Synopsis
A new type of comedy-adventure about two industrial kings, one new and one old, both diametrically opposed to each other in their values, lifestyle and pursuit of money.

The story centers on two “kings”, Akiba and Etchu.

King Akiba once known for eye-opening acquisitions has since liberated himself from materialistic concerns and the power of money in favor of freely pursuing new value by creativity. King Etchu, on the other hand, serves as CEO of a major investment fund and is driven by an insatiable lust for women and money.
Living according to opposite values and harboring completely different motives, both kings find themselves looking to acquire a key television station in Tokyo, Chuo TV. Their bid to win this prized property brings about a fatefully colossal clash between two evenly-matched tycoons.


在兩個有著完全相反價值觀的新王和舊王之間,圍繞著金錢展開了一段既嚴肅又不乏搞笑的冒險故事,是一部讓人耳目一新的電視劇。

故事的中心人物是兩位王者----秋葉和越中。

秋葉因曾經的大型收購而震驚世間,但現在他對於“金錢的力量”以及“物質的擁有”都保持著距離,成了一名找尋新價值觀的自由人。

與此相反,基金公司的法人代表越中,在貪婪無度的欲望驅使下,毫不掩飾的不斷追求著金錢、物質和女人。

擁有完全相反價值觀的秋葉和越中,因不同動機同時下決心要收購東京的中央電視台。

秋葉和越中最終能否成功收購電視臺?在虛虛實實的計謀周旋之下,二人命中注定的對決之日悄然臨近。
