So close and yet so far away… An inconspicuous body guard Kohei Namiki (Hidetoshi Nishijima) is assigned to be a body guard to a mega Korean super star, Han Yuna (Kim Tehi). Kohei is less than ordinary, a single man almost 40 in age working part time at a security company. Despite his kind and attractive looks, he is surrounded by people who boss him around with unreasonable demands. He keeps a dream to himself, a desire to someday become an astronomer and find his very own star. He justifies not being able to fulfill this dream to lack of funds and issues with his family. Han Yuna, on the other hand, while having a perfect face and body, loves to eat junk food. She also has a kind heart for helping others in need. While every aspect of her life may seem like a girl's dream come true, she feels a certain solitude being in the entertainment industry. As Kohei and Han Yuna come closer and closer to each other, they become an inseparable couple, discovering true love. Where will the couple end up after the contracted 99 days? A heart-warming love comedy that will make you realize once again how precious love can be.

It’s a fact. There are hopeless human beings who exist in society and while they may be referred to as being “OUTcasts” from the general public’s perspective, they remain true to themselves, in honesty, more so than the general public. In fact, this may be exactly why they have become these “OUTcasts”. After all, many legendary scholars or artists seemed to have lost their common sense or stood out from society in general. There is only a fine line between those on the outside and those on the inside. Hosts Matsuko Deluxe and Hiroyuki Yabe will guide you through this cheerful talk variety show, rooting for the underdogs!

7 detectives, each with their own unique style in problem solving work at the same detective agency. Each detective is in charge of their own case file until one day, the cases somehow seem to tangle up together into one big mystery. Inevitably, the detectives are without choice but to team up together in tackling the intriguing, but knotty mystery. Despite differing opinions and amidst complications, the detectives work together to unravel the truth behind the suspect's agenda. Taking the lead role as the freshman detective is Jun Matsumoto from the national idol group "Arashi". He plays detective Shuntaro Tokita, who has the tendency of sticking his head in things too far out of sympathy or excessive emotions towards his clients or research objects. This trait leads him to take unnecessary steps, ones that often times lead him to trouble. Contrary to Shuntaro, Teru Nitta (Eita) is a well composed detective working for the same agency. He eyes Shuntaro with a cold stare and ordinarily conflicts with his opinions. Watching over Shuntaro and Teru like a big brother is Jyunpei Asahi (Yoh Ohizumi), a senior detective who goes in between the two and tries to settle their disputes but rather ends up complicating the situation instead. Filled with "action", "comedy", and "positive thinking", the action packed entertainment show is sure to appeal to the entire family from children to adults. The team of 7 detectives with differing opinions, bold character, laughs, thrilling moments and high scaled action will keep you on your toes at all times. Not a moment shall be missed!

The age, family, education, residence, and even the real name of the main character of this drama are unknown. He is a young man who calls himself the Noble and whose hobby is being a detective. He does not have to work for a living, his attire is always stylish, and his manners are gentlemanly with a "ladies first" attitude. He has a strong self-awareness of his nobility, and he is not concerned with authority, being always well composed. Once he becomes aware of the case, he prevails upon the police brass and is reluctantly acknowledged by Raiu Hanagata, the detective in charge of the case, whereupon he gets involved in unraveling the incident. Just as everyone is thinking "let's see what this Noble can do," it is none other than the servants in his employ who conduct the search and investigation. He casually explains that "investigating and other such menial tasks are better left to my servants," then enjoys conversing with the women involved with the case and generally making a merry time of things. Leaving behind those astonished by the Noble's actions, the butler Yamamoto, the maid Tanaka, and the chauffeur Sato, all possessing absolute loyalty to the Noble, divide up the scene of the crime and begin the investigation by gathering evidence. This unprecedented mystery drama where "the main character doesn't investigate" is unique entertainment that you'll enjoy every second of.

It’s a fact. There are hopeless human beings who exist in society and while they may be referred to as being “OUTcasts” from the general public’s perspective, they remain true to themselves, in honesty, more so than the general public. In fact, this may be exactly why they have become these “OUTcasts”. After all, many legendary scholars or artists seemed to have lost their common sense or stood out from society in general. There is only a fine line between those on the outside and those on the inside. Hosts Matsuko Deluxe and Hiroyuki Yabe will guide you through this cheerful talk variety show, rooting for the underdogs!

