The drama is tentatively titled Tokyo DOGS~ Saiaku de Saikou no Partner~. (The Worst and Best of Partners). Oguri Shun's first appearance in a Getsu 9 drama (Fuji TV, Mondays at 9) sees him playing the role of an elite detective of NY police. Mizushima Hiro is an officer from the Special Investigations Unit of Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department. Yoshitaka Yuriko is a mysterious woman who holds the key to their case. The new Getsu 9 will be a perfect balance of serious moments and comedy.
When he was in elementary school, Takakura Sou (Oguri Shun, unsure of name reading) saw his father killed right in front of his eyes. Since then, he has been haunted by his past and moved to NY as a detective with the determination of one day arresting his father's murderer. He is well-skilled in military training but shows lack of flexibility. When it comes to work, he is calm and disciplined. By nature, he is a kind and gentlemanly character.
On the other hand, Kudo Maruo (Mizushima Hiro, ditto with name reading) rose from delinquency and is an expert in all forms of martial art such as karate, judo and taekwondo. Hotblooded and passionate, his interest is goukon (group dates). Their characters, investigations methods and taste in women are completely different. How this unlikely pair met, was through a case one day...
The stage is NY. Takakura found himself caught up in a big narcotic syndicate while pursuing his father's killer. The elite detective is put in charge of the operation, with close to 100 people under his command. Kudo Maruo is one of those who came to assist from Japan. At the place where the incident took place, a single woman, Matsunaga Yuki (Yoshitaka Yuriko) who knows the root of the case is left behind... However, due to extreme shock, she has lost her memory. Takakura continues his investigation in Japan, working together with Kudo and with Yuki close by. As her memory returns, the painful past returns and strains the relationship among the three of them. On the one hand, there is the 'detective side' that must continue investigating the case. On the other hand, there are the different viewpoints and also emotions coming into play...
With such wonderful co-stars, I'm feeling excited before we have even started. With these members, sometimes understanding each other, something clashing, I want to make an interesting work for everyone.
This is my first appearance in a Getsu 9 and I look forward to showing a different side of myself again. Together with the effort of the staff and cast, I want to create a police drama never seen before.

a fan... thanks luraaa (><)
shunluv, this is definitely something to look forward to next season. the only thing that might put a damper in it is what i've been grumbling to grumpy. amnesia! flashbacks, tortured memories, and then she's gonna turn out to be shun's father's killer's daughter.
.. but i guess i'd still watch it even if it turns out that way :D
