‘SPEC’ to spawn another movie and drama special next fall

20120126_SPEC_600px

On December 27th, it was finally made official that the popular ‘SPEC’ eries – starring Kase Ryo and Toda Erika will be spawning another movie named ‘SPEC~Close~’ n the fall of 2013. Moreover they announced that there is going to be another TV drama special titled ‘SPEC~Zero~’ round the same time.

‘SPEC’ is about the two special detectives Toma Saya (Toda) and Sebumi Takeru (Kase), who deal with various minor and large-scale cases that are related to people with SPEC (special abilities). Their unique personalities and the exciting main plot has turned the series, including the TV special and the movie, into a huge success.

After the release of the movie ‘SPEC~Ten~‘, there have been many rumors about a possible continuation or maybe even a completely new and third iteration in the actual ‘Keizoku‘ series. Many surveys showed that fans definitely want the series to continue and things seem to have been in set in motion when the first talks about ‘SPEC~Close~’ began appearing on the official Twitter of the popular TV drama ‘ATARU‘, which often featured cameos of the ‘SPEC’ protagonists.



In the concluding chapter of the series, Toma and Sebumi are going to face their strongest enemy that is plotting to destroy mankind. Of course it will also further explore the deep relationship between the two of them. Since it’s once again an original creation by director Tsutsumi Yukihiko himself, there are not yet many more details known about the finale.

However, the producers already confirmed even before the filming that this is definitely going to be the final chapter in the series. TBS producer Ueda Hiroki stated, “We are planning to create a worthy final chapter and no matter how successful it’s going to be, there won’t be a continuation after that.”

The filming for the movie will begin in February next year. Toda commented, “I’m very grateful that we’ve managed to reach the final chapter. I’ll work my hardest in order to make you all enjoy it from the bottom of your hearts.” Kase added, “Whether you like it or not, this is going to be the last chapter. Together with Toda, I’d like to use up all of my strength for this.”

As mentioned above, there is also going to be another TV drama special around fall 2013. The title ‘SPEC~Zero~’ already hints that this is basically going to become an ‘episode 0′ of the series, which is going to further explore the secret behind Toma’s left hand and her past. The filming for this special is already underway.

I'm so excited! I love this series, and the movie definitely left room for a sequel, lol.

There were multiple SPEC cameos in Ataru? I only noticed one. ^^; I haven't quite finished watching Ataru yet, though.

I haven't finished Ataru yet too. lol but there were. :D

I'm glad! SPEC was one of my favourite dramas, and I think the final movie will really help wrap up all of the loose ends.

kat_desu 27th-Dec-2012 03:27 am (UTC)
Shibata Jun and Toma Saaya had a little but important scene in SPEC~Rei manga so I hope they will include that in. :DD

I knew about the manga but I never read it. Damn, I should have checked if it was translated! DX

Thank you, will go read now XD
kat_desu 27th-Dec-2012 11:39 pm (UTC)
Only 2 chapters have been translated so far. Hopefully, they'll continue translating it.
No worries! :DDD

How the first movie been released on DVD yet?

Also, AWESOME. More spec, the better. It's funny how when I watched the original, literally, the next month they announced Spec xD
I hope the original actors cameo.
kat_desu 27th-Dec-2012 04:22 am (UTC)
Yup. The DVD has been released. :)
aoiblue_kun 30th-Dec-2012 09:27 am (UTC)

citrine047 27th-Dec-2012 07:51 am (UTC)

luna_rainbow 27th-Dec-2012 10:45 am (UTC)
Ever since someone cleverly picked up on the "ki-sho-ten-(ketsu)" naming of the episodes/movies, this has been long expected, but glad to see it confirmed!!
kat_desu 27th-Dec-2012 10:11 pm (UTC)
Yes. It's finally confirmed!
inachan89 27th-Dec-2012 01:11 pm (UTC)
Can't believe i've yet to watch SPEC,Kase Ryo and Erika Toda<3<3
kat_desu 27th-Dec-2012 10:12 pm (UTC)
watch it now! XD
anduril_narsil 27th-Dec-2012 02:17 pm (UTC)
Wait wait wait.

So it's not just a sequel to SPEC, but it will also serve as a sort-of sequel to Keizoku too?

Heck yeah!
kat_desu 27th-Dec-2012 10:13 pm (UTC)
sort of... Hopefully things will be clearer once more info comes out. XD
shunluv 27th-Dec-2012 02:43 pm (UTC)
such awesome news<3333333333
is Ninomae really gone?
i kinda wish he would still appear lol :P
Kamiki is so awesome in that role xD

and really hope Mukai character will appear again<3

Erika&Kase<333333
kat_desu 27th-Dec-2012 10:14 pm (UTC)
Ninomae will definitely be in the prequel but I really hope he'd be in the movie too. It feels incomplete without him in it. XD
I edited the post to include a Ninomae picture. :D

Edited at 2012-12-28 01:09 am (UTC)
shunluv 28th-Dec-2012 10:27 am (UTC)
yeah even if some people might be sick of him but seriously he is one of my fav villain lol :P
would be nice to see him even just a glimpse since it really is incomplete without him lol xD
rainbow_yarn 28th-Dec-2012 05:35 am (UTC)
I think Ninomae's really worn out his welcome. I liked his character, but he's done. Otherwise they're going to have to keep on, keep on doing him in. I got bored of him after SPEC-Sho. =/

That said, there's no way Mukai won't have a bigger role in the movie. They still need to explain exactly who he is...
izumi_ixa 27th-Dec-2012 03:00 pm (UTC)
Glad that we will have more SPEC! =D
Not watching ATARU, but probably do, because SPEC is great ^^
annhh 27th-Dec-2012 05:37 pm (UTC)
YES.

this is rare, to get what you want :D
kat_desu 27th-Dec-2012 10:15 pm (UTC)
IKR?! :D
rainbow_yarn 28th-Dec-2012 05:32 am (UTC)
I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU, KASETODA
rosesnwine88 29th-Dec-2012 07:39 am (UTC)

frothies 29th-Dec-2012 11:41 pm (UTC)
