Here's some translated info:
Quote
A few more cast members have been revealed for the TBS mystery drama series “ATARU,” which stars SMAP member Nakai Masahiro. The newly announced additions are Kis-My-Ft2 member Tamamori Yuta, AKB48 research student Mitsumune Kaoru, and model/talento Rola.

“ATARU” was first announced in January, when it was learned that Nakai will be playing an autistic savant named Ataru who possesses extraordinary memory and powers of deduction. At that time, it was also revealed that the cast includes Kitamura Kazuki as a police detective and Kuriyama Chiaki as a former police detective who both work with Ataru.

Tamamori will play the role of Kuriyama’s younger brother who is in medical school, aiming to become a psychiatrist. His character will have the key role of analyzing and explaining Ataru’s savant syndrome.

Mitsumune will play a member of the police’s mobile forensics unit. Although she has a harsh personality, she loves going on group dates, so by 5 o’clock she is often doing her nails or fiddling with her phone. For Mitsumune, this is her first appearance in a television drama.

Rola will only be a guest in the show’s first episode, playing an employee at a supermarket Ataru goes to.

“ATARU” will air on Sundays at 9:00pm, starting on April 15.

I checked out her scene quick last night, she looked FINE, and doesn't seem to be a completely awful actress, either.

JP subs for the first episode are here: http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_108889.htm
Still waiting on EN subs, it looks.

Checked out the first episode. Kaoru not in it so much, hopefully more in future episodes.

But even though she's on it in it so much. I thoroughly enjoyed the episode. Nakai as a savant a bit hard to grasp at first, but it got better as the show went along. Chiaki Kuriyama is good and gave me many laughs. The show has a bunch of little quirks that make it fun. Kaoru's part was short but it added to the show's atmosphere. Good show so far :thumbsup

2nd ep was good. Nakai's performance is growing on me more and more, and Chiaki seems right in her element.



also, there's more kaoru for people who are watching mainly for her.

Anyone else feel like Nakai's role was kind of lacking in ep 3? as compared to the first 2 eps, he just felt like kind of a secondary character and didnt have as much impact in ep 3
