LIMIT (2013)





Drama: Limit
Romaji: Rimitto
Japanese: リミット
Writer: Keiko Suenobu (manga)
Network: TV Tokyo
Release Date: July 12, 2013 --
Runtime: Fridays 24:12
Language: Japanese
Country: Japan



A live-action version of Keiko Suenobu’s manga “Limit” is scheduled to air this July. Earlier today, details on the cast as well as a few teaser images were released in anticipation of the plot-driven drama.
The drama follows Konno, a high-school student played by Sakuraba Nanami. Konno joins the most powerful group or “clique” in her class, led by Sakura Himezawa, so she can live a somewhat peaceful school life. By joining the popular group, she can avoid being bullied and avoid all the hassle that comes with being part of one of the lesser groups. Things are going as planned until one fateful day when, on her way to school, her school bus goes off a cliff after the bus driver suffers an attack.
Only five girls live through the accident which kills everyone else on the bus, included the group’s leader, Sakura. As one of the survivors, Konno must work together with the 4 other girls if they are to survive. Unfortunately, pent up emotions and feelings which have laid dormant and have been buried deep may threaten their cohesiveness and will put their lives in danger.




It has been revealed that former AKB48 member Masuda Yuka will make an appearance on TV Tokyo's upcoming drama "LIMIT".
"LIMIT" is a live-action drama adaptation of Suenobu Keiko's popular manga. The protagonist is a high school girl named "Konno Mizuki". One day, Mizuki's class goes on a field trip, but on the way there, their bus falls off a cliff in the mountains. Only five girls including Mizuki survive the accident. They are injured, lost in the mountains, and no one is coming to rescue them anytime soon. Pushed to their limits, the girls are forced to switch into survival mode and to lay bare their innermost feelings.
Last month, it was already announced that actress Sakuraba Nanami would play the protagonist, and three of the four other girls would be played by Tsuchiya Tao, Kudo Ayano, and Yamashita Rio. 
Now Masuda has been added as the fifth girl who survives the accident, named "Usui Chikage". Regarding her role, Masuda said, "I felt a little anxious about if I would be able to play this role when I read the manga, as the character is like the exact opposite of me. However, after the filming started, I feel that I could become Chikage-chan little by little while getting help from other cast members. I hope the viewers could see Chikage being similar to the original manga."

I'm really liking it so far. Granted I'm a big Ayano Kudo fan since I saw her in Suzuki Sensei and she finally gets a bigger role in a drama. But on it's own it's also very interesting.
