Rookie detective teams with legendary thief to solve cases

Shū Fukuda's Dorokei manga is inspiring a live-action television series that will premiere on NTV this October. The show's title is Dorokei -Keishichō Sōsa Sanka- and it will air on Saturdays at 10:00 p.m.

The buddy cop series focuses on Tsutomu Madarame, a newbie detective, and Haruto, a man in his fifties who is known as the legendary thief "Smoke Crow." The unexpected pair team up to solve cases.

Sexy Zone's Kento Nakajima (live-action Silver Spoon's Hachiken) is playing Madarame in the live-action series, and Kenichi Endō (live-action Crows Zero's Joji Yazaki) is playing Haruto.

The manga launched in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine in January. The first compiled volume shipped on May 18 and the second compiled volume will ship on September 19.
