Inamori Izumi will be playing the role of Kanno Rika who is the section chief of the team which Yugami and Hanyu are in and has managed to become successful in her career despite being a woman as compared to Yugami who entered the police force at the same time as her. Kanno gets irritated at Yugami who keeps doing things his way but will always protect her subordinates from her superiors when the need arises. Inamori commented that this is the first time she is playing a police detective and has to talk like a man so she finds it very interesting and meaningful to take on this challenge. She also joked that she is looking forward to kicking Asano from behind with her high heels as Kanno always does this when Yugami gets on her nerves.
Other co-stars also include Nishina Takashi who plays Tataki Ageo, the oldest member in the team and has been a sergeant for years and Hashimoto Atsushi who plays Machio Mamoru, another member in the team.
