Shinobu Kawamata (川俣しのぶ)
Prosecutor Akakabu in Kyoto
120 min. x 1ep. / 60 min. x 8 eps.｜9 episodes
After many long, hard work as a prosecutor’s assistant, Shigeru Hiiragi has finally been promoted to public prosecutor. Known as “The Red Turnip Prosecutor” for his love of pickled turnip and his ability to stir a little humor into the usual staid and tense court, Hiiragi brings a breath of fresh air to the legal trade with his humanism, while also wielding years of legal knowledge and hard-wrought experience, much to the chagrin of elite defense lawyers. Set against the tradition and history of Kyoto, here is a legal mystery with a little extra flavor.
