Kiritani Mirei to star in FujiTV Spring 2017 drama "Hito wa mitame ga 100 percent"

Kiritani Mirei will be starring in the new FujiTV Spring 2017 drama "Hito wa mitame ga 100 percent" (A person is 100 percent about her appearance) which will begin its run from April 2017 in the Thursdays 10pm timeslot. The drama which is based on the same-titled manga by Okubo Hiromi, features a group of women working in the scientific field who are so caught up with their work that they forget how it is to pay attention to their attention thus earning them the nickname "Joshi Modoki (JSM)" (fake women).

Kiritani plays the lead character Jonouchi Jun who is a researcher working in a paper manufacturing company and has been pouring all her energy into her work that she totally ignores what it means to dress up like a woman and care for her looks. As such, she has had little luck with men all along. However, when she realises that she is in danger of becoming a JSM, she gets together with her fellow female researchers to make an effort in changing their appearances and make themselves more beautiful.

Kiritani commented that although she thinks that being neat and clean is more important than appearance, she hopes to be able to convey the original manga's concept of how looks are important to women. As for the author Okubo, she expressed anticipation at seeing Kiritani play the lead character and seeing her wear a researcher's white robe. According to the staff, the drama will feature some original stories and characters who do not appear in the drama.
