Kanjani8’s Shota Yasuda gets first lead role in drama

Shota Yasuda will be making his drama lead debut by fighting a dragon in the fantasy drama series “ドラゴン青年団 (Dragon Seinen-dan)“, it was announced on May 31, reports Daily Sports Online.

It has been reported the drama follows a group of bored teenagers who waste their time in a cafe, until one day when a dragon appears around Tokyo tower and the group get up on their feet to try and defeat the dragon.  In this video game-like, comedy drama Yasuda will play a 光の戦士 (Warrior of Light) who also lacks any motivation.

The real Yasuda, however, is very excited about his new drama.

“The atmosphere is really enjoyable.  I feel like I’m skipping around.  I think this’ll be a really interesting story,” he said.

It has been reported Yasuda promised he would show his character’s lazy side every week, especially in the weekly scene where the group meet in their regular cafe.

“I hope I can give out a lazy vibe.  I think that’ll be the highlight of the show,” he said.

The drama’s director will be Takahiro Miki, who also directed Johnny’s talent Toma Ikuta’s movie “僕等がいた (Bokura ga Ita)”.

The drama’s cast so far includes Misako Renbutsu, Kaname Endo, Chikara Honda, and Yusuke Santamaria.

“ドラゴン青年団 (Dragon Seinen-dan)” starts on July 17.
