Hero Episode 1 Screen Caps

Kimura Takuya (Pride) stars as Kuryu Kohei a high school drop out that passes the law board exams and becomes a prosecutor. Matsu Takako (April Story) co-stars as Amamiya Maiko his assistant in the public prosecutor's office. The first episode begins as Kuryu is transfered from a rural district to Tokyo, his first case concerns an anime fan who is accused as a panty thief. Even though the accused is a formerly convicted of a sex crime Kuryu investigates the case throughly, too throughly for his boss and other members of his department. In the the course of his investigation, Kuryu points out to Amamiya the key to an important case the rest of the prosecutors are working on concerning a member of the Diet.

If you enjoy mysteries, I think that you'll enjoy this very entertaining show that I first watched a few years ago. A theatrical movie with the original cast was released in Japan on Saturday 9/7/07 which I did a post on a few days ago. Kimura and Matsu have a really great chemistry together as shown in this series. also in the 1997 drama Love Generation and the 1996 Long Vacation. Both also co-stared in the 2006 Hero Special.

This series was originally broadcast in the winter of 2001 and the English hard subs can be downloaded from Jem's tracker here.
