It has been announced that actress Kashii Yu will star in a new TBS psycho thriller drama titled ‘Somato Kabushiki Gaisha‘ which will begin airing on July 16th. This will mark her first comeback since after her childbirth and childcare leave. Kashii officially married to actor Odagiri Joe back in February 2008, and gave birth on February 2011.
Kashii stated “This will be my first drama in a while, so I’m nervous, but I’m also really looking forward it. Because it will be my first lead role in a drama series, I feel pressure, but I want to try my best.” and added “I hope the viewer will enjoy this psycho thriller drama and tremble with fear in front of the TV as if it were testing your courage.”
‘Somato’ has come to be used in the words to describe the flashback of one’s lifetime memories during a near death experience. The story will revolve around a mysterious place called ‘Somato Kabushiki Gaisha (Somato Inc.)’. It’s a place where people can see a visual representation of recordings recorded over the course of their life in the form of DVD’s. A few people stray into Somato Inc. by accident and the guide of the place Kaminuma (Kashii) allows these people to look back on their life. The number of DVD’s given to the person is dependant on their age (IE: 20 DVD’s if the age is 20). The DVD’s are from the viewpoints or perspectives of other people, so the people who watch the DVD’s may learn many shocking facts about themselves that they never knew about nor realized.
Kashii said her character Kaminuma is very mysterious. Her age is unknown and her background is unexplained, no one knows if she is a human being, an angel, or the devil.
‘Somato Kabushiki Gaisha’ will begin airing on July 16th, every Monday at 00:20am.
