As mentioned in the previous article, two networks announced new dramas starring a member from Arashi. The other network is NTV, who announced a new drama called ‘Mikeneko Holmes no Suiri‘, starring Aiba Masaki as the protagonist.

‘Mikeneko Holmes no Suiri’ is based on a popular ‘Mikeneko Holmes‘ mystery novel series by Akagawa Jiro. It tells the story of ‘Katayama Yoshitaro’ (Aiba) who became a detective in order to comply with the dying wish of his father who was a famous detective himself. Katayama is currently with MPD’s First Investigation Division, although he’s not cut out to be a detective at all. He not only can’t see blood, but he’s also terribly afraid of heights, women, and ghosts. One day, he meets a cat with three colors of fur (‘mikeneko’) who goes by the name of ‘Holmes’. This cat can understand humans and it also possesses brilliant reasoning skills. The two of them form a team and together they manage to solve various difficult cases.

This role is going to mark Aiba’s first drama starring role on NTV and it’s going to be a funny one according to the producers. We are up for many verbal quarrels between the protagonist and the cat, and judging by his character, the protagonist is most probably going to come out as the loser more than just a few times.

Akagawa commented, “I’m looking forward to see how the chemistry is going to be between Aiba, from this generation’s leading group Arashi, and Mikeneko Holmes.

Aiba himself said, “I’m very nervous, since the original is loved by so many people, but I’m also looking forward to the drama a lot. I hope I can find the best balance between the comical parts and the serious parts.

NTV is going to air ‘Mikeneko Holmes no Suiri’ every Saturday at 9:00 pm.

Two networks have just announced a new drama for the upcoming season and they both will be starring a member from the popular group Arashi. One of the networks is Fuji TV, who finally lifted the secret about their next Monday drama. It’s title is going to be ‘Kagi no Kakatta Heya‘ and will star Ohno Satoshi as the protagonist.

‘Kagi no Kakatta Heya’ is based on a mystery novel by Kishi Yuusuke. It tells the story of an employee of a major security firm (Ohno), who is solving the mysteries related to cases that happened behind closed doors. His job is to find out how the perpetrator entered the locked room and how he managed to leave it under such circumstances. He’s the best fit for the job, because he’s personally obsessed with keys and locks and even goes as far as claiming that ‘there are no locks that cannot be broken’. At first glimpse he looks like a calm and collected guy, but in the heat of solving the mystery behind a locked room he’s burning with an incredible tenacity. He’s an unconventional hero who is helping with cases one request after another.

For Ohno this is not only going to be his first Monday drama starring role, but also his first starring role on Fuji TV in general. He’s going to receive the baton from fellow Arashi member Matsumoto Jun, who is starring in this season’s Monday drama ‘Lucky Seven‘.

He commented, “It’s been a while since my last role as a human being. You’ll meet me behind closed doors!

‘Kagi no Kakatta Heya’ is going to air every Monday at 9:00 pm.

Couldn't you count RnK as Nino being a tv detective? He did solve a murder in it.
a_cheshire_grin 22nd-Feb-2012 12:26 am (UTC)
Mhm, I guess, but he was not really a detective in "Ryusei no Kizuna", he was just trying to figure out what happened to his parents.

The title fits perfectly! XD
It was actually the first thing I was thinking, when I heard about Riida's and Aiba's new dramas! ^.^

I'm looking forward to the new dramas, especially Riida's because I LOVE his acting and his role sounds very interesting this time, even a bit Maouish! XD
asaphira_sachi 22nd-Feb-2012 12:28 am (UTC)
Hehe seems like his character is actually kinda nerdy. Narcissistic "defender of crime" apparently LOL

I still hope that two (or more) Arashi-members will play in a drama together one day (not movie, drama!). I think that would be soooo awesome!! *____*
