I've only watched snippets of Naku na Hara-chan although from what I've seen is reminding me of why I used to love Tomoya (and TOKIO). I used to love Tomoya's dramas (Mukodono, Yanpapa, etc). ;_; Maru's part hasn't really caught my attention although it appears that it's filmed in Miura (which is where the train line I live on goes) so I thought that was neat. Speaking of which, Yakou Kanransha apparently takes place in Yokohama, lol. It's funny how Yokohama is so highly valued in Japan as such a wonderful place. After living in Yokohama for several years, I'm ready to move away!
Okay, but back on topic...apparently Ryo's going to be in a movie Dakishimetai (I want to hold you) with Keiko Kitagawa (YES! Finally an actress I like!!) and it'll open in 2014.
