The title character is Hasegawa Heizō, head of the special police who had jurisdiction over arson-robberies in Edo. Nicknamed "Onihei," meaning "Heizō the demon," he led a band of samurai police and cultivated reformed criminals as informants to solve difficult crimes.
Four actors have portrayed Onihei on television. The first was Matsumoto Hakuō I. Tetsurō Tamba and Kinnosuke Nakamura also played the lead in Toho series on NET. More recently, Nakamura Kichiemon II, son of Hakuō, led a cast in a Shochiku production on Fuji Television.
The Fuji series ran from 1989 to 2001, with occasional short series and specials as recently as 2007. Until his death in 2001, Edoya Nekohachi III portrayed the informant Hikojū, often paired with Omasa (Meiko Kaji). Another informant was played by Chōsuke Ikariya.
