Very interesting concept! Fuji TV has gotten themselves a truckload of good stuff next winter! Katori Shingo, Takeuchi Yuko, Matsuda Ryuhei, Ikuta Toma, Narumi Riko, Narimiya Hiroki, and now this drama! :)

by "deer", is it the actual animal deer? so hiroshi's under the order of an animal? i'm a bit confused by the plot.

Oh yes. Real deers. That's one of the things that Nara is well known for. I'm not too certain about the plot because I'm too lazy to read the synopsis but it definitely is bizarre. Tamaki looks awfully haggard in the pictures in the official site.

The press conference for Shikaotoko Aoniyoshi was held today. Main cast members, Tamaki Hiroshi, Ayase Haruka, Kodama Kiyoshi, Tabe Mikako, Sasaki Kuranosuke and Shibamoto Yuki, were present at the event. Tamaki said, "It's a drama that's difficult to explain but please follow it because it is very interesting."

Shikaotoko Aoniyoshi is a fantasy novel that was published in 2007 and was even a nominee for the Naoki Prize. Tamaki plays the protagonist, Ogawa Takanobu, who becomes a temporary science teacher at a high school for girls in Nara because he was forced out of his university for interpersonal difficulties, and finds himself troubled by individualistic teachers and insolent students. However, he is suddenly entrusted with an important mission by talking deer and starts striving hard.

The drama starts airing every Thursday from 17 January at 10.00 p.m. The first episode will be an extra 15 mins long.
