Tomagoto volume 229  
11th March 2009

I just got another offer to be in a drama.

Starting 25th April, 「Majo Saiban」(Trial of the witch)

The theme of the drama is related to Japan's new jury system to be introduced in May, and in Majo Saiban, we see the jurors changing their minds again and again, as some of them have been bribed by the underworld organisation...

Is the witch really innocent...

Or is she guilty...

A young man with no interest whatsoever in politics or in society, has suddenly been selected to be a juror, and the story is about the things he sees in that role.

The right...

The wrong...

the story will be something along those lines.

The contents of the drama also touch on the practicality of implementing the juror system, and the problems that may occur with it.

In just a few months the jury system will start, and that will soon become part of us Japanese's daily life. When that happens, no one is sure of how it will turn out.

I will be very happy if you all show an interest in all of the above.

Anyway, for Ikuta Toma, this drama will be his first solo leading role.

「I was shocked to hear about the leading role」

to be honest, it took a while before it sank in.

By the time I come round to accepting it, it has already come this far.

I have seldom received any offer to play the leading role, and so I shall carry this out as if it may be the last one that comes my way.

I will be giving it my all. No holding back.

This is also the first time I am acting in consecutive seasons, and so since it is my first time, everyone, I request you to yoroshiku.

There is just a little bit more left of Voice!

What will happen to all 5 of us ~

I hope to receive the script soon ~ (laughs)
