Watanabe Mayu in “Saba-dol”

What?! Watanabe Mayu is getting her own drama as a leading actress? What?! It’s about

“An unattractive teacher who’s 38 years old, but has a double identity as “Watanabe Mayu”, a much-beloved 17-year-old idol?”

That sounds like one interesting concept! “Saba-dol” begins airing on January 13th, 2012. Check out the preview below!

    Slightly unbelievable story, but could be fun :P I’ll give it a try, but I’m not gonna expect too much…

      It sounds like fun! Mayu is too cute to play something serious,  I’ll be checking it out for the laughs :-).

      She should play an android or something!

    Any idea what channel this is on (and what time)? I browsed around on the TV guide for a bit but couldn’t find it.

      Thanks! Unfortunately TV Tokyo doesn’t seem to be available in Osaka (unless I’m missing something). Oh well!