7 detectives, each with their own unique style in problem solving work at the same detective agency. Each detective is in charge of their own case file until one day, the cases somehow seem to tangle up together into one big mystery. Inevitably, the detectives are without choice but to team up together in tackling the intriguing, but knotty mystery. Despite differing opinions and amidst complications, the detectives work together to unravel the truth behind the suspect's agenda. Taking the lead role as the freshman detective is Jun Matsumoto from the national idol group "Arashi". He plays detective Shuntaro Tokita, who has the tendency of sticking his head in things too far out of sympathy or excessive emotions towards his clients or research objects. This trait leads him to take unnecessary steps, ones that often times lead him to trouble. Contrary to Shuntaro, Teru Nitta (Eita) is a well composed detective working for the same agency. He eyes Shuntaro with a cold stare and ordinarily conflicts with his opinions. Watching over Shuntaro and Teru like a big brother is Jyunpei Asahi (Yoh Ohizumi), a senior detective who goes in between the two and tries to settle their disputes but rather ends up complicating the situation instead. Filled with "action", "comedy", and "positive thinking", the action packed entertainment show is sure to appeal to the entire family from children to adults. The team of 7 detectives with differing opinions, bold character, laughs, thrilling moments and high scaled action will keep you on your toes at all times. Not a moment shall be missed!

The main character Shinichiro Kosaka is a major cases detective who is so good that he's said to "surely be the next captain of the major cases unit." Kosaka is aiming for the position of captain of the major cases unit for his father Atsushi, a detective who aimed for the position himself but failed, for his wife Misa, as well as for himself. However, one day Kosaka makes a mistake during an investigation and the current captain Onoda, who should have held him in high regard for his previous record, gives testimony that leads to Kosaka's demotion to precinct duty. In that precinct off the track toward success, he finds coworkers who take on even the small cases diligently with their own sense of justice. Seeing their efforts, Kosaka finds himself fretting over the duty of a detective and the true meaning of justice, and finding belief in his own "justice" begins to confront "evil."

7 detectives, each with their own unique style in problem solving work at the same detective agency. Each detective is in charge of their own case file until one day, the cases somehow seem to tangle up together into one big mystery. Inevitably, the detectives are without choice but to team up together in tackling the intriguing, but knotty mystery. Despite differing opinions and amidst complications, the detectives work together to unravel the truth behind the suspect's agenda. Taking the lead role as the freshman detective is Jun Matsumoto from the national idol group "Arashi". He plays detective Shuntaro Tokita, who has the tendency of sticking his head in things too far out of sympathy or excessive emotions towards his clients or research objects. This trait leads him to take unnecessary steps, ones that often times lead him to trouble. Contrary to Shuntaro, Teru Nitta (Eita) is a well composed detective working for the same agency. He eyes Shuntaro with a cold stare and ordinarily conflicts with his opinions. Watching over Shuntaro and Teru like a big brother is Jyunpei Asahi (Yoh Ohizumi), a senior detective who goes in between the two and tries to settle their disputes but rather ends up complicating the situation instead. Filled with "action", "comedy", and "positive thinking", the action packed entertainment show is sure to appeal to the entire family from children to adults. The team of 7 detectives with differing opinions, bold character, laughs, thrilling moments and high scaled action will keep you on your toes at all times. Not a moment shall be missed!

