46 years ago Minoru Kurihara (Tatsuya Fujiwara) went to the mountains to take pictures, but never returned. Fast forward to the present and he is discovered perfectly preserved in ice. He then miraculously wakes up.

The head of the Kurihara household is now Norihiko Kurihara (Katsumi Takahashi), who is Minoru's son and 52 years old. Their is also Minoru's grandson Kensuke (Shunsuke Daito) and granddaughter Mai (Kana Kurashina). Their family is set for upheaval as their grandfather (who still looks 25, but is now 71) returns to their home.

At first Minoru can't act comfortably around his family, but as Minoru gets used to the change of times, their family comes around ...

Tatsuya Fujiwara becomes "25-year-old grandfather"

Actor Tatsuya Fujiwara (28) is taking on his first role in a TV comedy series, titled "Ojiichan wa 25 Sai." The show is being directed by Yasuo Baba, whose past works include the films "Watashi wo Ski Ni Tsuretette" and "Bubble e Go!! Time Machine wa Drum Shiki."

Fujiwara stars as a man who was in an accident on a snowy mountain 46 years ago. His frozen body is discovered in the present day, and despite being actually 71 years old, he has the appearance and personality of a 25-year-old. He also learns that at his old home in Oshiage, Tokyo, his son (played by Katsumi Takahashi) is now 52 years old and is raising two children of his own - a 25-year-old son (Shunsuke Daito) and a 20-year-old daughter (Kana Kurashina).

Naturally, Fujiwara's character knows nothing about the past 46 years, so things such as mobile phones and concepts such as hikikomori are completely new to him.

The series will have a short run on TBS, starting on November 15 and ending on November 25. For those two weeks, it will air on Mondays through Thursdays at 11:50pm, for a total of 8 half-hour episodes.


Definitely going to watch this!
