Masami Nagasawa relishes her role as detective

17 Comments

Masami Nagasawa says she is very happy to play a detective in her newest TV drama, “Toshi Densetsu no Onna," which will air on TV Asahi on Friday nights from April.

It has been three years since Nagasawa appeared in a TV drama series. “Toshi Densetsu no Onna" is a mixture of comedy and mystery. Nagasawa plays Tsukiko Otonashi, a police detective who is obsessed with urban legends and who works on unsolved cases behind the legends.

Nagasawa said her character is always on the lookout for evidence to link crimes to unexplained urban legends. She even goes so far as to investigate crimes by herself in secret.

The obligatory romance is provided by Junpei Inomata who plays a handsome forensic investigator. He falls in love with Tsukiko at first sight.

Nagasawa told reporters she has wanted to play a detective for a long time. She said that the director was very open to her ad-libbing jokes.

Typical "Charlie's Angels" pose with the pistol. Not only is it silly-looking and dangerous, it would take too long to aim if it was necessary.

I wouldn't mess with her. Is that gun loaded?

Dumbest sub plot I have ever heard and that is saying something for Japanese TV

Tsukiko Otonashi - So who killed the Ojisan? I did. Why did I do it? Because of some childhood slight. How did I do it? I poisoned his ramen. I confess, it was me!

Expect a lot of bad acting, no sex and no gun fights.

She said that the director was very open to her ad-libbing jokes.

Which consisted of her saying "Ehhh?" incredulously, having her mouth fall open and blinking rapidly.

The obligatory romance is provided by Junpei Inomata who plays a handsome forensic investigator. He falls in love with Tsukiko at first sight.

I wonder of there will be a scene in which somebody has to run through the rain at night?
