  • Title: ボディガード
  • Title (English): Bodyguard
  • Format: Renzoku
  • Episodes: 11
  • Broadcast network: TV Asahi
  • Broadcast period: 1997-Jul-10 to 1997-Sep-18
  • Theme song: Himawari, by Nagabuchi Tsuyoshi


It starts with bodyguard Tsuyoshi Nagabuchi saving the president of a mythical English-speaking country from an assassin's bullet, but a scene in which a gun was held to a waiter's head with the camera shifting to show ketchup exploding against a wall was neither authentic nor necessary. Nagabuchi lives with junior partner Atsushi Onita, who in real life rose to fame as a professional wrestler. So he is up to scenes like the one where he bangs his head against concrete blocks or the numerous scenes in which Nagabuchi clouts him in the head for the fun of it. Forget this one. With bodyguards like that, who needs enemies?
