Their job is to question suspects immediately after a crime, using interrogation skills and psycho-analysis to solve crimes.

Taro Hanazawa has been on the police force for 20 years, but while all of the other recruits in his class have been promoted, Taro still works at the neighborhood koban (community police station). It’s not because he’s a bad cop; on the contrary, Taro is an excellent police officer. But Taro weighs nearly 250 pounds, which makes it difficult for him to chase down criminals, and even harder for his superiors to take him seriously. That is . . . until Chief of Investigation First Division Reiko Nishikori observes Taro’s keen police skills in action and taps him to join her squad. Will Taro be able to keep up with the other detectives? Or will his investigative skills leave the other detectives chasing after him? “Legacy,” Sunday at 5 p.m. The CEO of The Legacy Corporation dies leaving three daughters behind.

With Yoko busy with her studies and Sho with his job as an illustrator, Aya has to hire new staff. Asking her sister Kuni to help in recruiting, Aya employs Kyoko Nakano, a girl with an attitude problem, and she moves into Eri’s old room. One day, Yoko receives news that she has been accepted into a university in Kyoto. In the midst of everyone happily cheering, an elderly woman named Tatsu takes the opportunity to try and leave the cafe without paying. She was stopped in time, but claiming to be homeless and penniless, she requests to pay off her bill by working at the cafe. Sensing that there is more to her story, Daigo offers her to stay at their home, and thus begins her journey as a live-in employee of “Aya.” Tatsu is an outspoken woman and she doesn’t hesitate to tell Kyoko off for her sloppy attire and bad attitude. Although Kyoko couldn’t stand her at first, she soon has a change of heart as she begins to realize that Tatsu is only doing all of it for her own good. Harmony is once again restored at “Aya’s,” but it is short-lived. Sho brings his junior from college, Ryo Okumura, to work at the cafe. Like Sho, Ryo had also quit college halfway through. Since his parents have apparently abandoned him, and with no job nor money, he too starts to work at the cafe.

Aya and all the staff are all in for a surprise. “Behind the Noren,” Sunday at 9 p.m. This is a drama about the fiery relationship between the madam of an old-style Japanese inn and her new daughter-in-law, a former career woman.

They were part of the Choshu clan from Satsuma Prefecture, which is the birthplace of many of Japan’s political leaders.

  • “Hero,” premieres on Monday, April 6, at 7:35 p.m. Kohei Kuryu is a young public prosecutor in Tokyo. Kohei is unlike a typical prosecutor. He refuses to wear a suit and tie, opting for casual clothing. He is a former juvenile delinquent who dropped out of high school and was falsely accused of a felony. He was cleared because a public prosecutor took the time to uncover the facts. This drove him to take his high school equivalency test, study for the bar exam and pass with flying colors. He possesses quick instincts and a kind of cleverness that only someone raised on the streets could have. Kohei’s instincts and determination make him well suited as an investigator and advocate. In 2001, “Hero” achieved the highest Japanese TV drama ratings record in 25 years. The average audience share over the entire series was 34 percent. This original series was followed up with a special in 2006 and the “Hero 2” series in 2014. Fully subtitled in English. “Kujikenaide (Don’t Lose Heart),” premieres on Friday, April 10, at 7:35 p.m. Depicts the life of best-selling Japanese poet Toyo Shibata.

Toyo was encouraged to write poetry by her son Kenichi. She starts to write about her life — suffering from poverty when she was little, hardship during service and happy days with her husband. Gradually her poems engage people’s hearts and minds. Fully subtitled in English. “Ghost Writer,” premieres on Wednesday, April 15, at 7:35 p.m. Risa Tono is a bestselling author who is regarded as extremely gifted in her creativity and ability to write. Although she has already achieved the fame and status in her career, the overwhelming feeling of being stuck resides deep down inside her and she feels surrounded by fear. Yuki, on the other hand, left her hometown and moved to Tokyo to pursue her dream of becoming a writer. Although Yuki has amazing talent with limitless potential, she hasn’t been able to make her writing debut just yet. She was about to finally give up on her dream and get married to her boyfriend back home. One day, by chance, Yuki gets offered a position as Risa’s assistant and accepts the job offer. This decision brings about a major turning point in the lives of these two female writers. Fully subtitled in English. “Kurage no Okurimono,” premieres on Friday, April 17, at 7:35 p.m. At one point, the Kamo Aquarium garnered very little interest and almost faced closing down.

