More information is coming in about next season’s Japanese dramas. And sure it’s called the “summer” season, but the most important hemisphere is just humouring the other, ok?!?
Anyway, here is a little snippet of what’s coming up – information all from Drama Wiki.
Inoue takes on the role of Mio, a selfish brat. Because of an incurable illness, she lives in the U.S. for medical treatment, but she returns to Japan to visit her older brother (Hideaki Ito), whom she has been separated from since their parents’ divorce. She discovers that he’s become a good-for-nothing, employed at a show bar and fallen into debt.
The story revolves around six third-year students at the Tokyo University of Agriculture who go to Hokkaido for a summer to get first-hand training in an agricultural setting. They will perform tasks such as milking a cow, cleaning pig sties, and feeding animals. One scene even features a cow giving birth.
Stars, amongst others, Toda Erica of Liar Game and Nobuta wo Produce.
Based on the manga of the same title by, Atsuko Takakura. The story revolves around a woman working in a department store Itoh whose meager bust has earned her the nickname of “kabe onna” (“kabe” means “wall” and “onna” means “woman”). Unfortunately for her, a well-endowed “yama onna” (“yama” meaning “mountain”) gets assigned to the same department, heightening her insecurity.
Stars Itoh Misaki of Densha Otoko and Gokusen.
Based off the manga of the same name, Ninomiya Kazunari plays the title role of Taro Yamada, a smart, good-looking, and athletic high schooler. Unknown to his classmates, however, is that Yamada is actually living in poverty.
Based off the novel of the same name by, Igarashi Takahisa. The show will feature a comical “Freaky Friday”-like plot, where an accident on a train results in a father and high school daughter exchanging bodies
From just the synopsis, this one sounds the most interesting to me. And it stars that cute girl from My Boss, My Hero, Aragaki Yui!
