Supporting cast lineup of new NTV Spring 2017 drama "Kakuu OL Nikki" announced

The supporting cast lineup of new Yomiuri TV / NTV Spring 2017 drama "Kakuu OL Nikki" written by and starring Baka Rhythm has been announced. Following the broadcast on Yomiuri TV, Hulu will be showing the drama and include scenes which are not included in the TV version. Yomiuri TV will be showing the drama from 13 April at 1.29am while NTV will begin its run from 15 April.

The drama is based on a blog written by Baka Rhythm between 2006 and 2009 where he posed as a OL nicknamed Kakuu Masuno (meaning fictitious + Baka's real surname) who supposedly worked in a bank and wrote stories about the daily feelings of a OL from her perspective and the people around "her" such as Maki-chan who has such well-defined abs thanks to her training at the gym that she got mistaken as a staff there, naive junior Sae-chan, meticulous senior Noriko-senpai and her manly senior Komine as they gossiped and complained about various topics. As the stories had such a strong realistic touch and were so compelling, the readers didn't feel like it was something which a man was capable of writing. The entries were later compiled and published into a book.

Kaho will be playing Maki-chan who is a gym freak and boasts of washboard abs while Usuda Asami will be playing Komine who behaves like a man. Yamada Maho will be playing Noriko-senpai and Sato Ryo will be playing Sae-chan.
