It has been AGES since I saw a production starring Takako Tokiwa. I think she has been staying away from the drama screen for far too long! From my memory, in the last few years, she has been part of some movies and one-off shows but that’s about it.

This year, she has another movie on the horizon! It is expected to be released in October. The movie is Hikidashi no Naka no Love Letter which will be directed by Mishiro Shinichi. He had worked on Hana Yori Dango 2 & Final. 

The movie’s theme is described as “communicating one’s feelings,” lamenting modern society as being full of people that have forgotten how to truly express themselves, reduced to just formal greetings and impersonal messages. Its story is based on the book “Todokanakatta Love Letter,” which has become a big seller due to its popularity online. 

In the film, Tokiwa plays a radio show host whose father died without being able to express himself. For more…

I like the sound of this movie! Yay!! Finally get to see Takako!! She’s been one of my favourite actresses since watching the Japanese drama, Beautiful Life.
