Keita Tachibana, Koike Teppei star in drama


Keita Tachibana of w-inds. will co-star with Koike Teppei of WaT, in his first drama on TBS called, Ohitorisama.

Playing opposite of him is fellow artist Arisa Mizuki.

Keita will play Hiroyuki Harada, close friend of Shinichi Kamisaka (Koike).

The Drama will start 10/16 on TBS. The first fifteen minutes will run from 22:00~23:09, but the original time will be 22:00~22:54 and will air every Friday night.

This will be Keita’s first drama since his music career and his solo activities.

Good luck Keita, I hope your acting skills are up to par because your opposites are experienced and your not. I hope it’s a lot better than your first movie with w-inds. in 2002, Starlight; because that was just straight giggles. I’ll be watching and praying you don’t look bad.

The award for best writers goes to?

Here’s the new trailer for Yuichi Sato‘s Genkai in a Black Company. The film is based on a popular forum thread on the Japanese internet forum 2chan in which a 26-year-old computer geek documented his struggle working at a “black company” after the death of his mother and subsequent loss of her financial support. A black company (burakku gaisha) is a Japanese slang term referring to companies which overwork their employees beyond the legal limits and generally exploit people who can’t find a better job someplace else due to lack of qualifications or the general state of the economy. The story was also adapted to a best-selling novel last year.

Teppei Koike plays the geek in question, referred to only by his internet screen name “Ma-Otoko”. Maiko, Kei Tanaka, Hiroshi Shinagawa, Tetsuhiro Ikeda, Yasuhi Nakamura, Masako Chiba, and Seiichi Tanabe also star.

“Genkai in a Black Company” will be released in Japan this November.

Oh 2chan you are so popular. So popular that it makes me think twice about lack of creativity in Japan that they had to go to an internet forum to make a movie. Don’t get us wrong, we here at STC love 2chan, it’s where we get a lot of goodies.

So who’s going to watch this?
