Kanjani8‘s Maruyama Ryuhei will be starring in Fuji TV’s “Yo nimo Kimyo na Monogatari” Spring 2013 SP. The said SP will feature 5 strange stories, one of which will have Maruyama as the lead. Maruyama will play a part time worker in “Sekiyu ga deta” when one day his pee turns to oil.
“It’s an extremely strange story but quite natural for me (laughs). The oil doesn’t really come out as a urine (laughs). I’m happy that I’m allowed to do such unique role while being in Johnny’s. When I received the script, I am pressured but I’m going to exert every effort to portray this role,” Maruyama commented.
Fellow Kanjani8 members also rejoiced for Maruyama’s “Yonimo” segment; Nishikido Ryo sent him an email with a message of encouragement along with Kanjani8 manager’s picture smiling widely and Yasuda Shota treated him for a meal to celebrate his appearance in Fuji TV special.
