When word was out that Maeda Atsuko was going to have a significant role in an upcoming drama called ‘Q10’, I didn’t bat an eye. It was probably bound to happen, with her consistent popularity.
It wasn’t until I came across this picture that I started to pay attention:
Yes, that is Atsuko: as a robot. And yes, I fall into the undying cliche of finding robots endlessly fascinating, especially those in the form of attractive females. From what I’ve gathered, the drama is about a high school boy who encounters a strange girl who is revealed to be a cyborg. Expect shenanigans, hilarious oddities and awkward situations to unfold as the boy inevitably starts falling for the extremely cute android.
Rumor has it there will be a kiss scene between the two and it will, of course, make me an unreasonably harsh critic on the male actor who plays the protagonist. I’m totally better looking and better suited to play the protagonist, but you know, whatever.
Robot girl played by an idol from my favorite girl group got my attention. It premieres October 16th; hope there’s a team out there planning to sub this!
