Q. How did you feel when you first heard of this drama plan, and what did you think on reading the script?
I think this is such a large scale project that normally it would be difficult to broadcast on golden time TV, so I am grateful to Kansai TV for dramatizing it. Ever since I first heard of the outline of this plan, I wanted to be a part of it, but I thought that it was too difficult to realize and had almost given up. So I am really thankful to all involved that we have come this far.
Q. What do you think of your character, Inami?
I think he's a man with a deep bitterness inside him.
Q. There are a lot of aggressive action scenes in this drama- how did the filming go?
I can definitely say I'm giving my best performance possible.
Q. How is working with Hidetoshi Nishijima?
We had talked about making a cool action drama together someday, so I'm very happy it has come true.
Q. A message for the audience
This story is fantastic because it has an epic theme, and challenges the boundaries of today's TV dramas. I'm confident it will be an exciting, satisfying drama for everyone. I'm sure you will enjoy it!

Q. How did you feel when you first heard of this drama plan, and what did you think on reading the script?
When I first heard of this plan, I thought it would be impossible to actually dramatize it. So it was only at the first meeting with the cast and staff that I thought "Oh, we're really filming this drama!" For Shun Oguri and Kazuki Kaneshiro it has long been in planning. Their passion has helped them overcome difficulties in realizing this drama.
Q. What do you think of your character, Tamaru?
He has conflicting feelings which he hides from those around him, and I think there is a danger that his convictions will clash with his duty someday. Inami and Tamaru are like two sides of a coin- they take totally opposite approaches but they are both feeling inner anguish and pain.
Q. There are a lot of aggressive action scenes in this drama- how did the filming go?
This time I'm strongly motivated to show a different type of action entertainment from what I've previously done in dramas and movies. But because this drama demands such high standards, it takes longer than usual for an OK take, and every day I'm losing my confidence.(laughs) And Shun Oguri's action moves are fantastic. We are really pushing ourselves so I think you'll find the action in this drama a big highlight, too.
Q. How is working with Shun Oguri?
Years ago he said he'd like to do an action drama with me, and of course I agreed, so I'm very glad it has at last come true. He is very motivated as the leader of the cast, and has a great personality, which is why so many people want to work with him.
Q. A message for the audience
The more grueling the filming gets, the better the drama will be, and the staff and cast are committed to give their best in the filming. I think the audience will be able to connect with the special investigation team as they struggle to accomplish all kinds of seemingly impossible tasks. I hope you enjoy it!
