So, it looks like there will actually be some decent, or at least promising, dramas this winter season!
It was just announced that 亀梨和也 (Kamenashi Kazuya) will be starring in １ポンドの福音 (1 pound no fukuin), 1 Pound Gospel, based on Takahashi Rumiko's manga series of the same name. The story is about a boxer who turns pro at the age of 19. Unfortunately, due to his gluttonous ways, he finds himself facing loss after loss because he cannot stay within his weight limit. One day after losing a match, he wanders into a church where he meets a naive, fledgling nun, and he immediately finds himself interested in her. The series is set to air in January on NTV.
*Here's the release "trailer" for the drama.
Another drama that I'm sure many people will be excited about is ハチミツとクローバー (Hachimitsu to kuroba), Honey and Clover, based on Umino Chika's hit manga series of the same name. It will star 成海璃子 (Narumi Riko) who's been in some stuff that I don't know...well apparently she was in Trick, Trick2...for like an episode each and Trick: The Movie (2002)...for some part...I don't remember her...but she was there...I guess...I dunno...don't remember her. Plus she was born in like 1992...holy crap she's young! So, she was like 10 when she was in the movie! OMG! I am so old! Okay (sigh)...not important...moving on...It ALSO stars 生田斗真 (Ikuta Toma), who's been in some stuff I don't know...he was in 花より男子 (hana yori dango) for an episode and 人にやさしく (hito ni yasashiku) for an episode (great drama). So lucky him. Oh, and he's with Johnny's...SURPRISE! ハチミツとクローバー is about 5 college kids and their lives/love lives. This drama is set to air Tuesday's on Fuji TV.
Original drama's are rare it seems. Lately a lot of manga have made it to live action like, のだめカンタービレ,めぞん一刻, ライフ, 働きマン, LIAR GAME, 花より男子...I could go on for days...not necessarily a bad thing, but originality would be nice.
Some exciting news! クローズ ZERO rocked it in the box office yo!
And here's a little som'n som'n for you all. It's win a date with DJ Ozma...and friends...hahah...it's about 3/4 of the way over 'cause I can't fit the whole thing in here...you can check it out on YouTube...but here is a fun part. He even performs "Spiderman"...spiders super glued on crotches...heavy thrusting...and dirty lyrics...what could be better? Plus, I think one of the "chicks" they are on a "date" with is a dude...can you guess which one? The clip is kinda long, but worth it.
I'd so go on a date with DJ Ozma! （＾＿－）☆wink
