TBS to show new Spring 2018 drama "SICK'S Jo no Shou ~ Naikaku Jouhou Chousashitsu Tokumu Jikou Senjuugakari Jikenbo ~"

TBS will be showing the new Spring 2018 drama "SICK'S Jo no Shou ~ Naikaku Jouhou Chousashitsu Tokumu Jikou Senjuugakari Jikenbo ~" (SICK'S ~ The Cabinet's Information Investigation Department Special Affairs Specialist Case Files ~) which will be shown exclusively via video streaming website Paravi from April 2018. The platform is a joint venture by TBS, The Nikkei, TV Tokyo, WOWOW, Dentsu and Hakuhodo DY Media Partners which was launched in July this year and charges a monthly subscription fee of 999 yen (inclusive of tax) for videos which can be streamed on TV as well.

The new drama will be directed by Tsutsumi Yukihiko who is well-known for suspense detective drama series "Keizoku" and "SPEC" which were ranked No.2 and No.1 in terms of sales on the video streaming service TBS On Demand. "SPEC" was even the No.1 most accessed content on the platform for 5 years in a row from 2012 to 2016 and is still the top title on the site as of this year. "SICK'S" is positioned as the finale to the "SPEC" saga and will be set in the Tokumu department which deals specially with SPEC holders. The two leads will be announced at a later date.

At the moment, the supporting cast line-up is announced to be as follows:

Ninomae Ito - Kuroshima Yuina (Time-related SPEC holder who is related to Ninomae Juuichi)

hmmm...Who are the two leads? For the man, looking from behind with this hairstyle I can only think of Matsuda Shota or Eita. There are no hint or guessing? No clue about the woman.

Hi Ama, the only clues given about the identities of the two leads are:
- their back shots
- the fact that the last letter in their names is A

We'll see who they are after TBS makes the official announcement. For now, it's really anybody's guess. ^__^
