Minamisawa, Mizobata to star in "Akai Ito" adaptations
Tue, June 24, 2008 (12:52am EDT)
In April, it was announced that hit mobile phone novel "Akai Ito" is getting a combined drama and film adaptation later this year. Fuji TV has now revealed that the lead characters will be played by teen stars Nao Minamisawa and Junpei Mizobata.

The story was one of the best-selling novels of 2007, similar to the success of "Koizora." "Akai Ito" revolves around the "red thread of fate" connecting the young pair Mei (Minamisawa) and Atsushi (Mizobata) and the trials they face.

"Akai Ito" will have the same cast and staff working on both the big screen and small screen versions, and the two will be closely connected. The drama series will start in December, with the first two episodes laying the foundation of the story. Then the movie will pick up the plot when it opens on December 20, incorporating the novel's main storyline and adding original elements. After that, the drama will continue to develop and finish off the story.

The project's website indicates that the supporting cast includes Ryo Kimura, model and actress Rei Okamoto, Anna Ishibashi, Nanami Sakuraba, and Tomo Yanagishita.

I watched the 1st ep and found it extremely sweet!
And for those of you who want to know what happened here is the story in a nutshell:
The 2 mains have met each other in the past on their birthday, February the 29th. Mei gave Atsushi the chocolate sign on her cake as a present. Present day, Mei has a crush on her childhood friend Yuya. Her friends pester her to confess to him cause they think he likes her as well. Atsushi is being taken care of by a temple priest (not his real father) and is in the same class as Mei.
While cleaning Haruna's (Mei's older sister) room with Yuya, Mei finds a picture of her as a baby together with a baby boy. Everyone assumes it's Yuya and Mei thinks it's really her destiny to be with him. However her mother doesn't confirm it's Yuya in the picture (my guess is it's Atsushi).
Mei receives a mail from Yuya to meet alone. She thinks he is going to confess. Atsushi overhears her happy monologue. When she meets him though he brings his friends over. Turns out one of them wanted to become "Mei's friend". Mei is dissappointed but agrees to exchange adresses. On their way home Yuya and Mei spot Haruna together with another boy and Yuya is clearly jealous. Later when Mei asks Haruna she tells her it was a senpai whom she knew since middle school. Mei lies to Yuya and tell him he was Haruna's boyfriend. She regrets it later.
Yuya calls her over to the temple and tells her he is in love with Haruna. Mei is brokenhearted. Atsushi accidentally steps in but manages to make Mei smile while they fix the broken bell.
Back in the past, when Mei & Atsushi parted ways, Atsushi has a seizure. He is transported to the hospital where the doctor finds stimulants in his blood.
My guess is it's going to be really interesting!!

Well there are a lot of similarities (that's why anyone can't help but compare them) and I don't know how it's going to end but from ep 1 I found it more interesting than Koizora. I think it's going to be darker. And it's a big plus the series & the movie go hand in hand incorporating different parts of the storyline with the same cast. In Koizora it was a movie & a drama with the same plot and different cast.

Wasn't Koizora written by a different writer?

There may be similarities in plot but I don't think it's going to be the same thing. I was planning on starting this thread, good thing you beat me to it. I'm really excited about this show. :cheers: :w00t:

I was hoping this would be a bit more light hearted since I'm currently suffering through the drama of Innocent Love that is full of romantic angst even if they aren't in school...it sure plays on screen like a soap to an extent.

However, this is definitely a show I've been eyeing and I can't wait for. I just reserve the hope that there will be some light hearted stuff like a live action Toradora!.

is it only me who doesn't find it similar to koizora at all...i mean apart from the fact that its a love story about two students....

i saw the first episode and liked the general atmosphere. i'm glad that they are not making
mei into a total goody-goody because that can get old after awhile.

I'm looking forward to next week...i only wish the episodes weren't so short.

how i hope it doesn"t end
they fall in love only to find out that they are twins.... :x

It is normal to be compared with Koizora because both are mobile phone novel and based on love story but expect that i dont think it is same as Koizora as i watched i think the plot is more detailed in ths one ...

Anyway as i said i hope a group tend to sub this (maybe thay are waiting for movie) so we will be all happy <3

Eeek! That would be terrible! But since it's a real life story it I don't think it will be THAT unrealistic. I think they just kept meeting throughout their lives since they were very small. Not that that is very realistic as well... :lol

I loved the first episode. I thought that it is filmed very well for a teenage romance. The casted actors are pretty good as well. I am happy to see that no Johnny's are involved. This drama has the same feel to it as Koizora and 14-Sai no Haha, but the storyline is much more intriguing. Probably because I have no idea how is it going to develop. The ending was very unexpected, I seriously can't wait for episode 2. We'll see,I think this drama has a chance of becoming the best Japanese drama of 2008 (for me at least).

I was wondering, since the movie adaptation for it will air this Friday, and probably most of us watching won't be able to see it because we don't like in Japan, do you guys think that it'll be weird to watch the rest of the drama after that? :/

what I know is that the movie takes place after episode 2 (?) and after that it goes on with episode 3...but I don't really know >,<
only that the movie takes place between some episodes....that's really really bad..because of that what you said....we're unable to see it *cry*
I hope it isn't really important for the series

and
The cast and staff will be exactly the same for both works, and the stories will be strongly linked. In fact, the movie will open in theaters while the drama is still airing. The drama serves both as the start and end of the story, with the movie falling in the middle of the timeline.
tokyograph

:sweat:

Definitely a bad thing for those of us not living in Japan. I'll be content with just a summary of the movie if this is the case because if you want to wait until you watch the movie so you can finish the series, you'll be waiting another ... 7 months until the DVD release? :sweat: Kinda sucks, I watched the first episode about an hour ago, fell in love with the series and then come and read this.

