Mano Erina added to the cast of Sono Shion's upcoming drama 'Minna! Esper dayo!'
On February 19th, it was announced that singer and actress Mano Erina is going to appear in TV Tokyo's upcoming drama 'Minna! Esper dayo!' starring Sometani Shota.
'Minna! Esper dayo!' will be directed by famed movie director Sono Shion ('Cold Fish'). The story follows an ordinary high school student named Kamogawa Yoshiro (Sometani), who suddenly realizes that he has the ability to read minds and decides to use his power to help others. However, he isn't the only one who suddenly received a special ability, and not everyone has the same mindset as he does about helping other people. He suddenly finds himself in a fight against people who are using their new powers for evil deeds. The story is based on the manga of the same name created by Wakasugi Kiminori ('Detroit Metal City').
Mano is going to play a female high school student and the love interest of the protagonist. The character seems like a neat and clean girl, but her mindset isn't all that pure and she uses a lot of foul language. This role is going to be Mano's first regular role in a drama series broadcast by a major TV network and her first big project since graduating from Hello! Project on February 23rd. She commented, "I want people to think of her as a scary young woman who speaks her mind frankly while making everyone around her believe that she is just a charming girl."
According to officials, Mano is going to challenge herself to acting and speaking like an indecent girl for the first time in her career. This could be the first step in trying to get rid of her own neat and clean image.
In related news, it was announced that actress Kaho has joined the cast as well.
TV Tokyo is going to air 'Minna! Esper dayo!' every Friday night at 12:12 am starting in April.
