From 9.00 p.m. Tuesdays, October 2010

Take Seiji (Ninomiya Kazunari) is a 25-year-old freeter with no dreams, savings and is good-for-nothing. He had failed his entrance exams the first time and entered a third-rate university a year later. After graduation, he found work at a mid-size components company, but could not become accustomed to the corporate culture and left the company in three months. Reemployment did not go his way, so he took a part-time job for the time being. However, when interpersonal relationship become a little bit bothersome, he would immediately quit and move to another part-time job. As a result, he is always fighting with his father, Seiichi (Takenaka Naoto). He retreats into his own room because he hates seeing his father. Then one day, when he is both out of work and savings, he learns that his mother, Sumiko (Asano Atsuko), is suffering from depression, and is shocked.

Harsh reality surges in … Is he to be the family’s breadwinner now? Thinking he is good-for-nothing and blaming himself for not being able to take care of even food expenses, Seiji takes up higher-paying part-time manual labour at a civil engineering site where he encounters the vivacious, cheerful Chiba Manami (Karina) and his superiors. At first, he has a bias against his job, regarding it only as a temporary position, and keeps his distance from the people at the work place. But his exchanges with his colleagues and Manami, who live for civil engineering, gradually deepen. In the midst of this he is reminded of the meaning of “life” and “work, and finds hope to revive his family.

Ninomiya Kazunari returns for “Freeter” drama special

Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari (28) will reprise his role as a freeter for a special episode of the drama series “Freeter, Ie wo Kau.” The original show aired on Fuji TV during fall of last year and averaged a 17.1% rating.

“Freeter, Ie wo Kau” is an adaptation of a novel by Arikawa Hiro. The story revolves around the growth of an unambitious part-timer named Seiji (Ninomiya) who becomes driven to work towards buying a house for the sake of his family. Karina (27) played the part of Manami, the heroine and love interest whom Seiji meets through the construction company he works for.

At the end of the drama series, Seiji successfully buys a home. The special episode will take place a year later, and it will focus on the conclusion of the love story between Seiji and Manami, who have been leading separate lives due to their work.

The special episode will bring back the same production team as the original series, who also worked on the recent hit series “Marumo no Okite” (starring Ashida Mana).

The episode will air this fall, but the exact broadcast date and time have not been announced.
