The Black Swindler

Drama Wiki said:
Yamashita Tomohisa plays Kurosaki, a young man whose family was destroyed by swindlers. Despite that, Kurosaki grows up to become a con artist known as Kurosagi. As Kurosagi, he swindles other con artists and returns the money to the original victim. He works with the master swindler Katsuragi Toshio (Yamazaki Tsutomu) even though Toshio had a hand in the destruction of Kurosaki?s family.

Kurosaki's life begins to change when he meets Yoshikawa Tsurara (Horikita Maki), a young law student who disapproves of his disrespect of the law. Can she persuade Kurosaki to give up swindling and his quest for revenge?

Based on the hit manga series by Natsuhara Takeshi with artwork by Kuromaru serialized in Young Sunday magazine.

this series i've yet to see myself, but from the ratings and popularity it has, it looks to be real good. :nod

and i've noticed that akira and nobuta from nobuta wo produce are the main charcters of this show.

also remember that this is a manga adaptation. that's always a plus. :wink
