It was revealed on the 24th that “Tokyo Love Story” based on comic artist Fumi Shibamon will be converted into a drama for the first time in 29 years. Set in Reiwa with actor Kentaro Ito and actress Shizukawa Ishibashi, it will be distributed from Fuji TV’s video distribution service FOD and Amazon Prime Video this spring.
“Tokyo Love Story” has been serialized in “Big Comic Spirits” (Shogakukan) since 1988, and became a drama on Fuji TV on March 9 in 1991. The love story of Kanji Nagao, played by Yuji Oda, and Rika Akana, played by Honami Suzuki, became a social phenomenon at the time, and it is a monument to the love drama of the 90’s that has been handed down since then.
In this modern version of the work, Ito will be played by Kanji Nagao and Ishibashi will be played by Rika Akana. In addition, Sho Kiyohara plays the role of a female student, Kenichi Mikami, a classmate of female perfection, played by Yosuke Eguchi in the 1991 edition. Anna Ishii of E-girls appears as Satomi Sekiguchi, a classmate of Kanji played by Yumi Arimori and Kanji is thinking of Kanji.
Ito said, “I was very honored to be able to do a perfect cure with the” Tokyo Love Story “that everyone knows. However, there are plenty of smartphones and modern elements that were not in the old Tokyo Love Story, so I hope you enjoy the new Tokyo Love Story made by Reiwa. ”
Ishibashi said, “ When I got this story, it was a new challenge for me to be in a role that plays a sensational role called Rika Akana, and to enter a work that is a bit embarrassing to face love from the front. I was thrilled and excited because the shooting was so delicate and too straightforward that I was hurt, joyful, and tearful every day with Rika, who lives hard while she hurt herself. I needed energy, but I was happy to be able to play such a wonderful woman, and I’m glad if each character could see her growing up by loving someone. ”
Kiyohara commented, “At first, I heard that we were making a huge hit drama called” Tokyo Love Story “now, and there was a lot of pressure and excitement. I felt that there weren’t many, and through this work, I was able to make myself think in various ways. I was really thinking about it and challenged Mikami, I’m looking forward to seeing it in your eyes, and now, with this cast, I created a work called "Tokyo Love Story” Please look forward to it. I would like many people to watch it. “
Ishii said, "When I heard the title, I was surprised. I was really happy because I didn’t dream of putting it in that world! I was so excited about what kind of work it would be. There was a lot of sympathy for Sekiguchi Satomi when I read it, so when I actually performed, I performed while being aware of that sympathy.There were various scenes, but I learned a lot and it was fun! The hearts of the four people swaying in the land of Tokyo are beautifully and intricately depicted in a beautiful and complex way. I want you to sympathize with someone and enjoy a group play while overlapping with others! ”
Also, the original Shibamon said, “Tokyo Love Story, which was dramaized in 1991, will be re-dramaized for the first time in 29 years. In this drama, the characters are utilized while the stage is modern So, smartphones and SNS that are not in the original will also appear naturally.Tokyo has also changed a lot.In a time when there was neither Starbucks nor Uniqlo, Kanchi and Mikami smoked tobacco. I’m really looking forward to seeing how young actors, who weren’t even born, will play Canchi and Rica. “
"I wanted to be involved in drama production because I watched Tokyo Love Story in 1991. I was a 17-year-old high school student.” 29 years later, I would like to make it myself … with deep emotion and immense pressure.It was a first time for young people, a nostalgic new one for those who knew the past. I hope many people can watch it with a feeling. Please look forward to it! “
The script is Ayako Kitagawa. Directed by Koichiro Miki, Koto Nagata and Toru Yamamoto
