The official website for Piple - I Have Started a Married Life with AI, a live-action TV drama adaptation of Mariru Harada's sci-fi comedy novel Piple, has announced that 22-year-old Canadian-Japanese actress Ayaka Wilson is cast as the protagonist Kenichi Kaburagi's human AI wife, Piple. She made her actress debut by playing the protagonist Paco in PACO and The Magical Book in 2008 and won the Japan Academy Film Prize's "Newcomer of the Year."
As reported, 34-year-old voice actor Yuki Kaji, best known as the voice of Eren Yeager in the Attack on Titan anime franchise, plays the protagonist who marries the AI wife. He previously voiced the character in the novel's web drama adaptation and reprises his role in the drama as well. This is his first starring role in a Japanese serial drama.
After failing a date with his longing senior at his company, Kenichi Kaburagi impulsively bought a bishoujo AI with a sexual intercourse function and named her "Piple". However, for some reason, she refused her activities on their wedding night. Kenichi visits the maker of Piple and meets Kaede Fukayama, a mysterious AI researcher with no empathy ability, and learns that there is a problem with Piple's initial setup. And unfortunately, it can't be reset. Instead, Kaede comes up with a surprising suggestion to Kenichi...!?
Piple - I Have Started a Married Life with AI is set to premiere on WOWOW on May 18, 2020.
The filming was already wrapped up on March 3. Kaji said on Twitter on the day, "We finished filming today! Anyway, it was fun!! It was the most important thing, after all. I made so much memories, I'm really moved. I felt happy during the time I was in the best filming locations! Please look forward to the broadcasting from May!!"
