Neon Genesis Evangelion's Hideaki Anno and Kazuya Tsurumaki help out with the concept and scenario, while the scriptwriting will be handled by SPEC and Keizoku's Yumie Nishiogi. The drama will begin in October, Sunday nights at 9 on TBS, taking over Hanzawa Naoki's timeslot.
Character correlations chart:
Jesse (Johnny's Jr.)
- つまらなそうLooks boring
- 何だこの棒演技の寄せ集めは明らかにネームバリューで視聴率稼ぐ気満々やん。もうそういう時代じゃないのにWhat's with this parade of ham actors?
They're obviously trying to get ratings through name value.
We're not in that kind of era anymore.
- 能年ちゃんが断った役だな大島優子があまちゃんに出る出る詐欺だったが、こっちに来たかOh, it's the role Nounen-chan rejected.
There was talk that Yuko Oshima was set to appear in Amachan, so she's the one who came here, huh?
- 天才物理学者とか身の程知らん設定ばっかだなGenius scientist? All these characteristics seem to be ignoring the actual place of these actors.
- 本田と山本に処刑されにいくだけだぞwHonda and Yamamoto? It's like they're just headed for their own execution.
- 山本美月に本田翼って売り出したいの集めてきたなこの2人女優業向いてるようには思えないが…They seem to have gathered the ones they want to promote, like Mizuki Yamamoto and Tsubasa Honda.
I don't think these 2 are cut out to be actresses though...
- 今回はワキもたいしたことないなつーか大根だらけじゃねーか気になるのは桐谷くらいしかしその桐谷もそこまでのヒキはない結果、やはり観ないEven the supporting cast don't seem too good this time.
Rather, they're all ham actors.
The only one that gives me interest is Kiritani.
But even that Kiritani isn't enough.
Bottomline: I won't be watching this.
- 何歳年下の妹やねんwwwWow, how big of an age difference with her younger sister www
- 20歳以上離れてんじゃないのかAren't they over 20 years apart?
- 木村くんはリアルにパパやってんだから、いい加減お父さん役やってみろよ。静香が嫌なら無理にとは言わんが。Kimura-kun's a papa in real life so he should already be doing father roles.
I won't force the issue though if Shizuka doesn't want him to.
- 柴咲ってそこそこのキャリアなのに一度も連ドラで主演したことがない不思議Shibasaki's had a pretty good career, but it's a mystery that she's never been in the lead role of a serial drama.
- 安堂ロイドこの時点で終わってないかANDO LLOYD
Don't you think the drama's destined to go down from this name alone?
- またキャスティングありきのドラマかよ脚本を優先しろやAnother drama where they're giving more emphasis on the cast?
Oi, prioritize the scriptwriting.
- 大根祭りｗｗｗｗｗｗｗｗｗそういえばキャスティング断られまくってるって記事出てたな納得だわA ham actor festival wwwwwwwww
Oh yeah, I read an article that said a lot of actors have turned down this drama.
I'd understand that.
- キムタクと柴咲コウ以外のキャストがひどい見ようかなと思ってたけど微妙だなEveryone other than KimuTaku and Kou Shibasaki are horrible.
I was thinking of trying to watch it, but it's not looking too good.
- これは見ない半沢再放送でいいI won't watch this.
Why don't they just show reruns of Hanzawa?
- 役に合う演者を集めたっていうよりとりあえず今、人気がありそうなのをかき集めたって感じInstead of choosing actors who fit the role, it feels like they just gathered the seemingly popular ones and stuffed them into the cast.
- 半沢も壇蜜やＴＫＯのデブのような「はぁ？」なキャストいるけどなｗBut Hanzawa also had questionable castings like Mitsu Dan and that TKO fatso w
- まーたキャストだけの糞ドラマかAnother shi++y drama that prioritizes the cast?
- 人気がありそうな奴を集めておけば数字が取れるだろうという発想がもうダメだなプロデューサーが無能すぎるThe idea of gathering popular actors to try and get ratings isn't good anymore.
The producers are all so incompetent.
- 有名どころは木村と柴咲だけでいいから実力派揃えろよ半沢みたいにThey should've just settled for the popularity of Kimura and Shibasaki. They should've gone with the more talented actors for the supporting cast members, like Hanzawa.
- スポンサー馬鹿にされてるなThey're making fun of the sponsors
- こんなクラッシャーばかりのメンツでもキムタクが叩かれるんだよな…流石にこれは…And even with all these program crushers on board, KimuTaku will still be taking all the bashing...
But this time, it's...
- 安堂ロイド(死)(笑)Ando-Lloyd (dies) (LOL)
- 木村おわったとうとう大物が脇役を避け出したKimura seems to be done for with this.
Even the big ones are avoiding being second fiddle to him.
- 能年が蹴った役を大島が受けたのかｗｗｗｗSo Yuko Oshima accepted the role that Nounen turned down?
- 半沢の後とかマジで学芸会になるぞPutting this after Hanzawa will seriously make it look like a school play
- 能年が断ったソースあんのか？Is there a source saying that Nounen rejected the role?
- 周囲のキー局の同時間枠から10倍返し食らうこれが半沢直樹伝説ですわシリーズ化するらしいから、今後も半沢の後継番組は有名俳優が敬遠するTBS魔の時間枠へAnd then this drama will be getting a 10-fold payback from the other key networks on the same time slot.
This'll just make Hanzawa Naoki a legend.
I heard that they're turning it into a series, so I bet the popular actors will be turning down roles in whatever drama that will be coming after Hanzawa in the next season. This will turn into TBS' dreaded time slot.
- どうせアンドロイドが恋人を守るために死ぬストーリーだろ『僕の彼女はサイボーグ』でアンドロイドものは完結してるぞI'm guessing the android will be dying as he protects his lover.
Android-type stories have already been exhausted in Boku no kanojo wa Cyborg.
- 前田みたいに主役ねらわず主役の取りまき路線でやってくってのは正解だなMaeda was right in choosing to play a supporting role instead of aiming for the lead
- ｷﾑﾀｸで倍下降だな、良くて15％。KimuTaku will probably drop the ratings by half. This will probably be around 15% at best.
- 能年ちゃん断ってたのかGJ!!未来ある女優はこんなドラマには出ないNounen-chan rejected it?
Actresses with bright futures shouldn't be appearing in dramas like this.
- >木村さん演じる大学教授で天才物理学者この時点で缶コーヒー噴いて咳き込む> Kimura's character Reiji Matsushima (a university professor and genius physicist).
This alone made me spit out my coffee and cough so hard.
- キムタクが二役演じ分けられるとは思えないんだけど片方がアンドロイドならもこみちみたいな感じでごまかしはきくって判断かI don't think KimuTaku will be able to play 2 roles differently, but if the other one's an android then they might have thought that they could probably fake out some details if one of the roles is an android.
- ｷﾑﾀｸの妹に大島ってのも年離れすぎだろ？Isn't there too much of an age gap between Oshima and KimuTaku for her to be playing the younger sister?
- いかにも・・ってテレビの人選だな。視聴者が望んでる事は違うって半沢でハッキリしてると思うんだけどな。枠がいいし何故か視聴率は獲るんだろうけどなんだかなー。This is a cast selection that you could have surely predicted.
To think that Hanzawa's already made it clear that the viewers are looking for something else.
The time slot's good, and I think this will still get ratings, but still...
- アンドロイドなのに喋り方はマジでとか超～すげえとかちょ、待てよーとかAh, the android will be speaking phrases like, "Maji de!?" or "Cho- sugee" or "Cho, mateyo-", huh
