Gouriki Ayame & Watabe Atsuro team up in TV Asahi Spring 2015 drama "Tenshi to Akuma - Mikaiketsu Jiken Tokumei Koshoka -"
Gouriki Ayame and Watabe Atsuro will be teaming up in the TV Asahi Spring 2015 drama "Tenshi to Akuma - Mikaiketsu Jiken Tokumei Koshoka -"which will begin its run from April in the Fridays 11.15pm timeslot. Gouriki plays the role of a newbie police officer Maita Hikari who trusts others wholeheartedly, keeps making mistakes at work and ends up being sent to work in an insignificant position while Watabe plays Chajima Ryunosuke who is a lawyer with no morals and doesn't believe in people. The two of them who are 24 years apart in age, form an unlikely alliance to crack unresolved cases in the Mikaiketsu Jiken Tokumei Koshoka by using plea deals to get suspects and the accused to testify against the true culprits responsible for committing the crimes. Plea deals are not used in Japan yet but this topic is expected to be debated in the parliament this year.
Gouriki and Watabe last appeared together in the TBS 2013 drama "Kurokochi" but this will be the first time that they will be working closely together.
