For the first time ever, superstar Okawa Hashizo’s record setting performance as Zenigata Heiji comes to DVD! Heiji, a detective whose beat is the area of Myojin Shrine goes beyond simple duty to make sure that justice is served. He ferrets out wrongdoing and corruption regardless of how high up his investigations lead. Always on the side of the victims, he uses his unique method of throwing coins (Zeni) to disable the suspects, hence the nickname “Zenigata.” Okawa Hashizo starred in a total of 888 episodes, with several different co-stars, from 1966 until his death in 1984, and is recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest running actor in a one-hour long television series for his performance as Heiji. Zenigata Heiji puts his life and career on the line time and time again in this must-see TV!
