Taiga to star in "Yutori desu ga nani ka" spin-off drama "Yamagishi desu ga nani ka"

Taiga will be starring in the 4-episode spin-off drama from the SP sequel "Yutori desu ga nani ka Junmai kinjo junjo hen" written by Kudo Kankuro which will be shown via Hulu after the SP is shown via NTV on 2nd and 9th July. The spin-off drama titled "Yamagishi desu ga nani ka" features Taiga as the yutori monster Yamagishi Hiromu and his love story with a new heroine Sudou Fuyumi (Satsukawa Aimi). The three lead actors from the SP i.e. Okada Masaki, Matsuzaka Toori and Yagira Yuuya will also appear in the spin-off drama.

In the spin-off drama, Yamagishi is invited to the TV station as a representative of the yutori generation to assist in the creation of the script for the drama "Yutori desu ga nani ka". While going through an intensive interview into his life, he and the drama's assistant producer Fuyumi begin an unexpected romance.

Taiga commented that he never expected that Yamagishi would be thrust into the spotlight like this as the lead and hoped that the viewers can check out the spin-off drama to see a different side of Yamagishi which was never featured in the main drama. On the other hand, Kudo who has never written a script for an Internet drama prior to this, said that Yamagishi may be seen as a baddie in the main story but is actually a lovable and silly guy who gets to show off his charms in the spin-off drama. As such, he hoped that viewers will watch it after viewing the SP on TV.
