Naoki Hanzawa (Masato Sakai) works as a loan manager at the Osaka Nishi branch of Tokyo Central Bank. One day, Naoki makes a loan contract for 500 million yen with Nishi Osaka Steel Company. Naoki didn't want to approve the loan, but he had to due to the branch manager's order. Nishi Osaka Steel Company seems financially stable, but the company actually hides massive amounts of debt through fraudulent accounts. The company is caught. Three months later, Nishi Osaka Steel Company goes bankrupt.

The bank's branch manager is Asano. He is an ambitious man and tries to shift the blame to Naoki. Naoki then attends an inquiry about the loan failure at the bank's headquarters in Tokyo. Naoki denies fault and promises to retrieve the 500 million yen loan. He did this because it's the only way for Naoki to survive as a banker.

Jason probably i think there will be no such "SP" for him as from what i got from the Japanese intros, the drama is to reflect the real and lively conditions in banking world of Japan and just sometimes giving Naoki massive lucks to carry the story on, but i realized that the toudori(頭取:bank president) is really a cunning person, maybe its just a trick for us to keep us repeating and watching the drama XD

Jasmine Aaah... Watch Sakai-san in The Castle of Crossed Destiny movie.... You, all, will understand why did I call him "brilliant"

Jasmine Sakai-san is really something! He's just brilliant! Bank and its labyrinth?? Never in my list of TV drama but it changed and This is the very 1st time I did really enjoyed watching such as genre. All the actors also has perfect skill in this drama.... It's wow! Wow! Wow! Like this yooooo! Konichiwa from Indonesia... It's good that I have Waku Waku Japan TV.....

70m0r31 Intense throughout the whole drama. This drama is worth watching, especially to individuals that would like to see what the banking sector is like within Japan.

Masato Sakai plays the role well with his fast speeches and attitude towards his superiors. Ueto Aya does well with the support role, as a wife of a banker. From each episode, start to end, the pace of the drama leaves you with no room to stop. 10/10.

Danny Best Series I'd seen for years, ANYWHERE! Great Story, great acting, great suspense, great pacing and thriller. Always eagerly anticipating the next minute of the show, episode by episode. Amazing cliffhanger in the ending. Better be a sequel, there just have to be. Not only the best Japanese series I'd seen in a while, but any series in Asia and even in America. exceptional.

SachiHana Masato Sakai's performance was brilliant, the last episode though had me seeing him as Komikado (which is his best role to date). The story and the pacing of this drama had me at the edge of my seat. The ratings and the praise this series got didn't happen by accident. Great Drama and a Great performance by Komikado sensei!!!

Greta It appears that Hanzawa Naoki-san is gonna be the troubleshooter for the main bank's chairman and is tasked to weed out all the corrupt emplyees from the branches. When the last episode finished I was dismayed...my main thought was 'surely this isn't the end'? there's go to be more...what happens next?

Hopefully there'll be a Sp this year and a second season to answer everyones burning questions. I'm a big fan of Masato Sakai and I hope to see him in more dramas. I still have Legal High 2 to watch so I better get busy lol

miki@_@ Hopefully the chairman is really a good person and sending Naoki to Tokyo Securities can let him see/correct the other aspect of artificial money inflation. ... maybe by then, it will coincide well with the collapse in the real world... Loans is a primary cause of bank failure but securities will be the biggest wolf of all the financial tools that is like a final stage cancerous growth that is channelling the world's resources in the way that is strangling the delicate balance of life on earth.

ringleader Hanzawa Naoki is a BEAST

Bitter Lemon Just finished the series! :D For me it was like; Naoki Hanzawa: Ace Banker

toko modena best japanese drama in 2013 !!! hanzawa kawaiiii smart and cunning!!!


pichiiii i hope the announced the SP soon~~~ well im really curious abt Hanzawa's fate~~ duno why Tokyo Chuo sent him away from Tokyo Chuo HQ

funi i hope there is second season. ahhhh the ending is such twist @__@

Ryu OMG!!!! Pls make sure there will be season 2 cos the ending for the final episode is so disappointing.....

CheerfulSoul This drama is really impressive whether in the perfect screenwriting or the amazing acting skills. Well deserved high ratings.

FromTokyo-Japan-Veronica This drama reached to 54% ratings... wow....The best drama I'd ever seen!! I love the story as well as the characters. And I'm going to read the book!! I'm very glad I live in Tokyo!! I can watch every amazing dramas here!

Cherry I love to watch Hanzawa Naoki drama very much. The actors Masato-san, Mitsuhiro-san, Yuto-san and Teruyuki-san; their acting is great and the story is wonderful. The overall rate I give 98%.

tangent Strange that we have people rating a show that is a month away from it's actual release. Perhaps some of the ladies don't like the way their men look at Aya-chan... ;)
