Endo Kenichi to reappear as Ebina Takashi in TV Asahi Autumn 2016 drama "Doctor X 4 ~ Gekai Daimon Michiko ~"

Endo Kenichi will be making a guest appearance in the 5th and 6th episodes of TV Asahi Autumn 2016 drama "Doctor X 4 ~ Gekai Daimon Michiko ~" which will be shown on 10th and 17th November. He will be reprising his role as Ebina Takashi who was a regular cast member from Seasons 2 and 3 and the subsequent SP. Ebina is a doctor who kowtows to the power of Hiruma Shigekatsu (Nishida Toshiyuki) and would not hesitate to throw away his pride in front of the latter to the extent that he will eat the paper which Hiruma wrote his secrets on. In this season, he takes on the post of the surgical department's director in the Kanazawa branch hospital and is summoned to come to Tokyo at Hiruma's orders.

Endo revealed that Ebina is a character which he likes a lot especially since he thinks that this is what got him a lot of offers to play miserable or pitiful characters in dramas and CMs. Despite his fierce appearance, Ebina is viewed as a typical middle-level manager where he can't fight back against his bosses and yet bullies those below them. When Season 4 began last month, there were fans who wanted to see Endo back as Ebina again thus making it possible to return as a guest star. Endo expressed his eagerness to interact with Nishida again in the drama and is excited about the ad libs which the latter might throw at his way again. Yonekura also commented that she is very excited about Endo's long-awaited return to the drama although it's a pity that he will be appearing for two episodes only.
