Keita Tachibana and Koike Teppei attend drama event

ohitorisama

The cast of new TBS drama “Ohitorisama” was held today (10/13).

The story is about a 33-year old teacher (Arisa Mizuki) who falls for her junior of 10 years (Koike Teppei). It’s a romantic comedy.

Arisa Mizuki and Koike Teppei are both excited for this drama, as it’s been a while since a romantic comedy like this has been aired.

Mizuki stated with a smile that, “there are a lot of dramas out there where it’s about children and housewives, so doing this kind of drama is quite refreshing.”

Also at the event was Keita Tachibana (w-inds.), who will also be starring in the drama as Teppei’s best friend.

Takako Uehara injured

uehara takako

Takako Uehara of SPEED, injured herself during a performance on 9/26 in Kanazawa. Takako sprained her lumbar vertebrae and has been forced to take rest. The next day performance was cancelled as well.

When SPEED announced their comeback last year and promised a nation-wide tour this year, they did not disappoint. But with this injury the groups tour will be on hiatus until 11/1.

We hope you get better Takako. I was so happy to see SPEED back and in full effect, that this minor setback won’t slow down SPEED‘s comeback.
