DBoys to conquer the drama world

6 members of acting troupe D-BOYS (and its affiliated unit D2) will star in a new TV Tokyo drama series called “D×TOWN,” it has been announced. The series will consist of 6 stories, each starring a different member and each directed by a veteran or up-and-coming movie director. Each of the stories is scheduled to last one month long, so TV Tokyo will broadcast the show from the start of April until the end of September.

The stories will each have the same theme of a “town.” The first, titled “Spiders Now,” will be a youthful tale set in Kokura in Kitakyushu. Igarashi Shunji will play a member of an amateur band called Spiders From Earth. Aoyama Shinji (“Eureka,” “Sad Vacation”) will direct.

The second, titled “Taiyou wa Matte Kurenai,” will be set in Yokosuka, starring Suzuki Hiroki. Maeda Koji (“Konzen Tokkyuu”) will direct.

have zukkii and araki declared their love for each other yet, jw~~

on a more serious note, i will forever hate watanabe entertainment for cockblocking international fans from the boys' blogs. i was already kind of falling out of tenimyu/d-boys fandom at the time and that move pretty much cemented it.

They have sort of lifted the curtain on the blogs. We can all see the very latest post from each D-BOY. You just have to check regularly. As soon as they post again, the old one is archived to mobile-only.
