posted on by Jabulani Blyden
The staff for the live-action television drama adaptation of Bin Kusamizu and Saburō Megumi's Fragile - Byōrii Kishi Keiichirō no Shoken (Fragile - The Finds of Pathologist Keiichirō Kishi) manga announced that TOKIO will perform the series' theme song. The song's title is "fragile."
Tomoya Nagase (live-action Ikebukuro West Gate Park, Sword of the Stranger), who is a member of TOKIO and will star in the series in role of Keiichirō Kishi, wrote and composed the song while reading the screenplay and original manga. The single will ship in February.
Emi Takei (live-action Rurouni Kenshin, live-action Subete ga F ni Naru) will co-star in the series as the novice pathologist Chihiro Miyazaki, who was forced to switch from the internal medicine department to pathology. Additionally, Shuhei Nomura (live-action Daily Lives of High School Boys, live-action Chihayafuru) will play the medical technologist Hisashi Morii, Koyuki (The Last Samurai, live-action Blood: The Last Vampire) will play the beautiful doctor Madoka Hosoki, and Kin'ya Kitaōji (Zettai Reido, Hanzawa Naoki) will play Keiichirō's former mentor Kaoru Nakaguma. (Note: The romanizations of the characters' names have not yet been officially confirmed.)
The show will premiere on January 13 on Fuji TV, and will air every Wednesday at 10:00 p.m.
Junichi Ishikawa will direct the series, while Atsuko Hashibe is writing the scripts. Hiroaki Narukawa is in charge of planning. Hiroshi Kobayashi is credited as producer.
The original manga centers around Keiichirō Kishi, a pathologist who advises doctors on their diagnoses and whose judgement is greatly trusted. Often, doctors remark that he is an eccentric person, but is good at what he does.
Kusamizu and Megumi launched the manga in Afternoon magazine in 2014. Kodansha published the manga's fourth compiled book volume on October 23.
