    Eiga: Kurosagi (2008)

    The screenplay for Eiga: Kurosagi was written by Eriko Shinozaki, based on the Weekly Young Sunday (Shûkan Yangu Sandê) manga serial "Kurosagi - The Black Swindler" by Kuromaru and Takeshi Natsuhara.

Tôkyô Hôsô) - "TBS" for short - its cast also includes Kaoru Sugita, Renji Ishibashi, Tôru Minegishi, Yukiya Kitamura, and Kiyotaka Nishimura.

    Here's a synopsis for the 2006 TBS mini-series Kurosagi from DramaWiki: "Yamashita Tomohisa plays Kurosaki, a young man whose family was destroyed by swindlers. Despite that, Kurosaki grows up to become a con artist known as Kurosagi. As Kurosagi, he swindles other con artists and returns the money to the original victim. He works with the master swindler Katsuragi Toshio (Yamazaki Tsutomu) even though Toshio had a hand in the destruction of Kurosaki's family. ¶ Kurosaki's life begins to change when he meets Yoshikawa Tsurara (Horikita Maki), a young law student who disapproves of his disrespect of the law. Can she persuade Kurosaki to give up swindling and his quest for revenge?"
