The drama stars SMAP's Kimura Takuya as a genius physicist named 'Matsushima Reiji' and a mysterious android from the future. It will also star actress Shibasaki Kou as Reiji's fiancee 'Ando Asahi'.

Oshima will play 'Matsushima Nanase', Reiji's younger sister who is also a physicist and associate professor. She expressed, "I am very honored and happy to co-star with Kimura-san and Shibasaki-san." Although she has an older brother herself, she commented, "I think this will be the first and last time in my life that I will have a handsome, genius older brother, so I want to cherish this opportunity."

Aside from Oshima, it was also revealed that Kiritani Kenta, Honda Tsubasa, Yamaguchi Sayaka, Johnny's Jr.'s Jesse, Yamamoto Mizuki, Hiraoka Yuta, Natori Yuko, and Endo Kenichi have been added to the cast.

Honda, who will play an android from the future named 'Sapuri', stated, "Since this is my first android role, I am both excited and nervous. I hope to express Sapuri in my own way."

Yamamoto will play 'Kuriyama Kaoru', Reiji's lab assistant. "For a long time, I've loved dramas with unique worldviews like 'SPEC' and 'ATARU', so I'm very happy that I get to be a part of this drama," she said.

The drama's concept was provided by Anno Hideaki and Tsurumaki Kazuya, who are known for the popular anime series 'Neon Genesis Evangelion'. The script is written by Nishiogi Yumie, who was in charge of 'SPEC' and 'Keizoku'.

'Ando Lloyd ~A.I. knows LOVE?~' will air on TBS' "Nichiyou Gekijou" time slot starting in October.

Jesse's been getting tons of drama roles lately.

Wow, they sure have an all-star team for concept and writing, there, though. O_O

I'm just glad Honda Tsubasa isn't a main here or else I would totally not be interested.
Totally looking forward to the plot though since they've got some great script writers
