Shinohara Ryoko to star in FujiTV Autumn 2015 drama "Otona Joshi"

Shinohara Ryoko will be starring in the FujiTV Autumn 2015 drama "Otona Joshi" which is due to begin its run from October in the Thursdays 10pm timeslot. She plays the role of Nakahara Aki, a 40-year-old woman who along with her two other friends Osaki Moeko (Kichise Michiko) and Sakata Midori (Suzuki Sawa) cope with their unsuccessful romances and support one another through the journey to find happiness. The script will be written by Ozaki Masaya who was also responsible for the NHK morning drama "Ume-chan Sensei".

Aki looks like a very capable career woman on the surface but is the type to do everything for her boyfriend and yet always ends up with nothing. When she gets dumped, the common remark made by her ex-boyfriends is that she can survive without a man. As such, Aki can only pour out her true thoughts to her buddies and her pet cat. One day, Aki is transferred to a new department to work on a romance-related mobile app and has to approach scriptwriter Takayama Fumio (Eguchi Yosuke) for help. However, he has his own unique views on romance and an odd temperament thus he refuses Aki's offer. This sets them against each other but they gradually become interested in each other over time. Meanwhile, Moeko is actively searching for a marriage partner and meets Kurita Junichi (Tanihara Shosuke) who is the president of Aki's company and a well-known playboy. The two of them get involved in a romance tug-of-war to see who will have the upper hand in the end. Midori is a divorcee who has to support her three children.
