The Sankei Sports newspaper reports that Arashi band member Satoshi Ohno will star in a live-action television adaptation of Fujiko Fujio A's Kaibutsu-kun supernatural action manga this April. The story follows the prince of Kaibutsu Land, Kaibutsu-kun, as he decides to go to the human world as part of his training to become the king. Fujiko Fujio A is best known for co-creating the classic manga Doraemon.

The new series, which is the first live-action adaptation of the manga after two animated series, will run on the NTV network. The production will use computer graphics and special makeup to transform Ohno into a kaibutsu (monster).

The original manga ran in Shonen Gahosha's Shonen Gaho magazine from 1965 and 1969. Later incarnations ran in Shonen Gahosha's Weekly Shonen King (1967-1969) and Shogakukan's CoroCoro Comic (1980-1982). Tokyo Movie Shinsha animated the story into a 1968-1969 television series and Shin'ei Doga animated a remake from 1980 to 1982. There was also an anime film in 1981.

:unsure: were you referring to GANTZ? it's not exactly in the supernatural genre, but rather science-fiction..
and it's a movie to be released next year..unless there really is a drama rumor for Nino that i didn't know..:P though i doubt it, he's scheduled to start filming for Ohoku (with Shibasaki Kou) on April

Hmmm....monster eh? To be honest, I was rather hoping for the rumoured love drama. Heehee. But of course, since it's our beloved Riida, we'll watch whatever he's in!

Haha, I'm sure Ohno will be able to pull off the monster role, lol. The roles that he's given are always so interesting. xD
