[Discussion] Moyashimon Live-Action Drama

Post by Vider » Mar 4th, '10, 06:29

I did not find any mention of this drama in the forums, so I decided to start a discussion for it :-)

Moyashimon or もやしもん
Official Site
Drama Wiki
Airtime: July 8, 2010

Edit:
This article gives a bit more info:

[...] "The official website for the live-action drama adaptation of Masayuki Ishikawa's Moyashimon manga has launched with a one-minute promotional video on Sunday. (In the linked page, select the pink "スペシャル" germ in the menu at the bottom.) The July television series will be the first live-action work on the Fuji TV's popular late-night Noitamina timeslot. The story follows a college student who discovers that he can see and communicate
with the germs all around him — germs that appear as super-deformed characters. Yuichi Nakamura and the other stars of the drama presented the video during Sunday's press conference for Noitamina's 2010 lineup." [...]

I saw a program on NHK World that talked about this manga. I thought it was interesting, and I became more excited when I learned that they were making this into a drama.
The bacterias look too cute! haha In that same program, they even showed how the animators were making the bacterias for the live action.

I havent's seen the anime yet but since it interested me so much I think I will watch it now. I hope the drama would be good too. :-)

I watched it on the Funimation web site and really liked it, but I am a fan of the anime too. Fun show for me.

Thanks for saying. I will have to watch so that my Channaka fangirl friends don't beat me with a stick.

Don't have any expectations of the drama and you should be okay? I really wouldn't recommend it to people. The story is...so so. I just watched it for Nakamura Yuichi.

I do not know the manga nor the anime series but I watched the first ep. of this drama-series raw with my little boy :mrgreen: (he's seven years old and does not understand Japanese at all) and it's his favourite to watch !! The grossness and the germs really cracked him up. :lol: So yeah, I think, even if this series is getting nowhere, it's definitely a keeper!! :wub:

I really enjoyed the anime and I hope the live-action version is just as fun.

I just watched the first episode and wondered where Kei was in the opening credits... I also wish that Kei wasn't being portrayed by a female actress...

This will be a fun, light drama I think and I'm going to try not to compare it TOO much to the anime because I probably will be disappointed :P

Episode 1 Thoughts

Just saw the first two episodes, and it was cute. ^-^ I was freaked out by Haruka, but I'm liking the Tadayasu/Hazuki pairing very much. ^-^

Looking forward to future episodes~

Three is already up on Funimation! I am really enjoying being able to watch a show with subs within 24 hours of its initial airing. I hope this is a wave of the future!
