There’s another drama that’s coming out in Spring that I have my eyes on, it’s called MOZU. A couple of years ago TBS(Tokyo Broadcasting System Inc.) and WOWOW teamed up to make a drama called Double Face and it was actually a pretty well-acclaimed. The stations are teaming up again to make a new drama, MOZU, based off the novels of the same author that wrote the original work for Double Face: Go Osaka. The director(Eichiro Hasumi) and staff are also going to be the same as they were for Double Face. Read on for more details.
I think that Double Face was a big success because of its cast. I haven’t watched it personally(hey, maybe I actually will watch it now?) but after looking at some descriptions of it and seeing the cast members it gave me a pretty strong impression. MOZU isn’t going to fail in this department either, it’ll be featuring Hidetoshi Nishijima, Teruyuki Kagawa(who you might remember from Hanzawa Naoki), Yoko Maki, Kasumi Arimura, Sosuke Ikematsu, Yuroiko Ishida, Atsushi Ito, Fumiyo Kohinata and Hiroki Hasegawa among others. There aren’t many details about the storyline currently but it’s going to be a police drama, focused on two police security team members and their investigation of a contract killer named “MOZU”. MOZU will be split into 2 separate seasons that are each based off one novel. The first season will air in April of this year and the second season should be airing in Summer.
