Kamenashi Kazuya is out for revenge in new drama “FINAL CUT”

KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya will be starring in the new Fuji TV – Kansai TV drama series “FINAL CUT” to start airing in January next year in the Tuesdays, 9pm timeslot. This is his first Fuji TV drama after almost 11.5 years since “Suppli” in 2006 and his first solo lead role in the network.

This is Kamenashi’s first time challenging a “revenge drama” as the protagonist Nakamura Keisuke. When he was a high school student, his mother was accused of killing a girl, driving her to commit suicide. After 12 years, he searches for the real culprit and moves to take revenge upon those responsible for his mother’s suicide.

Keisuke targets the staff and host involved in the interview of his mother and crosses paths with sisters who hold the key to the case. Keisuke hides his identity when approaching his target, and exposes a fatal video “final cut” where that person’s life ends when it is released. Meanwhile, a police official in charge of the incident 12 years ago appears. Is he a friend or an enemy?


Furthermore, as Keisuke approaches the target sisters as a different person, he begins to fall in love with one of them affecting his revenge plan. What is the relationship between this sister and the incident?

This is Kamenashi’s first time challenging a “revenge drama”. Keisuke who skillfully plays various personas while holding anger and sadness behind a bright smile will be a new challenge for Kamenashi. Kamenashi is also undergoing “Parkour” training for the action scenes in the drama.

Fujiki Naohito will play as Momose Rui, the program host. Hashimoto Kanna will play the character Okawara Wakaba, the younger of the two sisters. The heroine, who will play as the older sister will be announced at a later date.

Sugimoto Tetta, Mizuno Miki, Hayashi Kento, and Yatsui Ichiro are cast as the program staff dealing with the incident 12 years ago. Takaki Yuya (Hey! Say! JUMP) plays Noda Daichi, Nakamura’s childhood friend while Sasaki Kuranosuke plays Takada Seiichiro, the deputy chief of Shinjuku Central Station of the Metropolitan Police Department in charge of the case 12 years ago.

        lol XD
        that, or the heroine is the real culprit :D

    • nothingsover

      I’ll probably check this out! For some reason I always tend to like Kame’s dramas even though I’m not a fan per say. Also it sounds interesting enough and Sasaki Kuranosuke is always a good enough reason to watch a show haha

      I just hope Kame will push Takaki Yuya acting,…

      The culprit would be the elder sis XDXDXDXDXDXD

      Finally a Kame drama on fuji TV.. The rumors have come true… I am already in love with the story… Waiting for confirmation of the leading lady.. Can’t wait for the action scenes.. I hope they are choreographed well. Good luck Kame!

    • Kamenek

      The plot sounds interesting. I’ve been wanting Kame to have dark roles and this might be it. Yamaneko was his best performance so far so I hope this will exceed my expectations.
      The culprit might be his love interest…

    • This seems interesting .
      I like the cast (mainly Sasaki ) except for Takaki Yuya (His acting is bad).
      I like Kame as an actor even though i ain’t his fan .
      Let us hope it will be a memorable one .

      The synopsis sounds interesting for me and kame will do parkour too. I hope the parkour scene will be great. Looking forward to that!
      I like the cast & can’t wait to see who will be the heroine. I like kame and Sasaki Kuranosuke combi in yamaneko. In yamaneko too, kuranosuke san was like a friend or an enemy that turned out to be an enemy in the end. I’m looking forward how it will turn out in this drama.

      The plot sounds interesting and they’re gonna give me parkour Kame?! sign me up! I’m looking forward to it.

      This is interesting.
      I love Kame, but I find myself avoiding his romance drama thus, his latest one with Fukada Kyoko does not look interesting at all.

      So far my best revenge drama is by Miho Kanno; Guilty Akuma to Keiyakushita Onna. It was sad and interesting, and I kind of love the ending.

      This sounds interesting! I might watch this one :).

      Whut I thought Kanna is the main actress…. How unusual for them to not reveal the heroine first.
