Voice actress plays former star and mentor to AKB48's Rino Sashihara

The Japanese voice actress Aya Hirano (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Fairy Tail, Lucky Star) will star in the live-action television series Muse no Kagami (Muse's Mirror). The AKB48 pop group member Rino Sashihara will also perform a lead role in the late-night drama.

The series will center on the personal growth of a girl name Maki (Sashihara). After a major production company shuts her out of the world of show business, a self-confident former star (Hirano) sees talent in Maki and coaches her to become the next big actress. Maki's rise as an actress gets complicated when the production company sends a young man to undermine her efforts, but he starts to fall for the developing star.

Yūichi Fukuda (Yūsha Yoshihiko to Maō no Shiro live-action show, Pro Golfer Hana) is producing and writing the script for Muse no Kagami. Sashihara will perform the show's theme song as her solo debut. The 24-episode weekly series will premiere in Japan on Sunday at 1:55 a.m.

Hirano will also perform a similar role in the live-action television series Konna no Idol Janain!? (This Ain't an Idol!?), which will begin airing in Japan on Wednesday.
