On February 29th, it was announced that six members from Johnny’s Jr. and six of AKB48 members will be starring in NTV’s late night drama, “Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou (Private Bakaleya High School)”, which will start its broadcast on April 14th (every Saturday, 12:50 A.M).

This drama will mark the first project for Johnny’s Jr. members and girls of AKB48 to co-star in a same drama. In regards to AKB48, Johnny’s Jr. member Morimoto Shintaro (14) stated, “They are a national idol. That’s amazing.” AKB48’s Shimazaki Haruka (17) then commented, “Since we would not usually co-star with a Johnny’s Jr., I can feel the weight of this project,” and showed her nervousness at this stage.

AKB48’s own producer Akimoto Yasushi (55) has created his own original, youthful story for this project with a merger of a delinquent high school and rich girl’s high school as a setting.

Morimoto, who will play the leader of these high school delinquents, revealed, “Although the real me would settle everything through talking, I am interested in learning how a real fight goes down.” Shimazaki added, “Although I am a clumsy person, I want to show how capable I can be on-screen,” and declared her aspirations through her role as a student council president.

Aside from Morimoto and Shimazaki, Johnny’s Jr. members Matsumura Hokuto, Kyomoto Taiga, Tanaka Juri, Lewis Jesse, Kochi Yugo and AKB48’s Oba Mina, Nagao Mariya, Kobayashi Marina, Shimada Haruka and Nakamura Mariko will also be part of this upcoming drama.

finished watching 9 episodes. wondering if there were any more?

i kinda liked this show. the whole yankee thing reminded me of Gokusen (and a whole lot of other j-dramas regarding that) but it was interesting to see the result of them combining with Cattleya Academy (2nd branch). i must say, Shohei was the most hilarious imo. idk how that guy even ended up at Bakada High though :\

anyway, i'll be waiting for more episodes AND the film.
