Fuji TV revealed on Monday that it is producing a live-action television series adaptation of Kei Koga's Trace: Kasōken Hōi Kenkyūin no Tsuisō (Trace: Recollections of a Forensic Researcher) manga. The series will premiere on January 7 at 9:00 p.m, and will star Eiichiro Funakoshi as Ryōhei Toramaru, Ryo Nishikido as Reiji Mano, and Yūko Araki as Nonna Sawaguchi. The series is titled Trace: Kasōken no Otoko (Trace: The Forensic Researcher Man).
The manga is a crime suspense story set in a forensic laboratory where researchers work to uncover clues from small details. The manga's story begins when Nonna Sawaguchi, a rookie forensic researcher, meets Reiji Mano, the man who solved the case behind the double murder of Nonna's parents.
Koga, who has previously worked in a forensic laboratory, launched the manga in Tokuma Shoten's Monthly Comic Zenon magazine in January 2016. Tokuma Shoten published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on September 20.
