Takei Emi & Ayano Go to star in FujiTV Autumn 2014 drama "Subete ga F ni naru"

Takei Emi and Ayano Go will be working together in the FujiTV Autumn 2014 drama "Subete ga F ni naru" (Everything becomes F) which begins its run from October in the Tuesdays 9pm timeslot.  This is the first time in four years since they've appeared in the same drama after 2010's "GOLD". The drama is based on the same-titled novel series "S & M Mysteries" by Mori Hiroshi which has sold 3.5 million copies to date and each story will be completed in 2 episodes.

Ayano plays the role of Saikawa Sohei, an associate professor teaching architecture in university, who forms an unlikely partnership with his student Nishinozono Moe, a clever girl from a rich family and has great analytical powers. They become known as the S & M pair because of their initials and combine forces to solve various difficult cases.

Filming will begin next month.

this plot was similar to TV Asahi's Watashi no Kirai na Tantei.

At first glance, I thought this sounded similar to the setting in Hard Nuts. In that drama, Hashimoto Ai was a maths genius and Koura Kengo was the police detective. This time, there are some differences i.e. the underlying concept is architecture and the relationship between the leads are teacher-and-student.

A bit worried about Takei Emi though...she keeps getting these lead roles despite being criticised for her poor acting (I haven't seen her recent dramas though so can't comment) and her popularity being the result of hard-sell by her agency. Well, Ayano Go also has a similar problem where those who like him absolutely adore him while those who detest him simply can't see why he's so hot these days. I may just check out the first few episodes to see how things work out between them.
