Innocent Love – [イノセント・ラヴ]

So, Horikita Maki’s landed herself another starring role in the new drama, Innocent Love. I knew her from Hanazakari no Kimi Tachie, Kurosagi and Nobuta wo Produce, where she showed us her ability to act as many different characters but still with the same charm.

This drama falls into the category of tragedorama (j-drama tragedies), probably the first tragedorama I’ve seen her act in. Hana Kimi and Nobuta were both comedorama (j-drama comedies): light-hearted, silly entertainment, but this, it’s something new for Maki.

Well, do you think this drama will hit Japan (and indeed, the world of asian drama addicts)?

It’s airing on Fuji TV in the prime time spot of Monday 9. To those who aren’t familiar with this, the Monday 9 spot often hosts the most anticipated and watched drama of the season. It’s often a very popular drama and usually, it falls into the romance category. To prove it’s worth: Proposal Daisakusen, CHANGE, Nodame Cantible and Galileo were all aired in this spot.

An arson took it all away from Akiyama Kanon seven years ago. Her parents died in that fire, her brother was arrested as the prime suspect and her carefree life disappeared from that instant. She was shunned by the town as the sister of a murderer, yet she believes in her brother’s innocence and often pays him visits with words of encouragement. As life gets harder when nobody is willing to give her a job, Kanon decides to try her luck in the city and there she meets the man of her destiny…

For Horikita Maki fans, I’m sure they’ll be waiting for this in anticipation.
