Hiroshi Tamura's best-selling autobiography "Homeless Chugakusei" will have a sequel to its television adaptation. Last July, Fuji TV aired a drama special that starred new child actor Tatsuya Kuroki as Tamura's childhood self. The episode garnered ratings of 18.8% in the Kanto area and 26.0% in the Kansai region.

On April 12, the network will broadcast "Homeless Chugakusei 2," based on the book "Homeless Daigakusei" that was published by Tamura's older brother Kenichi this past October. The book relates the family's experiences from the perspective of Kenichi, who was a college student at the time.

Including Kuroki, the cast of the first special - including Kaho, Kei Tanaka, Takashi Naito, and Hiroko Yakushimaru - will reprise their roles. In addition, Mitsuki Tanimura is joining the cast as Kenichi's girlfriend.
