This keeps getting better and better. I kind of hoped for Namikawa Daisuke or Nakamura Yuuichi for Naoto, but OnoD is fine as well. (Nobody can match Toyokawa Etsushi anyway, although I suppose this is kind of a reboot so unlike the previous manga adaptations and the terrible Genesis anime they're not trying to use the actors as models.) And the rest of the cast is fine, too, Shimazaki Nobunaga should be a great Naoya. I've read the first chapter of the manga, and it's... well, it's certainly a Night Head adaptation, I wonder how the anime will handle the story.

I continue to be so here for this.

Why not! It's the 29th anniversary of the show, it's as good a reason as any. But also, this is more of a reboot than a straight adaptation, what with the new characters and all, also going by the first chapter of the manga and the trailer the story is going to be fairly different.

I wonder if they'll re-release the drama and the movie... I haven't been able to watch the movie because it's out of print, but since the novelization has been re-released digitally, perhaps the drama and a movie will get a "hey, remember the '90s? those were some low-budget but fun times, weren't they" type of re-release.

And how does that make you feel? Please share.

(Also, this is kind of hilarious knowing what the original TV drama is like...)

The first anime was kinda like that.

How do I feel huh ? Pretty bad I guess, but I will never know since I will just skip it.

Haha, well, thanks for sharing I guess. But if the previous anime already made you feel uncomfortable then don't feel bad, you'd be super uncomfortable with all the other installments in the franchise, starting with the source material itself.

From your previous post I thought you meant the original was not BL oriented, but I guess my first impression is correct, it will be really fujoshi oriented.
