could forgive. His nickname is ‘Choco’, which is another way to read the Kanji in his name. Because he has such a kind nature, he was often bullied by classmates and started to detach himself from society. But when Shishigami goes berserk with his new body, he becomes the partner of Inuyashiki to stop his friend.
Comment from Kanata Hongo
I am a fan of Inuyashiki and an even bigger fan of Hiroya Oku, so I am looking forward to the anime adaptation. There is a scene in this series where Ando is talking about GANTZ, so it is really strange for me to be playing him in this movie. But please look forward to it!
