Mano Erina added to the cast of Sono Shions upcoming drama Minna! Esper dayo!



On February 19th, it was announced that singer and actress Mano Erina is going to appear in TV Tokyos upcoming drama Minna! Esper dayo! starring Sometani Shota.

Minna! Esper dayo! will be directed by famed movie director Sono Shion (Cold Fish). The story follows an ordinary high school student named Kamogawa Yoshiro (Sometani), who suddenly realizes that he has the ability to read minds and decides to use his power to help others. However, he isnt the only one who suddenly received a special ability, and not everyone has the same mindset as he does about helping other people. He suddenly finds himself in a fight against people who are using their new powers for evil deeds. The story is based on the manga of the same name created by Wakasugi Kiminori (Detroit Metal City).

Mano is going to play a female high school student and the love interest of the protagonist. The character seems like a neat and clean girl, but her mindset isnt all that pure and she uses a lot of foul language. This role is going to be Manos first regular role in a drama series broadcast by a major TV network and her first big project since graduating from Hello! Project on February 23rd. She commented, I want people to think of her as a scary young woman who speaks her mind frankly while making everyone around her believe that she is just a charming girl.

According to officials, Mano is going to challenge herself to acting and speaking like an indecent girl for the first time in her career. This could be the first step in trying to get rid of her own neat and clean image.

In related news, it was announced that actress Kaho has joined the cast as well.

TV Tokyo is going to air Minna! Esper dayo! every Friday night at 12:12 am starting in April.

Arashis Ninomiya Kazunari to host own variety program



Popular group Arashis Ninomiya Kazunari will have his own variety program titled Nino-san starting in April on NTV. This will mark his first time serving as the sole MC.

The program is said to be a matching trial program in which 5 different directors from NTV will come up with a new plan every week, and they will find out which director would be the best-suited to work with Ninomiya. There will be a total of 10 episodes, and they will pick the best attempt among those episodes. Then, the chosen episode will become a regular program, which will start airing sometime after this fall.

The highlight of the program will be what kind of new charm Ninomiya would show, and which director could enhance Ninomiyas charm the most.

The 5 directors include Uetoshi Ryuta (Arashi ni Shiyagare), Uchida Hidemi (Sekai no Hate made Itte Q!), Nasu Taisuke (Guruguru Ninety-nine), Hashimoto Kazuaki (Hiru Nandesu!), and Miyamori Hiroki (StarDraft Kaigi).

Ninomiya commented, So this is the first time I will be the sole MC. I am very happy honestly! Everything will be a new experience for me, but I will try my best so that I wont be the one who fails the tryout.

According to the producer, Ive always felt Ninomiya-sans high response capability, and I wanted to see him serving as MC by himself. I hope it can show the viewers a new side of Ninomiya-san, which he does not even notice himself.

Nino-san will be aired in a late-night time slot, but its broadcasting time has not yet been decided.

Ito Hideaki & Sakaguchi Kenji to team up as detectives in new drama Doubles



On February 22, TV Asahi announced that the two actors Ito Hideaki and Sakaguchi Kenji will co-star in the upcoming detective drama titled Doubles.

10 years has passed since Ito and Sakaguchi last starred together in a project and in Doubles they are going to deal with heinous crimes as the strongest detective partners on TV. The drama is set at the central police station in Shinjuku, Tokyo and said to feature plenty of action, drama and comedy.

Both actors have already been portraying strong and fighting men in their trademark series Umizaru and Iryu, respectively. The last time they actually co-starred together was in the 2002 drama Tentai Kansoku (Fuji TV). This time they are playing hot-blooded and righteous detectives who fight against increasing number of heinous crimes in Shinjuku.

Ito is portraying a thoughtless detective named Yamashita Shunsuke who doesnt seem to care about the minor details when being on a case. Sakaguchi is playing a more serious and more hot-blooded kind of detective named Tashiro Keiichi. Their actions and opinions are often clashing with each other, but despite those disputes they always end up cooperating in order to solve all the different cases.

Ito commented, Kenji and I are of the same age, but when we worked together 10 years ago, we were still in our twenties. Back then we sort of tried to keep each other in check and werent able to be all that upfront with each other. Now we get the chance to work together again at the end of our thirties, and with that part between us gone, Id like us to create a great drama together.

He continued, My character will do a lot of action, handle guns and catch a lot of those small details related to a case. I want to create a character that even the very young viewers will admire and think of as cool. There have been many detective dramas already, but I hope the two of us will be able to leave our mark with this new detective series.

Sakaguchi stated, Im looking forward to work together with Hideaki again after 10 years. Moreover its going to be a detective drama! Im really happy since we boys love detective dramas (laughs) I want to try my best as long as my physical strength lets me to.

He continued, In our twenties, I strongly felt of Hideaki as my rival. I absolutely couldnt lose to him and observed him all the time, but right now I can only think about how nice it will be to create a great drama by joining our forces. I want us to build a duo that people simply wont be able to hate, although they always act recklessly.

The story follows detective Yamashita and Tashiro as they get transferred to a new special unit of the very best detectives that operate from the station in Shinjuku. This new unit is often being referred to as Section 0.

Doubles is written by Ozaki Masaya (Umechan Sensei) and TV Asahi is going to air this drama every Thursday at 9:00 pm starting in April.

NHK drama Itsuka Hi no Ataru Basho de came out on top with a very high satisfaction rate of 67.5%, though it only ranked on 11th place in Oricons survey about the most anticipated dramas prior to the start of the winter season.

Those polled asked viewers to give 12 prime time dramas and four night dramas (11:00 pm and later) a satisfaction score, from completely unsatisfying to absolutely satisfying, on a scale from 1 to 10 (with 10 being the best).

The satisfaction rate seen in the ranking below describes how many of the 500 people who are watching the drama ranked it with a score of 8 or higher.

While Oricon BiZ didnt go into much detail in the actual ranking or the public article, they released some additional information for the two dramas in first and the second place.

Itsuka Hi no Ataru Basho de only makes 91.9% of its viewers tune in again next week.

Mano Erina added to the cast of Sono Shions upcoming drama Minna! Esper dayo!



On February 19th, it was announced that singer and actress Mano Erina is going to appear in TV Tokyos upcoming drama Minna! Esper dayo! starring Sometani Shota.

Minna! Esper dayo! will be directed by famed movie director Sono Shion (Cold Fish). The story follows an ordinary high school student named Kamogawa Yoshiro (Sometani), who suddenly realizes that he has the ability to read minds and decides to use his power to help others. However, he isnt the only one who suddenly received a special ability, and not everyone has the same mindset as he does about helping other people. He suddenly finds himself in a fight against people who are using their new powers for evil deeds. The story is based on the manga of the same name created by Wakasugi Kiminori (Detroit Metal City).

Mano is going to play a female high school student and the love interest of the protagonist. The character seems like a neat and clean girl, but her mindset isnt all that pure and she uses a lot of foul language. This role is going to be Manos first regular role in a drama series broadcast by a major TV network and her first big project since graduating from Hello! Project on February 23rd. She commented, I want people to think of her as a scary young woman who speaks her mind frankly while making everyone around her believe that she is just a charming girl.

According to officials, Mano is going to challenge herself to acting and speaking like an indecent girl for the first time in her career. This could be the first step in trying to get rid of her own neat and clean image.

In related news, it was announced that actress Kaho has joined the cast as well.

TV Tokyo is going to air Minna! Esper dayo! every Friday night at 12:12 am starting in April.
