Yesterday it was confirmed that a continuation of the Asahi TV drama Nobunaga Chef starring Kis-My-Ft2’s Yuta Tamamori is going to be airing from July onwards in the Thursday “Golden Time” Timeslot(approximately 8pm ~ 9pm). Nobunaga Chef was first aired last year in January on Friday nights at 11:15pm. It’s a story about a French chef named Ken who time-slips back into the warring period of Japan(wow this sounds familiar!) and becomes Oda Nobunaga’s main chef. Mitsuhiro Oikawa, Mirai Shida, Sei Ashina and Bokuzo Masana from the first season have also been confirmed to re-appear in the new season. When Tamamori was asked for comment about the announcement he said he was “very happy” about it but also felt like there was “a lot of pressure” on him to do his best.
What is with the hype about time-slipping back to the warring period of Japan? I was talking to someone this morning about Nobunaga Concerto and they told me there was another drama last year about a doctor who went back into the warring period of Japan through a time-slip as well. It seems like it’s a really classic theme or something but I only just found out about it yesterday. All of that aside Tamamori was great in Pin to Kona and I think he’ll have no problems shining in the new season of this drama either. It will probably have a pretty positive impact on his career too with a Golden Time timeslot. I want to watch this one when it starts airing so I guess I’m going to have to go search for uploads of season 1 and start from there. Has any seen this drama? If you feel like it tell me what you think of it in the comments.
