Some details are now out about Tsuyoshi Kusanagi’s new comedy series, ‘Ninkyo Helper,’ which starts filming this week. One major cast addition is Meisa Kuroki, who will take on the heroine role.
‘Ninkyo Helper’ stars Kusanagi as the boss of a yakuza group. As part of training, his group’s parent organization orders all of its subordinate bosses to work as nursing helpers at an elderly institution. This includes Kusanagi, as well as Kuroki, a female yakuza boss who starts out as Kusanagi’s rival.
