Yankee-kun to Megane-chan

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

This spring, TBS brings you the high school drama 'Yankee-kun to Megane-chan' on Friday nights, led by a rogue yankee youth and a girl in glasses who's an airhead. The original work from Weekly Shonen Magazine is popular among both men and women.

The main protagonist is Shinagawa Daichi, the yankee youth. In the same class as him is the class representative Adachi Hana, who at first glance, seems like a normal and diligent girl in glasses. Embroiled in various situations, this story of young lives revolves around the importance of friendship, an enjoyable school life and ultimately the meaning of one's existence.

Playing the lead role is popular actor Narimiya Hiroki. He brings a presence to the roles that he take, including the recently aired 'Bloody Monday'. This time as a lonesome yankee, he gets into quarrels for the sake of his comrades. Along the way, Shinagawa Daichi meets unique heroine Adachi Hana, played by the competent Naka Riisa.

The characters are yankees, airheads and those who like to play truant, each one burdened with problems, but, at the root of it all is that they are good high school students. As their stories unfold in the comedic campus, current teenagers, as well as their parents, those struggling with their social life and those in their 20s and 30s will enjoy this comedy.

There will be fights, jokes, romance and empathy. The drama hopes to convey various emotions which are universal to everyone, "It's wonderful that people are connected to one another." Through Shinagawa Daichi's character, we hope that the drama will be an encouragement to your own lives.
