With preparation time of more than 3 hours every time, it’s been a long time since I’ve played a bad role,
I did my best. I was very happy to work with Ryuhei Matsuda. ・Mariko Tsutsui (62)
Mr. Ryuhei Matsuda’s exquisite feeling of omission in the fun of the original and Mr. Bakarhythm’s sense
A blended world. I got excited just thinking about it!

This is a work full of humorous comments from a colorful cast! I hope everyone can laugh and enjoy it.
・Yuma Yamoto (33)
I didn’t have the image of being able to play Hiroshi, so I thought, “What?! That’s impossible.” (lol)
Although the atmosphere is different from the original, I believe I was able to carry on Hiroshi’s spirit and bring out the charm with my own approach. Please look forward to the delivery!
・Shigeru Saiki (73)
I’m an old man who loves manga, so let’s talk about Kenshiro, who I’ve been indebted to both work and private life.
I was very happy to participate. Well, it’s definitely the work that makes me laugh the most. Bad!
・Masanobu Katsumura (60)
As we get older, we become less adventurous.
This team always takes me on adventures.
That adventure is so embarrassing.
However, those who have seen the work praise it and say, “It’s amazing.” So I’m excitedly waiting for my next embarrassing adventure. ・Toru Nomaguchi (49)
I was so happy that it was exactly the role I had wanted to play since I read the original story.
I think it will be silly, sad, and funny, so please look forward to it. ・Airi Matsui (26)
I played Luna Sawamura!
I was happy to be able to spend such a luxurious time with such a gorgeous group of people.
There are a lot of very strong characters, but how will Luna, who I play, be involved in the story through massage?
Please pay attention to the role name and look forward to it! ・Otsuru Obesity (Mama Tart) (32)
When I played the role of a sumo wrestler, I realized why I had become so fat, thinking, “I’ve been gaining weight for this day!” There are a lot of powerful scenes, so please excuse Ma-chan.
・Kazuya Yoshie (31)
My co-star, Obese Otsuru, and I go out for all-you-can-eat tacos in private. I never thought the day would come when we would film together for a drama. . . The shooting site was very bright, and in the waiting room, I was very grateful that the fans and air conditioners were turned on.
It is a work that both manga fans and non-manga fans can enjoy, so please take a look!
