佐藤健 -> HAHA!

Sato Takeru to starr in NTV's new drama "Q10".

Actor Takeru Sato (21) has landed his first starring role in a drama series. He will play a high school student in the NTV drama "Q10" this fall, using an original script by Izumi Kizara ("Nobuta wo Produce").

Sato plays Heita, an ordinary high school boy with a kind heart but no real interest in romance. His class is joined by a transfer student named Q10 (pronounced "kyu-to," the same as "cute"), who looks like a girl but is actually a robot. Together, the two end up causing trouble at school, and Heita even begins falling for Q10. A kiss scene between the two is planned.

NTV will start shooting the drama in early September in preparation for an October premiere. The series will air on Saturday nights at 9:00pm.

JAMOSA is back!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
J-urban artist JAMOSA will be making a long awaited return to the music scene. She will be releasing a new single titled "BOND~キズナ~" on October 6th, nearly two years since her last single "Zutto". Those hoping for a hot club banger will be disappointed because it's a rather slow tempo song, the b-side titled "GIRLFRIENS" will hopefully be the polar opposite!

the song sounds okay but i'm so sick of all these j-urban artists doing slow tempo omg. why must japan love ballads
