Additional cast members have been revealed for the drama series “QP,” which was first announced at the end of last month. Lead actor Saito Takumi is being joined by a supporting cast that features Kaneko Nobuaki, Watabe Gota, Hayashi Kento, and many others.

As previously announced, “QP” is an adaptation of the manga of the same name by “CROWS” author Takahashi Hiroshi. Saito plays Azuma Ryo, the boss of a gang known as the Tenrokai. Hayashi plays Misaki Hajime, a man who had to give up his dream of becoming a champion boxer and who shows up at the Tenrokai’s door due to his admiration for Ryo. Taguchi Tomorowo serves as Hajime’s “big brother” within the gang.

Kaneko and Watabe play Tom and Jerry, a professional hitman duo from the Kansai area. EXILE member KENCHI plays Mario, a Brazilian-Italian member of the Tenrokai, while Kubota Masataka plays an informant named Eiji.

The head of the rival Yokomizo gang is being played by Shiina Kippei, with Watanabe Dai as his right hand man. Yabe Kyosuke plays the head of another gang.

“QP” premieres on October 5.
