Hey guys! To those who read Yuu Watase's Zettai Kareshi or Absolute Boyfriend here's a good news:

Drama based on comedy manga from Fushigi Yuugi creator to start in April of this year
<source: www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-02-21/yuu-watase-absolute-boyfriend-adapted-for-live-action >
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

23-year-old Mokomichi Hayami (Densha Otoko, Gokusen live-action dramas) will star as the "ikemen (handsome) lover robot" in Absolute Boyfriend, the drama adaptation of Yuu Watase's romantic comedy manga that will premiere on Japan's Fuji TV on April 8. Watase created the popular Fushigi Yuugi and Ceres: Celestial Legend romance manga, both of which were adapted into anime. 22-year-old Saki Aibu (Doraemon: Nobita no Shin Makai Daibōken - Shichinin no Mahōtsukai) will play the young office lady who accidentally receives Night Tenjō, the latest model of "lover robots." 23-year-old Hiro Mizushima (Hana Zakari No Kimitachi E: Ikemen Paradise, Lovely Complex) will play the human "rival" to Night Tenjō.

Shogakukan originally published the manga in Shojo Comic magazine, and the six compiled volumes have sold 1.65 million copies in Japan. Viz Media serialized the manga in Shojo Beat magazine from its premiere issue in 2005 until the manga's ending last year.

Mokomichi HAYAMI as Night Tenjo (my gosh!!)


Saki Aibu as Riiko Izawa


and Hiro Mizushima as Soshi Asamot(kyaa!!!)




Can't wait...^_^

yeah.. i agree with you.. riiko isn't as lovely as how she is in the manga but i guess soshi is fine..^_^
and yeah, i was actually waiting for an anime version of it but then again, a live action is better than nothing, right?

This is great but..
I hope that actor will wear Glasses to be Soshi... and the actress who plays Riiko looks a bit old. >_<;;

Overall, i'm happy !!