7 detectives, each with their own unique style in problem solving work at the same detective agency. Each detective is in charge of their own case file until one day, the cases somehow seem to tangle up together into one big mystery. Inevitably, the detectives are without choice but to team up together in tackling the intriguing, but knotty mystery. Despite differing opinions and amidst complications, the detectives work together to unravel the truth behind the suspect's agenda. Taking the lead role as the freshman detective is Jun Matsumoto from the national idol group "Arashi". He plays detective Shuntaro Tokita, who has the tendency of sticking his head in things too far out of sympathy or excessive emotions towards his clients or research objects. This trait leads him to take unnecessary steps, ones that often times lead him to trouble. Contrary to Shuntaro, Teru Nitta (Eita) is a well composed detective working for the same agency. He eyes Shuntaro with a cold stare and ordinarily conflicts with his opinions. Watching over Shuntaro and Teru like a big brother is Jyunpei Asahi (Yoh Ohizumi), a senior detective who goes in between the two and tries to settle their disputes but rather ends up complicating the situation instead. Filled with "action", "comedy", and "positive thinking", the action packed entertainment show is sure to appeal to the entire family from children to adults. The team of 7 detectives with differing opinions, bold character, laughs, thrilling moments and high scaled action will keep you on your toes at all times. Not a moment shall be missed!

Utada Hikaru Special Selection Part.1

Her debut single “Automatic/time will tell” released on December 9, 1998 sold over two million copies, and at the young age of 15, she made her name as one of Japan’s top artists. Just a few months later, she released her first album “First Love,” which set the record in CD sales in Japan. This record still remains unbroken. All of her albums that followed have topped the charts. In 2007, her single “Flavor Of Life” set the world record in number of downloads. In 2010, she took a break from her music activities to focus on her life as a person.

It’s a fact. There are hopeless human beings who exist in society and while they may be referred to as being “OUTcasts” from the general public’s perspective, they remain true to themselves, in honesty, more so than the general public. In fact, this may be exactly why they have become these “OUTcasts”. After all, many legendary scholars or artists seemed to have lost their common sense or stood out from society in general. There is only a fine line between those on the outside and those on the inside.

7 detectives, each with their own unique style in problem solving work at the same detective agency. Each detective is in charge of their own case file until one day, the cases somehow seem to tangle up together into one big mystery. Inevitably, the detectives are without choice but to team up together in tackling the intriguing, but knotty mystery. Despite differing opinions and amidst complications, the detectives work together to unravel the truth behind the suspect's agenda. Taking the lead role as the freshman detective is Jun Matsumoto from the national idol group "Arashi". He plays detective Shuntaro Tokita, who has the tendency of sticking his head in things too far out of sympathy or excessive emotions towards his clients or research objects. This trait leads him to take unnecessary steps, ones that often times lead him to trouble. Contrary to Shuntaro, Teru Nitta (Eita) is a well composed detective working for the same agency. He eyes Shuntaro with a cold stare and ordinarily conflicts with his opinions. Watching over Shuntaro and Teru like a big brother is Jyunpei Asahi (Yoh Ohizumi), a senior detective who goes in between the two and tries to settle their disputes but rather ends up complicating the situation instead. Filled with "action", "comedy", and "positive thinking", the action packed entertainment show is sure to appeal to the entire family from children to adults. The team of 7 detectives with differing opinions, bold character, laughs, thrilling moments and high scaled action will keep you on your toes at all times. Not a moment shall be missed!

Lucky Seven Ep9

7 detectives, each with their own unique style in problem solving work at the same detective agency. Each detective is in charge of their own case file until one day, the cases somehow seem to tangle up together into one big mystery. Inevitably, the detectives are without choice but to team up together in tackling the intriguing, but knotty mystery. Despite differing opinions and amidst complications, the detectives work together to unravel the truth behind the suspect's agenda. Taking the lead role as the freshman detective is Jun Matsumoto from the national idol group "Arashi". He plays detective Shuntaro Tokita, who has the tendency of sticking his head in things too far out of sympathy or excessive emotions towards his clients or research objects. This trait leads him to take unnecessary steps, ones that often times lead him to trouble. Contrary to Shuntaro, Teru Nitta (Eita) is a well composed detective working for the same agency. He eyes Shuntaro with a cold stare and ordinarily conflicts with his opinions. Watching over Shuntaro and Teru like a big brother is Jyunpei Asahi (Yoh Ohizumi), a senior detective who goes in between the two and tries to settle their disputes but rather ends up complicating the situation instead. Filled with "action", "comedy", and "positive thinking", the action packed entertainment show is sure to appeal to the entire family from children to adults. The team of 7 detectives with differing opinions, bold character, laughs, thrilling moments and high scaled action will keep you on your toes at all times. Not a moment shall be missed!
