17 Comments

Actresses Meisa Kuroki, 23, and Mikako Tabe, 22, will team up as detectives in the upcoming Asahi TV drama series, "Jiu Keishicho Tokushu-han Sosa-Gakari," which will air at 11:15 p.m. from June 10. The two will play female detectives, one who relies on knowledge and the other on physicality, to solve crimes. This will be Kuroki’s first appearance in an ongoing drama and her first role as a detective. She said, “I’m looking forward to the role, because my character will deal with a range of situations, from betrayal and trust, to love and diplomacy.”

“I’m going to play my character very carefully,” remarked Tabe, who will be acting alongside Kuroki for the first time, “because Kuroki and I will be playing contrasting roles.”

22 year-old detectives. Completely plausible to me. Especially two female ones in Japan, where women make up only like 3% of the recruits.

Kuroki and Tabe must make a good team. The drama story reflects contemporary events and regional issues. Tokyoite are looking forward to it with more participating roles.

So which one relies on knowledge and which one relies on physicality to solve the crimes? I guess we'll find out June 10!

Kuroki and Tabe look like they would make a great tagteam.

She said, “I’m looking forward to the role, because my character will deal with a range of situations, from betrayal and trust, to love and diplomacy.”

Her character will probably consist on look sexy with suit, and maybe glasses. There will be 3 "situations": happy face, sad face, and mysterious face.

Gee if they were born with a few different angles of the face here and there they would have ended up in that other racket as an inhumane object. Hence your local conbini or soapland. This country is seriously delusional when it comes to quality television and entertainment. This must be the reason I don't take any Japanese serious. I say they have The West Wing style drama and have teenage girls run the country. “I’m looking forward to the role, because my character will deal with a range of situations, from betrayal and trust, to love and diplomacy.” If this is the mentality of the people I am glad to have America babysit in reality.

That's some serious eye candy, from the neck up. Not the most flattering shot if you're trying to de-emphasize the area between their armpits.
