Kurata (倉田Yosuke Endo.) is the younger partner to detective
NOTE: Due to there being several differences between the manga and anime adaptation, the History section has been split into two tabs.
Endo's younger partner and subordinate, he was assisting the older detective in the serial killings and was there was when he was called of by the SSSP. Later on, he was driving Endo, presumably home, when they happened upon a traffic accident. Endo was about to go and help but Kurata held him back, the truck could explode at any minute. When Shinjiro arrived in his Ultraman Suit the pair, Kurata thought it was some form of cosplay, but was surprised at the young man's speed, strength and jumping ability. When Shinjiro saved the bus driver the two were quick to question him but the young man suddenly left. Kurata wondered aloud if that was an Ultraman only to have Endo denounce the boy as such.
Kurata later followed Endo back to the seen of a crime they had been called of, they found no clues except that the victim was a Rena fan. Outside they found themselves chasing after a little boy, only to discover what the SSSP was hiding, there were aliens on Earth.
Kurata later showed frustration with his partner for keeping him out of the loop during his investigation in the serial killings. Kurata later accompanied Endo on the way to another crime scene when they ran into Be Mular. After the alien left Kurata asked his partner what the alien meant only to be surprised to find the older man crying.
Kurata later went with Endo to an abandoned apartment to set a trap for the serial killer. It was here that he learned of Endo and Rena's connection in a humorous scene. While the two had expected the small four eyed alien, instead they were greeted by Alien Bris who was immune to their pistols. The two were saved by an unseen assistant who force the alien out of the apartment and began to fight him.
Yosuke Endo and his partner Kurata were police officers investigating a strange string of murders where the victims ended up being splattered onto the walls, baffling them. Their investigation was cut off by Dan Moroboshi and his team, and he officers left after Endo noticed the SSSP logo on one of their devices. While driving down the highway, Endo was infuriated that he job had been taken from him while wondering why the SSSP had come back. Endo and Kurata later went to investigate another murder elsewhere, and realized that they were connected to Rena Sayama. Looking around, they saw a suspect peeping at them, and chased him. Eventually, their suspect was run over by a car and when Endo went to investigate, he found out that he was an alien, giving him an answer to why the SSSP had returned. Unknown to the two cops, Bemular was watching them from above.
The cops decided to lay a trap for Igaru in an abandoned flat by badmouthing Rena, but they were unknowingly being observed by Dan Moroboshi. Unfortunately for them, Alien Bris arrived instead, and their guns were useless against the alien. They had to be rescued by Dan Moroboshi wearing the Seven suit, who engaged in a short battle with Bris. Bris was overwhelmed and had his left arm cut off by Dan, and started to plead for his life. Dan did not spare him and killed the alien without a second thought while the two cops escaped. Igaru told them that Rena was in danger, and the three left together. After the battle between Agent Adad, Bemular, Sjinjiro and Moroboshi was over, and Igaru was dead, Adad exposed the true culprits behind the recent murders, Kurata arrested the trio while Endo went over to comfort his distressed daughter.
After being shown a photo of a new Ultraman, Kurata jokes that he and Endo should set up an alien investigation department. Surprisingly, Endo says that it's not a bad idea.
- He shared the same surname to that of a Terrestrial Defense Force Space Station V3 member from Ultraseven.
