NTV has revealed that its next "Koi no Karasawagi" ("Much Ado About Love") drama special will air on September 25. Based on the variety show of that name, this will be the sixth in a series of yearly specials that started in 2004.
Like the previous specials, "Koi no Karasawagi: Love Stories VI" will consist of three stories. The first is "Rival no Onna," starring Yu Yamada (25) as an unsuccessful entertainer who fights with a friend over a handsome actor.
In the second story, titled "Kyouso to Yobareta Onna," Yu Kashii (22) plays a nail stylist who mistakenly believes that the stares she receives are due to her beautiful face, rather than her oversized body. Using special costuming and makeup, her character will appear to weigh about 100 kilograms.
The last story, "Tsukusu Onna," stars Mitsuki Tanimura (19) as a woman who devotes herself to an ace baseball pitcher that has fallen into a slump.
