Sakai Masato & Aragaki Yui to star as lawyers in new drama 'Legal High'

Fuji TV has just announced another new drama for the upcoming spring season titled, 'Legal High'. This new drama will star actor Sakai Masato and actress Aragaki Yui as lawyers who aren't really that fond of each other.

'Legal High' is an original and thrilling comedy written by popular scriptwriter Kosawa Ryota (the "ALWAYS" series). The title "legal high" means "to get high on law", which is a direct hint at the main character, lawyer 'Komikado Kensuke' (Sakai), who cannot get enough from using the law at his advantage in the courtroom. Komikado comes from a 3rd rate university, however, he passes the bar examination and opens up a law office.

Komikado is an absolutely arrogant and eccentric fellow who loves money, fame, and women more than anything else. His wicked tongue is something else, much to the despair of his very serious colleague 'Mayuzumi Machiko' (Aragaki). They fight at every opportunity, but as usual that seems to be the perfect flowerbed for a gradually growing love. Despite Komikado's arrogant nature, he's working under the honorable creed that a lawyer should always work in the best interest of his client. He simply knows how to exhibit his abilities in the courtroom whenever things are looking bad and in his career has won every single lawsuit.

Sakai commented about why he accepted the offer, "The script is just too interesting. Furthermore, it's my first time working with Aragaki. I want to work as hard as I can and hope that will be enough to keep up with her energy."

Also appearing in the drama will be Namase Katsuhisa as the former boss of Komikado who is now the head of a major law office, Koike Eiko as Komikado's secretary, and Satomi Kotaru as the clerk for the odd jobs in Komikado's office. For Satomi this will be his first Fuji TV drama in 15 years.

'Legal High' is going to replace this season's 'Strawberry Night' in the popular 9:00 pm time slot on Tuesday. Its first episode will air in April.
