It was announced that Yamada Yusuke's popular novel "Real Onigokko" will get a serial drama adaptation titled "Real Onigokko THE ORIGIN", and Hongo Kanata will be taking the lead role.
"Real Onigokko" has been adapted into comic, game, and live-action movies previously, but according to Hongo, the TV drama adaptation will be the one that stays true to the original novel the most.
"Real Onigokko" sets in a near future where people whose last names are "Sato", become targets of a real tag, and when they are caught, they get killed. In the drama, Hongo will be playing "Sato Tsubasa", and Shimizu Fumika will be Tsubasa's younger sister "Sato Ai". It was also announced Yokohama Ryusei will be participating as Tsubasa's best friend named "Sato Hiroshi".
Hongo commented, "This TV drama adaptation is like focusing on even the finest of details, and it brushes up the original well. The viewers will be able to enjoy the speedy and simple evolution."
Reportedly, the filming for the drama has already begun, and Hongo revealed that he went to eat curry together with Yokohama between takes. He said, "I told him we had curry by catering when he had the day off, and he was depressed about it, so I took him." Yokohama also said with a smile, "I felt uneasy since this is my first time to be a part of the main cast members for a drama, but Kanata-kun guides me with many things nicely. He even treated me to curry."
TV drama "Real Onigokko THE ORIGIN" will be aired on TVS, CTC, and tvk starting on April 9th (every Tuesday at 1:00 am).
