Yamikin Ushijima-kun Season 1


Official Website

Tuesdays, 12.55 – 1.25 a.m. from 12 October 2010


Cowcow Finance, the black market lender which Ujishima Kaoru operates, descends on clients who can no longer borrow at other financial institutions. On the other hand, it relentlessly collects debts from debtors without letting up. One day, Okubo Chiaki, a former adult video star appears at Cowcow Finance, hoping to get a position as a regular employee. Ushijima recruits Chiaki, who passed the bizarre company entrance exam he gave. Chiaki’s first client is Ikeda, a freeter (part-time worker) whose ambition is to be a manga artist. Ikeda works at a convenience store while endeavouring to be a manga artist, but he becomes completely addicted to the slot machines at pachinko parlours and runs into debt. He gets himself back against the wall and that is when Cowcow Finance arrives …

Yamada Takayuki as Ushijima Kaoru
The president of Cowcow Finance, a black market lender. He lends money above the legal interest rate – at 5% every 10 days. He has a brilliant mind and is cool and collected, keeping a rein on subordinates with his good judgment and ability to get things done. There is a legend that says he is “person from another world who can aim at the head and take a full swing with a metal baseball bat”.

Katase Nana as Okubo Chiaki
Cowcow Finance’s new employee. She had once been an adult video star but is a normal person with a generous heart and earnestly believes that it is wonderful to be alive.
