Anticipated jdrama: Sennyuu Tantei Tokage with Matsuda Shota
Any Matsuda Shota fans out there? You are in luck because he is starring in a new jdrama that is coming out on April 18th!
At first the synopsis of this drama sounds really stale. It is about an ex-police detective named Tokage that begins working as a private detective, but he is so brilliant that the police wants him back. Sounds like your typical detective jdrama that, unfortunately, usually ends up being really cheesy and unrealistic. However the title also means “Undercover Agent Tokage” so I am wondering if Tokage will actually go undercover? That would be way more interesting. AND I found out that the lead is Matsuda Shota! That got me interested enough to check out the teasers for the drama, and I was quite surprised. They are actually pretty upbeat and quirky. I was also surprised to find that the heroine will be played by Renbutsu Misako–she was the lead actress in Nanase Futatabi but has not had any big lead roles since then.
It seems like Matsuda Shota’s character’s catch line will be “I’m not interested.” It sounds way funnier in the teasers, like when Renbutsu Misako’s character is trying to introduce herself, but he simply answers “I’M NOT INTERESTED” and then shuts the curtains in her face. AHAHA. Anyways I’m not expecting a lot from this drama, but I do dare to hope that just maybe it will turn out to be something worth watching. (Yeah I am having withdrawals now that Mahoro Ekimae Bangaichi, xxxHOLic, AND Saikou no Rikon are OVER.)
