Okada Masaki to star in “Mirai Nikki” drama adaptation



In April, Fuji TV is bringing back its Saturday night drama time slot (11:10pm-11:55pm). The first new show will be an adaptation of Esuno Sakae’s popular manga “Mirai Nikki” (“Future Diary”), titled “Mirai Nikki -ANOTHER:WORLD-.” Actor Okada Masaki (22) will star.

“Mirai Nikki” was serialized in Weekly Shonen Ace from 2006 to 2011. It was released in 12 tankoubon volumes, which have had more than 4 million copies printed. The story was also turned into a video game in 2010, an anime series in 2011, and a novel earlier this month.

The drama will use an original story that differs from the manga, revolving around 12 people who obtain a “future diary,” which allows them write down “predictions” of the future that will come true. However, they are all part of a game of survival, in which they must use their diaries to try to kill each other and be the last one remaining, earning a place on the “God’s seat.”

Okada plays Hoshino Arata, a lazy college student who doesn’t believe in spending effort or working toward the future. One day, he gets a diary (the “future diary”) on his mobile phone, and he becomes involved in the game of survival.

The screenplay is being written by Watanabe Yusuke, who worked on the “20th Century Boys” and “GANTZ” movies.

Additional cast members and details will be revealed at a later date. Broadcast is scheduled to start in April.

Fuji TV to revive old Saturday drama time slot with new drama starring Okada Masaki



On February 16th, Fuji TV announced that they are going to revive their drama time slot on Saturday night, which already spawned many incredible series, such as ‘LIFE‘, ‘SP‘, and ‘LIAR GAME‘. The first drama to revive the time slot is titled, ‘Mirai Nikki -Another:World-‘ and is going to star young actor Okada Masaki.

The said drama time slot at 11:10 pm on Saturday had been quite popular since April of 2007 and recoded viewer ratings as high as 17.4% ('LIFE', starring Kitano Kii). In May of 2011 Fuji TV decided to give the time slot to the variety show 'Picaru no Teiri', but with the show ending next month, Fuji TV decided to fill that time slot with dramas once again. The target audience for this revived time slot will be young people between their late teens and the age of forty.

'Mirai Nikki -Another:World-' is based on a very popular manga of the same name, which is also currently being adapted into a TV anime series. The manga is about various young people, who are forced to participate in a survival game in which they obtain a special diary. In this diary they get to write down and predict events that are going to happen within the next 90 days. All the things written down in the diary become true, but the rules say that only one of the contestants can survive this game. The drama is going to feature an original character, 'Hoshino Arata' (Okada), but the premise should remain the same.

In 2009, Okada made his starring drama debut in 'Otomen', which also was a Saturday drama of Fuji TV. Therefore it has a special meaning for him to return to this time slot.

Fuji TV's producer stated, "We think that Okada has more than enough expressive power to portray the difficult role of an ordinary young man who gets dragged into an unimaginable situation, in which he has to bear getting toyed with and has to face his own fate."

Okada himself commented, "I hope we can turn it into such an exciting drama that people will be really anxious to find out what's going to happen in the next episode."

As it was already mentioned, Fuji TV is going to air 'Mirai Nikki -Another:World-' every Saturday at 11:10 pm.

Wow, I'm surprised they decided to make a drama adaption for Mirai Nikki. The anime is good but I quite doubtful how the actress (whoever maybe casted) will portray the role of Gasai Yuno. Yuno is a difficult character to act, the expressions of being crazy and totally in love at the same time is not easy to pull off. So I'm a bit iffy at the moment whether to pick this drama up or not. On a side note, Okada Masaki actually looks/resembles the anime version of Amano Yukiteru.
