It's been reported that actor/model Mizushima Hiro won the prestigious "Poplar Publishing Grand Prize for Fiction" award for his breakout work, "KAGEROU". "KAGEROU" was submitted under Mizushima's real name, Saito Tomohiro, and was eventually selected from 1,285 entries.

Mizushima Hiro left his managing agency back in September to pursue a writing career.

Mizushima will attend the "Poplar Publishing" press conference on the afternoon of November 1st, and it's likely that he will discuss his work - inspiration, process, and plot as well as charaters.

The "Poplar Publishing Grand Prize for Fiction" was established back in 2005 by Poplar Publishing to create awareness and recognition of "entertainment fiction". The winners of the prize earn approximately 20 million yen (around $250,000 USD), making it the most expensive literary prize in Japan.
