Yanagihara Kanako to play Yamapi’s girlfriend in her first heroine role!

Comedian Yanagihara Kanako has been granted her first heroine role in drama “MONSTERS” (Sun 9:00PM) to premiere on October 21st, detective
drama that features, co-starring for the first time, SMAP’s Katori Shingo and Yamashita Tomohisa. When filming a dating scene with Yamashita, Yanagihara said “since the role was also addressed to different actresses seniors at the end it turned out to be me, I’m just glad is not a prank” with a tone of relief.

It was reported by the producers that Yanagihara thought it was a prank when she heard the news. Yamashita had this to say, ”we’re almost the same age so it was easy to establish conversation and get along well. Yanagihara-san is bright and wonderful, though this is the first time we meet, I think she’s really cute so I’m looking forward to filming together”.
When asked about a kiss scene for the two, Yamashita said “I’mlooking forward to find out what kind of lips she has!”, in a display of his “EroP” character.

I'm glad for Kanako, I hope they don't mess her character or anything for comedic purposes. And Yamapi needs to stop with his EroP foolishness. It's more laughable than anything else.

So cool! She's super cute too. There should be more chubby heroines. I'm so tired of chubby characters being portrayed as evil or stupid :/

And why do I feel she'll be a comical relief character. I wish it weren't, but I doubt Japanese TV (or for that matter any other Asian TV) are ready to give a serious leading role to a woman who doesn't comply with their standards of beauty

Might I direct to "Buso no Hitomi ni Koisuru", it's from '06, I think, and has Inagaki Goro and Murakami Tomoko from Mori-San-Chuu.

It's based on the real-life relationship of Producer Suzuki Osamu and Mori-San-Chuu's Oshima Miyuki.

It's really cute and sweet and while there is humor, it's never based on the relationship between the two.

Didn't even want to watch this drama till now.

She is ADORABLE, and I really hope she won't be made into comedic relief.