Miraculously, with the addition of the unrivaled collection, the Kamo Aquarium’s dire future was quickly turned around. This documentary is seen through the eyes of the director of the Kamo Aquarium and shows how these rare jellyfish species not only saved the aquarium from the brink of closing, but also how they helped catapult the aquarium’s popularity so that it is now a world renowned establishment. Fully subtitled in English. “Ouroboros – Kono Ai Koso Seigi,” premieres on Friday, April 24, at 7:35 p.m. “Ouroboros” is an ancient symbol that depicts a snake eating its own tail — meaning infinity. Based on a popular comic, a clumsy detective and a cool gang stand up to true evil. Ikuo and Tatsuya grew up in a children’s orphanage together. When their favorite teacher Yuko is murdered, a policeman wearing a gold watch covers up the incident. Ikuo and Tatsuya promise each other to avenge their teacher someday.

One day, Yoko receives news that she has been accepted into a university in Kyoto. In the midst of everyone happily cheering, an elderly woman named Tatsu takes the opportunity to try and leave the cafe without paying. She was stopped in time, but claiming to be homeless and penniless, she requests to pay off her bill by working at the cafe. Sensing that there is more to her story, Daigo offers her to stay at their home, and thus begins her journey as a live-in employee of “Aya.” Tatsu is an outspoken woman and she doesn’t hesitate to tell Kyoko off for her sloppy attire and bad attitude. Although Kyoko couldn’t stand her at first, she soon has a change of heart as she begins to realize that Tatsu is only doing all of it for her own good. Harmony is once again restored at “Aya’s,” but it is short-lived. Sho brings his junior from college, Ryo Okumura, to work at the cafe. Like Sho, Ryo had also quit college halfway through. Since his parents have apparently abandoned him, and with no job nor money, he too starts to work at the cafe. Ryo is a typical youth of today; loud clothes, dyed blonde hair with pink highlights and a couldn’t-care-less attitude. Aya and all the staff are all in for a surprise. “Behind the Noren,” Sunday at 9 p.m. This is a drama about the fiery relationship between the madam of an old-style Japanese inn and her new daughter-in-law, a former career woman.

However, when Naoko’s husband Sosuke abruptly disappears one day, leaving behind a large debt, Naoko tells Shino about her plan to work at the inn to pay off Sosuke’s debts. “Noren” is the short curtain often seen hanging at the entrance to a Japanese business. This is a family drama about the laughs, tears, and battles between a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law that go on behind the curtain. “A Bright Tomorrow (Hanasaku Ashita),” Monday at 8 p.m. In this NHK comedy, a mother who abandoned her five children comes waltzing back into their lives more than 20 years later.

They were part of the Choshu clan from Satsuma Prefecture, which is the birthplace of many of Japan’s political leaders. Fumi was a strong supporter of her brother and his philosophies, and much of the Choshu clan’s success can be attributed to the foundation laid by Shoin and Fumi. Playing the heroine Fumi is Mao Inoue, one of Japan’s up and coming actresses. “Hana Moyu” is the 54th Taiga drama from NHK. “Oyaji Samurai,” Tuesday at 9 p.m. “Oyaji Samurai” is about Kotoji Akame, a shabby, middle-aged, low-ranking samurai of small stature. Oyaji means “older man,” but the actual title of this drama is “Yoidore Kotoji,” which translates into “drunken samurai (or drunken Kotoji).” Kotoji’s drinking often gets him into trouble. One day, after drinking too much alcohol in a drinking contest, Kotoji fails to perform a major duty for his lord. As a result, he is released from service and becomes a wandering samurai. To avenge his lord, Kotoji comes up with a scheme to steal the lances (spears) that are the symbols of prestige for traveling processions of feudal families. He steals the lances of several families, which creates an unlikely alliance amongst them as they scheme to avenge their losses. In the series, Kotoji’s desire to settle down and spend the rest of his days quietly continues to be disrupted by samurai seeking revenge for the stolen lances. And as Kotoji finds himself picking up the sword again, he also deals with love and raising a child for the first time in his life, and begins to find a new meaning in life. “Partners 10,” Thursday at 8 p.m. Season 10!

Taro Hanazawa has been on the police force for 20 years, but while all of the other recruits in his class have been promoted, Taro still works at the neighborhood koban (community police station). It’s not because he’s a bad cop; on the contrary, Taro is an excellent police officer. But Taro weighs nearly 250 pounds, which makes it difficult for him to chase down criminals, and even harder for his superiors to take him seriously. That is . . . until Chief of Investigation First Division Reiko Nishikori observes Taro’s keen police skills in action and taps him to join her squad. Will Taro be able to keep up with the other detectives? Or will his investigative skills leave the other detectives chasing after him? “Fishermen’s Pride (from Sapporo TV),” Friday at 9 p.m. Early each morning, the fishermen of Hokkaido set out for the open ocean.
