Yuta Hiraoka stars in “God Hand Teru” adaptation

Actor Yuta Hiraoka has landed his first starring role in a drama series. This spring, TBS will begin its live-action adaptation of the manga series “God Hand Teru,” currently being serialized in Shonen Magazine.

The manga, written by Kazuki Yamamoto, revolves around a young man named Teru Mahigashi (Hiraoka). When he was young, his father, a brilliant surgeon, died in an accident, but not before saving Teru’s life. As a result, Teru also aims to become a great surgeon like his father, devoted to never letting a patient die. As a clumsy newcomer at his hospital, he seems to be an unlikely savior. But whenever a patient’s life is in danger, his true powers emerge in the form of his “god hands,” allowing him to successfully perform even the most difficult operations.

In the drama, Asami Mizukawa plays the female lead, a rival doctor. Other cast members include Eri Murakawa, Jun Kaname, Hirofumi Araki, Tetsuya Bessho, and Atsuro Watabe.

“God Hand Teru” will air Saturday nights at 7:56pm, starting on April 11.
