Characters

* Fukuyama Masaharu - Yukawa Manabu
Assistant Professor at Teito University's Physics Department. A genius physicist, Yukawa's also an all-round sportsman, tall, handsome, with excellent fashion sense but eccentric. Police detectives gave him the name "Galileo" out of respect for his ability to unhesitatingly and logically analyse from unexpected angles with his brilliant mind. He was in the same university cohort as Kusanagi, and often listens to Kusanagi's cases concerning signs of the occult, giving him the key to the cases. However, Yukawa has no interest in criminals and investigation. He just has a strong desire to prove and unravel phenomenon that occurs in the cases.


* Shibasaki Kou - Utsumi Kaoru
Rookie female detective, and Yukawa's partner. She was transferred from the Traffice Police department in accordance to her wishes. The replacement of Detective Kusanagi, Utsumi is young, frank, passionate and favours emotions over logic. She respects her senior, Kusanagi Shunpei, and hopes to be like him one day. Her relationship with Yukawa is like oil and water.


* Shinagawa Hiroshi - Yuge Shiro
Detective with Kaizuka Police Precinct. As Utsumi's senior, he often acts together with Utsumi in investigations. He's a rather comical character with a cocky side, and a weak side when beaten.


* Kitamura Kazuki - Kusanagi Shunpei
Detective with Kaizuka Police Precinct, and Yukawa's friend. He earned himself the nickname "Mystery Hunter" because his ability to solve occult cases is second to none. In recognition of his achievements, he is transferred to the police agency's first investigative division but in truth, he has Yukawa to thank for almost all his achievements. Kusanagi is also a man who likes any type of woman.


* Watanabe Ikkei - Kuribayashi Hiromi
Yukawa's assistant at Teito University. He is unsympathetic towards police who bring cryptic cases that disturb research.


* Maya Miki - Jonouchi Sakurako
A beautiful medical examiner. She's cool and collected no matter how horrible the corpse before her looks. She perceives the truth behind "Mystery Hunter" Detective Kusanagi's many achievements.

Looks to be an interesting drama... I'll be lurking on D-Addicts for this one. Smile

If he's referred to as Galileo Tantei, should he be called Gai-Tan, just like Kuishinbo Tantei is referred to as Kui-Tan? Beaten

Shukan Gendai recently reported rumours of tension on the set caused by Shibasaki Kou's surly behaviour. She has been curt towards co-star Fukuyama Masaharu, but he has taken it good-naturedly. Moreover, not accustomed to waking early for rehearsals, she had rubbed her fellow cast members the wrong way with her bleary eyes and sluggish manner. A tense atmosphere pervades the set during shoots. With regard to her disrespectful demeanour, crew members have coined the phrase "especially blue days" and learnt to avoid her when they see her in a bad mood. They just hope that the production will be completed without a hitch.

Shibasaki is lucky to have a gentleman, Masha as co-star, or else she may have gotten a dose of her own medicine. ive read abt her bad attitude before, that she hated drama shootings because they're too time consuming.

Why is she acting like a diva?

Has her success gone to her head? Head Scratch

I doubt it. She'll probably be in suits all the time.

Press Conference for Galileo



Cast of Galileo (from left to right): Watanabe Ikkei, Shibasaki Kou, Fukuyama Masaharu, Maya Miki, Shinagawa Hiroshi

The press conference for Galileo, which premieres next Monday, 15 October at 9.00 p.m. Fuji TV (10 episodes), was held in Tokyo on 9 October. This drama is a screen adaptation of Higashino Keigo's short novels, Tantei Galileo and Yochimu. In the drama, Fukuyama Masaharu, who returns to the screens after four years, plays the genius physicist and assistant university professor, Yukawa Manabu. Yukawa solves difficult paranormal cases that the police approach him with. His partner, Utsumi Kaoru, played by Shibasaki Kou in her first role as a police detective, is a character that doesn't appear in the original work. Asked if there would be any romantic development between the two characters, Fukuyama said, "It's a relationship in which friendship and trust come first. If I were female, I won't like Yukawa." "I'd dislike it if such a noisy female is around," Shibasaki said. How the drama will progress is "a secret" Director Nishitani indicated.
