Meet the cast of the thrilling zombie apocalypse movie “Love You as the World Ends”

Kamen Rider stars Takeuchi Ryoma and Takahashi Fumiya are Hibiki and Yamato in the dystopian zombie film Love You as the World Ends. Based on the hit  horror-television series co-produced by Nippon TV and Hulu Japan, Love You As The World Ends ties in all the intertwining stories of a group of survivors trying to stay alive during a zombie outbreak.


Takeuchi Ryoma plays the lead role as Hibiki, a mechanic before the world was plunged into chaos. Hibiki was about to propose to his partner, Kurumi, when the deadly Golem outbreak began. Fighting for survival, Kurumi tragically succumbs to the Golem virus, but miraculously gives birth to their child, Mirai. Mirai’s unusual childbirth piques the interest of researchers who are looking for the cure to the Golem virus, and kidnaps, hoping to further their cause. Hibiki must now climb up Utopia, a refuge from the Golems, to get to the researchers and save his child.

Most notable for playing main character Shinnosuke Tomari of the Kamen Rider series, Kamen Rider Drive, Takeuchi Ryoma has been Hibiki for the Love You as the World Ends series for 4 seasons. He’s also cast as Miyabe Arata in Roppongi Class, a remake of the hit K-drama series Itaewon Class.

Takahashi Fumiya plays the second protagonist, Yamato, who came across Hibiki by chance when his car broke down while on a date with the girl he wants to be in a relationship with, Aoi. The pair will meet again as fate brings them together on a quest to find and rescue their loved ones. Aoi is up in the top level of Utopia, where the researchers are secluded, her fate unknown to Yamato. As they face unknown dangers higher up in Utopia, Yamato and Hibiki form a tenuous alliance to increase their chances of successfully getting to the top.

In 2019, Takahashi Fumiya was the first Kamen Rider actor to be cast who was born in the 21st century, playing the protagonist role in Kamen Rider Zero-One. Consistently getting roles in TV drama series, he bagged the lead role for the prime time drama for the first time as Kitada Gaku in Fermat no Ryōri.

Watch them take the ultimate journey as Love You As The World Ends opens in PH cinemas on June 12, an Encore Films film distributed by Warner Bros.
