What You Need to Know:
- What with yesterday's announcement about Good Morning Call getting a drama adaptation, it seems like many older manga are skipping the anime phase and heading straight into real life.
- One manga that has already done this is Mars, a shoujo manga serialised in Kodansha's Friend Extra magazine from 1996 to 2000.
- For those who don't know, the story follows two high school students, plain girl Kira Aso and super-popular Rei Kashino. After meeting by chance one day in the spring holidays, they are reunited in the second year of school. Both of them have their own issues, but it's exactly that that brings them together. But it won't be plain sailing for these two as they constantly run into trouble!
- The drama started airing just a couple of days ago in Japan, but something in particular has had Japanese fans going wild - the fact that Kis-My-Ft2 member Taisuke Fujigaya plays the part of Rei!
- We can only hope that this drama will eventually be released overseas - but until then, make sure to check out the visual of Taisuke as Rei below!
I hadn't heard of this drama until everyone started kicking up a fuss about that guy!
Is it bad that I want to watch it now?
