Just a quick update… I just couldn’t resist!
The cast is complete and a commercial preview is out. It was just a little sneak peek, but I can say that I liked what I saw and I’m even more excited to see the drama come January! It will be aired on Fuji TV starting 01/08/2008, Tuesday 21:00. Mark your calendars!
Let’s move on to the cast photos and preview, shall we? ^_^
L to R: Narumi Riko (as Hanamoto Hagumi), Ikuta Toma (as Takemoto Yuta), Narimiya Hiroki (as Morita Shinobu), Mukai Osamu (as Mayama Takumi), Harada Natsuki (as Yamada Ayumi), Murakami Jun (as Hanamoto Shuji).
Do you still have some doubts with the casting? Watch the 1st preview.
The commercial is such a teaser! I’m not familar with the actors, so I can’t really comment about them, but I liked how they were able to manage to find the actors/actresses that look the part, or at least make them look the part. Here’s to hoping the storyline will be done well.
It looks like the Powers that Be have granted my wish since the Nomiya x Yamada arc looks like it will be included seeing that Nomiya is cast. Yay! ;P Miwako is there too, and surprisingly, even Lohmeyer-senpai! ~Lol.
The anime really struck a chord in me and I absolutely loved it. I’m really looking forward for another round of hilarity, insightful and heartfelt voice-overs/commentaries, and a roller coaster of emotions from this one. Oh, and time to prepare loads of Kleenex too. 😛
