Yuya Hirata (平田雄也 Hirata Yuya) is a Japanese actor. He is known for his role as Katsumi Minato, the human host of Ultraman Rosso in Ultraman R/B.




  • Yuya mentioned that a challenge he faced when acting as Katsumi is that he needs to imagine the monster's appearance itself.
  • Yuya's favorite Ultraman is Ultraman Taro, while his favorite monster is Pigmon. He also recalls drawing Taro in a book as a child.
    • Interestingly, Rosso's main form, Flame, is accessed with Taro's R/B Crystal.
  • Yuya revealed at the Ultraman R/B Grand Finale event that he once received a fan letter saying "I was able to find my way of life because of R/B. R/B has given me hope."[1]
