Yankee-kun to Megane-chan Drama

A manga by Miki Yoshikawa, Yankee-kun to Megane-chan is getting it`s drama adaptation and will be premiered on April 23. The drama adaptation was announced by the 13th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine.

In Yankee-kun to Megane-chan's story, class representative Hana goes all out to drag Daichi into school activities and their high school's social circles. Daichi learns that Hana was secretly a former delinquent herself, and that is why she tries so hard to reform Daichi as well.

Hiroki Narimiya (Gokusen, Tokyo DOGS, Drop) will be playing the title "Yankee-kun" (delinquent) Daichi Shinagawa, while Riisa Naka (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Kami no Shizuku) will play the eyeglasses-wearing, overachieving "Megane-chan" or Hana Adachi. I have not seen Riisa Naka`s performance before but I`ve seen Hiroki Nariyama playing a delinquent in Drop and he did great portraying such character! Can`t wait for this dorama. ^^,
