i really have a feeling that kanata-kun will have a new drama (it's summer in Japan so Kanata-kun will somehow have time to shoot for a new drama ne~ ) that's why i regularly check his site this past few days. Unfortunately, there's no update. Luckily, i found the post ofblesyeecute028
"Actor Yuya Yagira (20) has been given his first lead role in a television drama series. He will be the star of WOWOW's "TOKYO23: Survival City," based on Takeshi Arashida and Eiji Hashimoto's "TOKYO23" manga series.
Set in the 23 special wards of Tokyo, the action series revolves around the mysterious "X Game," a deadly competition with a 100 million yen prize. Participants are given a bracelet, and those who are able to wear it until the end of the game are awarded the prize. Those who can't keep it on fall victim to unusual deaths. Yagira plays Noboru, an unemployed youth who enters the game hoping to achieve his dream of becoming a martial arts fighter. Yagira reportedly had to shed 10 kilograms for the role.
Kanata Hongo (19) plays Noboru's ally in the game. Other cast members include Maho Nonami, Rin Takanashi, and Yoji Tanaka.
The show is scheduled to run for five episodes in WOWOW's Saturday midnight time slot, starting on September 4."
It's TOKYO23: Survival City!
I'm trying to search for what kind of character will kanata take but it seems i can't find any source or anything about the manga... why? why? why? But anyway, i'll try to search again tomorrow. i need to know the story. but it seems this is also talking about death! Will he still take the dark/cool/cute role?
it really doesn't matter for as long as kanata-kun is acting. lol. i think 5 episodes is too short. but oh well.... for as long as kanata's on it. :))
so it's really a new drama! yay! But kanata-kun haven't updated his blog so i'm still waiting for his official words. O.o
He'll be acting together with Yuya Yagira (He won best actor at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival),
Remember her? She acted together with kanata-kun in GOTH. They are acting again together... it's so nice. I have to admit... they both look cute together :))
i can't control my self... i'm sharing this picture... lol. they really look so cute ne~
during GOTH times... kawaii kanata-kun!
i don't have (or maybe i lost) the picture where both of them are holding hands... during the part where they are sitting. *sigh*
also acting together with maho nonami and yoji tanaka.
