The drama features Noda as the lead character Michima Shin, a struggling writer who suddenly finds himself living with 5 mysterious women under the same roof. The women pay him a huge amount of rent totaling one million yen every month but their motive for getting close to him and their true identities will only be known as the story progresses. At the same time, Shin also finds his life changed in a drastic way through living with these women.
Noda said that as he is not a professional actor, he hopes to be able to show the confused side of Shin through his acting and views it as a challenge for himself. When he got the offer, he was impressed by how passionate the staff was about this production and stressed that this drama is very interesting so viewers should check it out. The drama's producer Goka Kimitaka said that the staff decided unanimously to approach Noda for this role as they felt that he had a mysterious air as seen from his debut movie "Toilet no Pieta" in 2015 which won him a newcomer award in the 39th Nippon Academy Award.
"Hyakumanen no Onnatachi" will be released via Netflix from 7 April onwards and shown via BS Japan from 18 April in the Tuesdays 11pm timeslot.
