Narimiya Hiroki to leave "Aibou" after the end of Season 13
Narimiya Hiroki will be leaving the cast of the "Aibou" series after his last appearance in Season 13 which will begin its run from March as announced by TV Asahi on 3 Feb. Narimiya joined the series' Season 11 in October 2012 as Kai Toru, the third generation partner of the lead played by Mizutani Yutaka after the first and second partners played by Terawaki Yasufumi and Oikawa Mitsuhiro left the series. In actual fact, the initial agreement was that Narimiya would stay with the series for two years only but he was persuaded by the production crew to stay on for another year. However, it is not known yet what kind of reason will be given for Narimiya's departure from the series as Terawaki's character was described as having quit the police force while Oikawa's character was said to be transferred to another department.
