One of the most-watched series for Disney in Japan is Gannibal starring Yuya Yagira.
Based on the manga, Gannibal is a small-town mystery involving a family possibly into cannibalism that erupts filled with twists that no one expects.
Gannibal follows Daigo Agawa (Yagira), a newly hired police officer in Kuge Village. Wrestling with his guilt over a traumatic event that led to his daughter becoming selectively mute, things start off promisingly for the new arrival and his family. However, life in the sleepy community takes a rapid turn when a series of alarming events quickly leads Daigo to the horrifying realization that something is deeply wrong with the villagers. Thrown into a hostile environment with suspense around every corner, will the latest police officer to patrol the streets of Kuge Village be able to bring those responsible to justice before it’s too late?
Producer Terohisa Yamamoto and writer Takamasa Oe made the seven-part series, the team behind the critically-acclaimed film Drive My Car.
