Ohno Satoshi to star in TV Asahi's Spring 2014 drama "Shinigami-kun"

Arashi's leader Ohno Satoshi will be starring in the new TV Asahi Spring 2014 drama "Shinigami-kun" (Mr. Reaper) which will begin its run from April in the Fridays 11.15pm timeslot. The drama is based on the manga by Endo Koichi which was serialised in Fresh Jump between 1983 and 1990 and features Ohno as the newbie reaper serial no. 413. He wears a black suit with a bow tie and will always greet those who are about to die with his signature line "Omedetou gozaimasu! Omukae ni agarimashita" (Congratulations! I have come to fetch you). Although Reaper no. 413 has to go by the book and take away those people who should die, he will also try to prevent wrongful deaths as he tries to emphasize the importance of living.

Ohno last appeared in the same timeslot for TV Asahi in the Winter 2009 drama "Uta no Oniisan" which got an average of 10.8% despite being in the midnight slot.
