Fukuda Saki & Gouriki Ayame to star in gISh live-action drama

TV Tokyo announced that they are going to produce a live-action drama adaption of the award-winning manga gIS: Otoko demo Onna demo nai Seig, starring the two young actresses Fukuda Saki and Gouriki Ayame.

gISh depicts the life of the intersexual Hoshino Haru (Fukuda) and his struggles with his family, life and love. He officially was born as a girl, but was raised as a boy throughout most of his childhood. He enrolls into a special senior high school in order to acquire the license of a cook, but due to his birth certificate stating that he is a girl, he is forced to become a female student at the new school. Things become even more difficult for him, when his body starts to become more feminine and he develops deeper feelings for a male student.

Having both male and female anatomical parts, itfs extremely difficult for people with a gender identity disorder to chose either path, and to gain acceptance for who they are. Due to the low degree of recognition and societyfs prejudices, their lives are filled with pain and troubles. Hoshino feels the same pain, but yet he manages to always look like a very bright person.

Fukuda spoke up about this unique role, in which he said: gWhen I first heard the story for this drama, I considered it to be an extremely difficult theme. From now on, as an actress and as the person Fukuda Saki, I am going to be worried about what would be the best way to play this role in order to (correctly) convey the life of an intersexual to the viewers. It would be the greatest blessing for me as an actress if it were to increase the acknowledgment of intersexual people.h

Gouriki, who used to read this manga during her junior high school days, will play the role of one of Hoshinofs mysterious female classmates who tries to get closer to her for a specific reason. This will be Gourikifs first drama in a lead role.

She commented, gIt feels like a dream that my first starring role is going to be in an adaption of the manga I love so much. In order to fully express my feelings and thoughts towards the drama and in order to grow as the person Gouriki Ayame, Ifd like to put all of my effort into this project.h Furthermore, she added, gIfd like to show you my best acting in order to convey the important message of the drama and to gain more acknowledgment for all intersexual people.h

Other actors who will be making an appearance in the drama are Inoue Masahiro, Nishida Naomi and Mina Mikaho.

gIS: Otoko demo Onna demo nai Seih is going to air every Monday at 10pm.

Hamada Gaku, Taira Airi lead suspense drama gPiece Voteh
from Tokyograph by tokyograph

Young actor Hamada Gaku (22) has landed his first starring role in a television drama, after more than a decade of acting experience. He will play the main character in NTVfs gPiece Vote -Touhyou no Kakera-h (tentative title), while Taira Airi (26) will take on the heroine role.

The suspenseful story revolves around 7 young men and women leading ordinary lives, who are suddenly rounded up on a ship called the gPiece Voteh (an apparent pun on gPeace Boath). Similar to the movie gSe7enh which was themed around the seven deadly sins, the dramafs motif will be the gseven modern sinsh which Japanfs youths are unknowingly guilty of. The 7 passengers on the ship are accused of crimes they are unaware of, and they are forced to stake their lives in a deadly game played out on the boat.

Hamadafs character is a college student named Wakiya, though he has been nicknamed gWakiyaku-kunh (gsupporting roleh) when compared to his successful older brother, a well-known businessman. However, after his brother suddenly dies, a mysterious man appears before Wakiya accusing him of causing the death, then takes him onto the Piece Vote.

Meanwhile, Taira plays Iwami Saki, an office worker who hates conflict with other people, so she always ends up holding back her own opinions and ingratiating herself with others.

The series is being directed by Ochiai Masayuki (gKansen,h gParasite Eveh). Screenwriters include Mizoi Eiichi Davis (gSandaime Akechi Kogoroh) and Yamaoka Junpei (gMajisuka Gakuenh).

NTV will broadcast gPiece Voteh on Mondays at 11:58pm, starting on July 4 (first episode begins at 12:18am). The time slot is currently held by the travel variety show gTabizaru,h but it will be converted into a drama time slot after gTabizaruh wraps up its run at the end of June. Along with gMeitantei Conan: Kudo Shinichi e no Chousenjouh and gRokudenashi BLUES,h this will be NTVfs third late-night drama series this summer.

Kuroki Meisa, Tabe Mikako co-star in suspense series gJiuh
from Tokyograph by tokyograph

Kuroki Meisa (23) and Tabe Mikako (22) are acting together for the first time, co-starring in a drama series this summer called gJiu: Keishichou Tokushuhan Sousakei.h The two will play police detectives on the same special investigation team, though their differing personalities lead them to constantly clash with each other.

Tabe has previously starred in a few television dramas, but this will be the first lead role in a series for Kuroki.

The show is based on the gJiuh suspense novel series by Honda Tetsuya. Motoko (Kuroki) is a fierce, physically capable investigator with a strong battle instinct, while Misaki (Tabe) is more intellectual, kind-hearted, and naive. The two of them are both working to track down Jiu, the ringleader responsible for a series of brutal crimes.

The original novels also detailed the charactersf love lives, including intense bedroom scenes between Motoko and her lover. It is not yet known how the drama series will depict that aspect of the story.

Shirota Yu (25) plays a mysterious man connected to Motoko somehow, while Kitamura Yukiya (37) plays a police superior. According to TV Asahi, the role of Jiu will not be played by a Japanese person, but instead by a popular music artist from overseas.

The series will begin in July and air in TV Asahifs Friday 11:15pm time slot.

^ Hmm, another drama involving domestic violence.

Hopefully, it'll be handled with some tact and sensitivity, rather than being gratuitous.