?

I'll quote:

Red thread of fate:

A common concept, especially in series dealing with romances, is the Red String of Fate (akai ito or unmei no akai ito). The concept is that two people who are destined to be together are attached by an invisible red string bound to their pinky finger.
I'm not good at explaining something like that but I think that's basically what 'red thread of fate/red string of fate' is. :)

Red thread of fate is the belief mostly popular in Asian that God ties a red thread into your pinky finger. The other end of the red thread is tied with the person you are destiny to be with (like fall in love, marry, etc..)
So this drama is about a girl met her destiny guy and the trials they must face to be with each other. blah blah ^^

The second episode is just as good as the first one. Junpei is amazing, I love the pay he portrays his character. The whole movie issue kind of worries me though, I've finally found a drama I really like and I want to see the whole story.

hi, just watching the first episode...and it looks great! well, i hope this isn't out of topic but i'm just really curious about the child who portrays the young Junpei, is it a GIRL or a BOY...coz i recognize *him/her* from Innocent Love too...

That's in Akai Ito, short hair as a guy.

Innocent Love, with an obviously fake long hair as a girl.

I've also seen this kid in Tomorrow, as one of the patients. *been seeing him/her everywhere lol* So, anyone knows the kid's REAL gender? I'm confused :blink

chibi!Atsushi is a girl. ^^ And I totally believed that she was a boy! :o Her name is Sawaki Ruka, and Ruka is typically a girl's name. Or at least, I've never heard of any actor with that name. XD She is part of Sweet Power, which houses Minamisawa Nao, Sakuraba Nanami, and Miyatake Mio, all of whom are in Akai Ito. ^^

Yep! And no problem. Ruka's still cute even after finding out that she's a girl. XD And since her and Mio are in the same agency, they probably don't feel weird with the whole being opposites of each other? ^^

By the way, i too think this is better than koizora. Frankly speaking, i cant remember the koizora plot now, it is not really very intriguing..

But the movie trailer looks so interesting and lots of things happen in there.

ARGH... :glare:

The movie already started on December 20th. And from the drama episodes 3 to 9 will be link to the movie, 10 and 11 will be after continue to pick up from everything before that.
From what i read at 2ch about the movie, it will take place during their summer vacation where all the gang rape, drugs and suicide issues come in. I don't know how they will shoot or include all these for the movie and drama itself. Starting from the first episode, the characters are already all mixed up between the show and novel itself because the show will focus on the relationship between Mei and Akkun, whereas for the novel, to be honest, i felt that the real main male doesn't really exist. It's all Mei herself telling the stories about her and a few guys she got into relationship with, which includes Akkun as well.

from this, it looks like the movie will show some really vital scene that begins conflicts, which is pretty much the centre of everything...so i guess, the movie is a must watch in order to fully understand the plot.

But the way they mixed up the novel and such *like what you said* i am a bit confused right now...seems like Akkun isn't actually the MAIN afterall huh...? :unsure: But nevertheless, for someone who didn't read the novel, it's ok to just go with the drama's flow then. thanks for the info!
now i'm wondering when will we ever get to watch the movie? :glare:

if the movie will be released on dvd and is subbed by someone....but for this we have to wait up to 5 month

but maybe we're lucky and the japanese dvd will have english subtitles
and then I will buy the dvd instead of downloading

Wow, if the movie airs on Fuji TV that means we'll get the torrent for it right away, not having to wait for the DVD release, right?

I just saw Akai Ito in theaters and it was pretty good, if a bit overdramatic (but hey, it's a drama). The ending was a little frustrating/confusing, however.

well, in this case is it necessary to watch the movie first before the third episode?

^ Well I'm quite lost too since both aired on the 20th. But I think episode three comes before the movie.

^ Yeah, same question here.

Also if it IS going to air on Fuji then I'll put off watching the rest of the episodes until the movie is uploaded onto the net.

I just finished watching episode 3 with subs. Junpei is growing on me. He is so natural in his role, very different from Hachi-One Diver. I also love the development of the side characters, especially Riku. He clearly has feelings for Mei. I think this drama is amazing. It reminds me of my own school days.

Wow, I really need to start picking better jdramas. :l

This drama totally has my attention. I should really watch more serious romantic jdramas rather than the cheesy comedies. Except, I couldn`t help but laugh at the cheesy parts.. but overall, its a good drama. ^^

Does anyone have any idea where the movie exactly comes in?

I already read the notes @unleashthegeek, so if we finished up the rest of the episodes it won't make much of a difference before we watch the movie since they're almost like the same thing?

Thanks much for the link to the subs. The scene at the beginning of episode 3 with all the kids playing boys against the girls, shoot and giggle basketball was about as fine a piece of film making in this genre as there is. It captures the true essence what it means to be young. The more I see of this series the more I like it.

^ oh yeah i totally agree with you~! but i feel that since the movie is gonna come out later and subs will take longer, i think its okay to just watch the dramas first and we should still know whats really going on.... then wait til the movie and subs for it comes out! haha.

yeah the drama is really confusing, airing-wise.

BUT ITS PRETTY GOOD SOOOO FAR~ the more i watch it, the more i fall in love with junpei ♥
