On January 31, Fuji TV announced that the lawyer comedy drama 'Legal High' - starring Sakai Masato - will be returning with a special episode on April 13.
In 'Legal High', Sakai plays an eccentric, lavish and moody lawyer with a wicked tongue who partners up with a hot blooded rookie lawyer played by actress Aragaki Yui. Both will reprise their roles for the special, while actor Kitaouji Kinya has been added as the opposing lawyer in the new case.
The drama offered a lot of laughs, but at the same time it gave insight at how lawyers are able to use the law to their advantage and as a weapon against the opposing party.
Komikado Kensuke (Sakai) has quite a problematic personality, which earned him a bad image in the world of lawyers. However, his skills are unprecedented and he can boast with a 100% winning percentage for his cases. The main topic of the upcoming special is going to be bullying in junior high school. Komikado and Mayuzumi Machiko (Aragaki) take the side of the student who was bullied, while Kitaouji plays the veteran lawyer who defends the school. The manly veteran lawyer will be certainly one of the strongest opponents for both Komikado and Mayuzumi.
The producers thanked the enthusiastic supports by the viewers saying, "We have received many questions and playful threats on when we would broadcast a continuation of this drama from our viewers."
Sakai stated, "I was jumping for joy when I heard the story of the special. I get to taste that wicked tongue again for another time. I'm really delighted." He continued, "I worked together with Kitaouji in a drama four years ago and back then I was blown away by his presence and strength. I hope to compete with him as Komikado this time."
Fuji TV will air the 'Legal High' special drama at 9:00 pm on April 13th.
