Hirokazu Ukita is the most emotional of the Kira investigation team that is lead by L. When Misa Amane has Sakura TV broadcast a message from her as Kira, Ukita rushes to the station to stop the broadcast, without any prompting by the rest of the team. Since Misa has the Shinigami Eyes, she kills him as soon as he approaches the door and is about to shoot. He is voiced by Hidenobu Kiuchi in the Japanese anime and Jeremy From in the English dub. In the film, he is portrayed by Ikuji Nakamura, and appears notably older. Ukita does not die in the film.
