Kentaro Ito
“I was very honored to be able to complete the cure with the familiar” Tokyo Love Story “. At that time, it was a social phenomenon, so I would lie if there was no pressure. There are plenty of smartphones and elements that are not present in the old Tokyo Love Story, so I hope you enjoy the new Tokyo Love Story made by Reiwa. ”
Shizukawa Ishibashi
“ When I heard this story, I think that it would be a new challenge for me to play a sensational role called Rika Akana, and to enter a work that is a bit embarrassing to face romantic relationships. The shooting was delicate and straightforward, so every day I was hurt, joyful, and tearful together with Rika who lives hard while she hurt herself. I was happy that I was able to play such a wonderful woman, and I hope that each character will see them grow by loving someone. ” Sho Kiyohara
“At first, there was pressure and excitement when I heard that we were making a new hit drama called” Tokyo Love Story “now. I thought through this work that I was able to make myself think in various ways.Some parts I could sympathize with and some parts I couldn’t, so I think the way I feel depends on each viewer. I’m looking forward to seeing you in the eyes of Mikami, and I’m glad to be able to create a work called “Tokyo Love Story” with the cast members I hope you look forward to it, and I hope many people will watch it. ”
Anna Ishii
“I was surprised when I heard the title. I was so happy because I didn’t even dream of getting into that world! I was really excited about what kind of work it would be. At times, I had a lot of sympathy for Sekiguchi Satomi, so when I actually performed, I performed while being aware of what I sympathized with, and there were various scenes, but I learned and enjoyed it! The hearts of the four people swaying on the ground are drawn beautifully and intricately and beautifully. I would like you to enjoy the group play while sympathizing with others and overlapping with others! ”
Author, Fumi Shibamon
“Tokyo Love Story, which was made into a drama in 1991, will be re-dramaized for the first time in 29 years. In this drama, the characters are utilized and the stage is contemporary, so a smartphone that is not in the original Tokyo has changed a lot, Starbucks and Uniqlo have been absent, Kanchi and Mikami have been smoking. Young people who were never born during the first drama I’m really looking forward to seeing how the actors play Canchi and Rica. ”

I thought that I wanted to be involved in drama production, but that was when I watched Tokyo Love Story in 1991. I was a 17-year-old high school student at that time. Then, 29 years later, I would have to do it myself … with a deep emotion and immeasurable pressure. I hope that many young people will be able to watch for the first time for young people and for those who know the past with a new feeling of nostalgia. Everyone, look forward to it! ”
