AKB48 to play yankees in TV Tokyo drama

Idol group AKB48 will star in a TV Tokyo drama series this winter. Titled "Majisuka Gakuen," the show was planned and written by AKB48 producer Yasushi Akimoto.

The drama will revolve around adolescent "yankees," or delinquents. Although all of AKB48's members are planned to appear on the show, the main character will be Atsuko Maeda (18), who was voted #1 by fans in the group's "senbatsu" election earlier this year. Maeda has already acted in multiple films and dramas, and was recently announced as a cast member in NHK's 2010 taiga drama "Ryomaden," playing a niece of protagonist Sakamoto Ryoma (Masaharu Fukuyama).

"Majisuka Gakuen" will air in TV Tokyo's "Drama 24" time slot (Friday nights at 12:12am). The show premieres on January 8. The official website has already opened.

They already have a song in that yankee style:

I think they'll do well. The girls looked pretty convincent in the few promo pictures I saw.

I think it's cute that it's called Majisuka Gakuen XD Also, if Masaharu Fukuyama is in it, count me in. It's like that guy never ages!

LOL I love how chicks with braun and don't take shit attitudes are "yankiis". I guess only because foreign chicks don't put up with the gropers and harassing dudes if they don't want it.

But, hey, yay for AKB! The army of pedobait lives on!
