Nishikido Ryo Time Slips as a Samurai Teacher in New Drama

After playing a teacher with regrets in “Gomen ne Seishun“, Kanjani8‘s Nishikido Ryo is back to play another teacher role in this time slip drama, “Samurai Sensei“.

In “Samurai Sensei”, Nishikido plays the role of Takechi Hanpeita, a samurai during the later years of Tokugawa era, who time slipped 150 yrs in present-day Japan and became a cram school teacher. Takechi Hanpeita is a known noble patriot and advocate of “sonno-joi movement” (lit. revere the emperor, expel the barbarians) and in the modern times, he will be faced with different problems in the rural village where he ended-up and he will try to solve those problems that only a samurai can do.

“Samurai Sensei” will be Nishikido’s comeback drama in TV Asahi‘s late night timeslot. His last drama for the said time slot was in 2011 with “Inu o Kau to Iu Koto“. Also, this is the 2nd time that Nishikido will be playing a time-slipping samurai after “Chonmage Purin” movie back in 2010. Looking back at Ryo’s 2010 movie, I wonder if they also recycled the costume.
