# A thrilling mystery drama starring Katori and Yamashita together for the first time!
Hiratsuka Heihachi (Katori) is an eccentric detective at the First Investigation Division of the Metropolitan Police Department who is working as a one-man team. He is hated by everyone around him and they are not exactly hiding their aversion, but he does a great job solving one case after another. Inside the First Division rumor has it that Heihachi is connections to the underworld. Coincidentally this division also happens to have a new rookie named Saionji Kosuke (Yamashita) and so he’s being given the task to act as Heihachi’s new partner in order to observe him around the clock.
The characters of this new duo couldn’t be any different. Heihachi is a petty and meticulous man, but as soon as he opens his mouth he’s suddenly all gentlemanly. Kosuke, on the other hand, is still a pure greenhorn with strong morals who is coming from a wealthy family.
During the announcement, the Katori and Yamashita were described of portraying a unique convexo-concave partnership in the drama. Both are very ambitious about this drama and even formed a temporary unit to provide the drama’s theme song. ‘MONSTERS’ is produced, directed, and written by the same people who created the hit-drama ‘MR. BRAIN’ in 2009 and what else could they aim for than a similar success?
