Another new Japanese drama that is set to air soon, on 23 January 2010, Saturdays at 8 pm on TBS.
The drama stars Miura Haruma and Sato Takeru.
This is a remake of the manga by the same name, although I think the second season moves away from the original story. The manga can be read at Onemanga.
The second season is quite similar to the first season, where Tokyo is faces with something deadly and can wipe out the entire city. Where the first season dealt with a deadly Russian weapons-grade virus, and the new season is set two years later when an aircraft bearing a new kind of nuclear weapon threatens Tokyo. Miura plays the role of a genius hacker and Sato is his best friend.
I think the terrorist/bad guys in the second season are the same as in the first season. But they have also added new cast members to their ensemble.
I am actually looking forward to this drama as I had already watched the first season and got really addicted to it – I was watching the first season as I was preparing for my Law Year 1 Finals – but, I will have to constrain myself and not overdo it. So I will only be able to watch when I have the time. Haiz~
Anyways, the drama summary, here.
And a trailer.
Something extra to read regarding the drama, here.
