Yaaaaay! Am I the only one excited? Probably. Details below the cut.
And here’s what’s available so far:
Yamada will be played by Yusuke Yamamoto, whom you may know from Kamen Rider: Kabuto (a.k.a. the best Kamen Rider ever) or the GTO TV series. Have some pictures.
I think he’ll nail the part.
For Shiraishi, we have Mariya Nishiuchi. She hasn’t done much that I know of, just some old lady from the latest One Piece movie. She was also in GTO apparently. Some pictures of her.
It bugs me that they may keep her brown hair, but who knows. There’s also an official site for the TV series, and to quote:
The appeal of this series is its mold-breaking use of kisses between boys and girls as the central plot device, as well as the suspense of the unfolding mysteries of the seven witches. Also, in keeping with the wonderful balance of friendship and love in this youth comedy, there will be TV-original characters that will not appear in the original story. Whether you’re a fan of the original or just tuning in, you’ll be sure to enjoy this light, upbeat, and very different show. The name of the game is “kissing”. Be sure to tune in!
Yamada and the Seven Witches begins airing on Saturday, August 10th at 11:10 pm on Fuji Television. Each episode will be approximately 45 minutes.
