Kaibutsu-kun to Become a Movie??~
The first time Kaibutsu-kun was at the preview screening, it had received negative reviews. But as the show continues covering a lot of family problems, it gathered attention from many families who watched together. The first episode had a high rating of 17.5%, but by the 7th episode, it's average rating dropped to 13.9%. Before, 15% would be considered the passing rating, however this time, it seems 13% is comforted enough that the film has already been decided by this result. With Arashi's current popularity, many fans may watch it at the theatres as well. Matsumoto Jun will be making a cameo appearance in the drama's last episode, as Kaibutsu-kun's butler, so there is a possibility chance that other group members may appear in the movie as well. The film's storyline will be original and it is planned to be released next summer with a large international location shooting. Also, during the movie's release, Kaibutsu-kun merchandise are planned to go on sale. The film version of the popular drama series, Hana Yori Dango Final, starring Matsumoto in 2008, was a box office hit record of 77.5 billion yen. Will Kaibutsu-kun be able to approach this popularity?
