Ikuta Toma and Oguri Shun in a New Drama after 8 Yrs

(c)ogurin-tomasu

A must-see drama next year! Hoping that MatsuJun will have time to guest in his BFF’s drama.

As reported,

It was announced that Ikuta Toma and Oguri Shun will star in TBS drama, “Ouroboros“, to start January next year. It had been 8 years since the two have worked together since “HanaKimi” last 2007.

“Ouroboros” is a live adaptation from the manga of the same title by Kanzaki Yuuya. It tells the story of two orphaned boys who promised to seek revenge for their “sensei” who was murdered. Fifteen years later, one became a police detective while the other is a yakuza. Together, they worked behind-the-scenes with means of extracting revenge.

Ikuta will play the role of Ikuo Ryuuzaki, a dull police detective but once his switch is turned-on, he can crush evil with his overwhelming fighting ability giving him 100% success rate in making arrest. Oguri will play Danno Tatsuya, a yakuza, who works to rise within the underworld with his outstanding looks and brain.

The drama has been planned since the manga became serialized in 2009, but due to conflicting schedules of the two actors, it hasn’t been pushed through until now. Good friends in real life, the two actors are reportedly fired-up to work together as filming will start by the end of November. Ikuta, who have read the original, said that Oguri is just suited to play Tatsuya as he for Ikuo. Oguri is also looking-forward to work again with Ikuta as he wants to be surprised on how much Ikuta have grown [as an actor?].

Ouroboros” will air January next year for TBS winter drama line-up.

  3. I am so excited for this…hehehe…as if that’s new for me…hehehe..anything that concerns Oguri Shun, one of my ichiban, and my favorite J-boys excite me always. And knowing that he will be paired with Ikuta Toma again in a series again make me so happy. It’s been so long since I’ve watched them together in HanaKimi and Hana Yori Dango.

    So this is great news. But January is still a long way to go…haizzz…half a year away…:(
