Winter 2009 Drama Preview: VoicePublished on January 14th, 2009.
Although I was more excited by last season’s dramas, this winter does have a few potential goodies as well. The first drama I’m going to mention is Voice, I’ll feature a couple of others as well so look forward to that!
Voice is a medical mystery drama with Eita in the lead along with Ikuta Toma, Ishihara Satomi, Endo Yuya and Sato Tomohito. The story is about five medical students whose goal is to convey the “voices of the dead.”
Kaji Daiki fails to get into a popular heart surgery seminar but is somehow accepted into a seminar on forensic pathology. When he approaches professor Sagawa and asks him why he ended up in the seminar, Sagawa challenges him by asking why he wants to study heart surgery. Daiki replies that medicine is meaningless after the heart stops, but Sagawa counters that medicine also applies to the dead. –Tokyograph
This is probably going to be the most popular drama of this season, mostly because of this being Eita’s first lead role in a drama. I like Eita, but the other actors in this drama are just as good, I’m especially fond of Ishihara Satomi (Hanayome to Papa, Puzzle) and Ikuta Toma (Maou, Hanazakari no Kimitachi e). I think it’ll be a little weird for me to watch this right now since I just finished watching Hanayome to Papa, both lead roles (father and daughter) are found in this drama.
