The Sabu retrospective series at Japan Society concludes this afternoon with his most recent completed work, six episodes of the television series Troubleman (sometimes spelled Trouble Man).

Description (from Japan Society's website):
Sabu's latest work, written for TV and presented for the first time outside Japan, stars Shigeaki Kato as Kazuo Tokuda, an insurance agent whose life is turned topsy-turvy when he gets thrust into a web of mystery and intrigue involving murderers, would-be rapists and a gang of (angry) yakuza! As things turn out, trouble is nothing new for this man, who might just be the very embodiment of bad luck.
