After playing a sadistic boss in “Clover”, Okura’s new role will be “M”.
It was announced that Kanjani8‘s Okura Tadayoshi will star in “Do S Deka” (Do S keiji/super sadist detective) that will air this April. “Do S Deka” is based from Nanao Yoshi‘s novel that feature a super-S woman detective and a good-natured policeman who became her partner.
In the drama, Tabe Mikako will play the role of Kuroi Maya, a super S detective known for her love to look at people’s troubled faces. While Okura will play the role of Daikanyama Shuusuke, a soft-hearted yet a scatterbrain policeman who works in a police box. Due to a certain incident, Shuusuke will chance to meet Maya, and will find himself unfortunately partnered with her to solve cases.
Okura and Tabe have worked before in “Yasuko to Kenji” and “GM: General Medicine”. Okura is thrilled to work with Tabe again and says that no matter how much she will attack him, more than half the members of Kanjani8 are Do-S so he’s used to being flung around.
“Do S Deka” will air this April on NTV.
