Longest Drama Title Ever?

Published on December 6th, 2010.

Speaking of Erika Toda via my last post, I have news of her upcoming project. In a drama with the longest title I’ve ever encountered, Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta, Erika will be teaming up with Haruma Miura playing an engaged couple (Natsumi Uemura and Shuji Kashiwagi) whose relationship is tested when Shuji becomes involved with a young girl. I am literally translating the title as The Important Things, You Taught Them All to Me.

Natsumi and Shuji are both teachers at a high school and are set to marry within 6 months. Before the new semester begins, Shuji is swayed from Natsumi by a young girl name Hikari (played by Emi Takei). He later finds out Hikari is among one of his students at school. Awwwkward and BUSTED! Hikari also tries to get close to Natsumi in order to ruin her relationship with Shuji. Can love be mended and can it last now that it has been injured?

This will be a very adult role for Erika and translating the feelings of being betrayed will require some subtleties. Crying constantly isn’t going to cut it for me. I have faith in her though so I’m am looking forward to her performance. The show is set to air in January of 2011.

    I’m sure there’s something longer out there, but it’s pretty long :P It looks a lot longer in romaji though! I’m not a big fan of Haruma Miura actually, although I loved Bloody Monday. But I hope he’ll be good together with Toda! :)

      He doesn’t look quite old enough to be a teacher in that picture either (nor Erika), but I think it’ll be okay :D

      Hopefully they’ll put some make up on him that makes him look older^^ Erika could be though, I think she looks very adult-ish in that picture!

      You know how some commenters pointed out Utada Hikaru looks older with a shorter haircut? I wonder if Erika will cut her hair or something… ^^

      If she did, that would suck big time… =/ Erika doesn’t need to look older, but if they don’t do anything about Miura, it’ll look like Erika is a teacher and Miura is a student of hers :P

      lol It’ll grow back. I have a feeling he’s just gonna get a haircut and wear suits to look older lol.

      Not worth it^^ But it’d be fun if Miura was bald… :P
