Ex AKB48 turned actress Maeda Atsuko will be making a guest appearance in the 3rd episode of this season’s getsu-kyu drama “Nobunaga Concerto”, starring Oguri Shun. (getsu-kyu means Monday 9pm slot)
The drama is adapted from manga of the same title. Oguri Shun plays a high schooler who gets transported back in time to 1549 during the Sengoku era. He has to battle the weaknesses in himself to live as Nobunaga Oda, a warlord who unites Japan.
Maeda will be playing a village girl called “Oharu” who Oguri Shun meets by chance. The episode is set to air on the 27th October. This will be the first time both Oguri and Maeda are acting together.
“I’m really honoured to be able to join in the grand cast,” says Maeda. “There will be alot of characters appearing. I’d be happy if Oharu leaves a slight impression in everyone’s minds.”
Getsu9 and Oguri Shun….Acchan’s got a good project this time, despite her role being really minor.
