TV Tokyo drama SP "Pensees" starring Perfume to be shown via Netflix
TV Tokyo drama SP "Pensees" starring Perfume will be streamed exclusively within Japan via Netflix from 19 April. The drama SP was first shown via TV Tokyo on 31 March and 1 April and featured the three members Nishiwaki Ayaka (Acchan), Kashino Yuka (Kashiyuka) and Omoto Ayano (Nocchi) as the leads. The story is based on an original script written by Kizara Izumi with the themes of what it means to have a dream, work and die. Nishiwaki plays a company employee nicknamed Don-chan while Kashino plays Okamido who works as in her family business and Omoto plays Noribuu who is a freeter. The three of them became close friends since primary school as they went home together. When the three of them decide to buy a European-style bungalow which they have been eyeing for a long time, the real estate company offers to sell it to them at a very low price on the condition that they look after someone named Rikimaru. Upon agreeing to this, the trio move into the bungalow where they start to ponder over their dreams, work and death through their chats with one another.
