Yes I am back at long last!!
Kimura Takuya (Engine) plays Asakura Keita
Fukatsu Eri (Saiyuuki, Narito Rikon, Odoru Daisousasen) as Miyama Rika
Abe Hiroshi (Kekkon Dekinai Otoko, Dragon Zakura) as Nirasawa Katsutoshi
Kato Rosa (Jotei) as Miyamoto Hikari
"The story begins with the deaths of ruling party's Fukuoka legislator and his eldest son, his heir apparent, in an accident. It is decided that a by-election will be held, and Kanbayashi Masaichi, the leader of the ruling party, and secretary Miyama Rika conceive the idea of fielding the second son, Asakura Keita, who had been renounced by his father." Taken from D-Addicts Wiki.
Plucked from a easy going life and thrust in to the final week of a local election Asakura Keita, who is an unwilling candidate has to hit the ground running in this high tempo, high speed political drama.
Eri chan is back after her world famous stint as the monk in Saiyuuki (Journey to the West) and is pale and energetic as ever! She plays the secretary for the party's leader and is at the helm of the election campaign. While Abe Hiroshi puts completes the outing with a boot camp feel (Dragon Zakura all over again?) to add to the tension.
Looks good, and well scripted and the dialogs are fast and fluid, about time we had a good drama for the current season!
Special mention for Kato Rosa (previously in Jotei) who is very cute and fit in well.
