Fuji TV revealed the first pictures of actresses Yonekura Ryoko and Kiritani Mirei dressed up as cabin attendants for their upcoming drama, "HUNTER ~Sono Onnatachi, Shoukin Kasegi~".

In the drama Yonekura plays a woman named 'Isaka Rei', an underpaid cabin attendant who ends up becoming a bounty hunter due to some strange incident. Having a strong sense of justice, she quickly becomes a hunter feared by all criminals. Kiritani, who plays her junior at work, also eventually ends up becoming a bounty hunter.

The day they shot the pictures, the cast filmed a scene for the first episode at the airport. Yonekura and Kiritani are dressed as cabin attendants and witness how a foreign star gets swarmed by fans. Kiritani eventually joins the group of fans, when suddenly some guy with a snatched bag tries to escape from the airport. Yonekura reacts quickly and throws her trolley in front of his legs. After a short struggle, she successfully arrests the thief and retrieves the stolen bag.

Yonekura said, "It feels a bit strange to wear such a uniform again after such a long time." Commenting on the action scenes, she said, "I love and enjoy dramas that require physical fitness. I can relive some old feelings again. Most my recent roles required me to be more of a talkative person, but with this role it feels like I'm going back to what I'm really good at."

Kiritani commented, "Every time I get on a plane I start to think how amazing cabin attendants are. Actually wearing this outfit today feels a bit like a dream." Regarding filming together with Yonekura, she said, "I was very nervous and timid in the beginning, so I was very happy when she nonchalantly started to talk to me. It has been so much fun since the first day."

The ladies will be working with fellow actors Horiuchi Keiko, Tanihara Shosuke, and Koizumi Kotaro in the drama.

The first episode of "HUNTER" will air on October 11th, and will broadcast a new show every Tuesday at 10 PM.
