Ichiro on TV: Furuhata Ninzaburō

Ichiro played a fictional version of himself on the January 4, 2006 episode of Furuhata Ninzaburō, a popular Fuju TV police detective drama. I can’t find any clips other than the intro…

In the episode, Ichiro kills a guy who blackmailed his older brother. Here are a couple screen shots…

The show inspired this bit of fan art

And some comics (I lost track of where the first one came from, but I found the second one here)…

The detective looks like a Japanese Richard Lewis.
