The 100 Best Contemporary Japanese Movies - Psycho Drama is launching an ambitious yet invigorating project to compile 100 of the best modern-day Japanese movies from the last 2 decades or so - that features the best young actors of their generation - from Joe Odagiri, Takako Matsu and Tadanobu Asano, to Satoshi Tsumabuki, Hikari Mitsushima, Mao Inoue, Ryuhei Matsuda, Shun Oguri and Masanabu Ando to the current crop of exciting young talents - Shota Sometani, Yuya Yagira, Kamiki Ryunosuke, Fumi Nikaido and Ai Hashimoto.

We have started with Sway (Yureru) | Confessions (Kokuhaku) | Josee, the Tiger and the Fish | Hula Girls | Nobody to Watch Over Me and more to come!

If you've watched xxxHolic live action adaptation, then you'll remember that Anne played the witch Yuko Ichihara, while Masahiro Higashide was Watanuki's (Shota Sometani) best friend, Shizuka Doumeki. In the new morning drama from NHK, both stars play a couple.

Synopsis: In the food themed drama "Gochisousan," Meiko Uno (Anne Watanabe) is the daughter of parents who run a western style restaurant in Tokyo. She marries and moves to Osaka with her husband. Meiko experiences cultural differences between Tokyo and Osaka, as she lives as a mother and wife in Osaka.

Says Anne:

"I heard from people how the filming of morning drama is hard, but I think I would be able to enjoy it and I would feel the time would go by fast if I'm surrounded by these great people. I am looking forward to it." [ source ]

Higashide Masahiro is going to play the role of Meiko's husband.

"I hope I can grow as a human and as an actor through this work that I will spend a whole year. All I can do is to face with it sincerely." Reportedly, he will move to Osaka in April, and begin preparing for the filming that will start in May.
