On June 14th, Fuji TV announced five more actors who will star on their upcoming omnibus drama experiment 'Higashino Keigo Mysteries'.

'Higashino Keigo Mysteries' will consist of 11 episodes, and feature 11 of Higashino Keigo's best short stories as well as 11 different actors. Higashino is most prominently known for his amazing mystery novels in which he is able to incorporate various tones from dead serious to almost comedic to just eerie. Condensed into short stories that only last for a single episode, Fuji TV is aiming to offer their viewers a fresh viewing experience and a Higashino story at its best.

In a previous announcement, five of the stories along with their respective starring actors - including Karasawa Toshiaki, Matsushita Nao, Mizuki Alisa, Sorimachi Takashi, and Nagasawa Masami - were already announced. Moreover, it was revealed that actor Nakai Kiichi is going to serve as a story guide at the beginning of each episode. Today they announced another batch of five stories, making us curious what story they are going to select for the 11th episode.

The five new stories include 'Saisei Majutsu no Onna' starring Suzuki Kyoka, 'Hannin no Inai Satsujin no Yoru' starring Sakaguchi Kenji, 'Shiroi Kyoki' starring Toda Erika, 'Chiisa na Koi no Monogatari' starring Miura Haruma, and 'Kekkon Hokoku' starring Hirosue Ryoko. A total of ten actors have been revealed, and one more actor/actress will be announced at a later time.

Higashino himself commented, "They are all such wonderful actors. I'm really looking forward it."

Fuji TV is going to air 'Higashino Keigo Mysteries' every Thursday at 10:00 pm, and the first episode will be broadcast on July 5th.
