“Misaki No. 1!!” adds Aya Omasa
Following up on the recent cast announcements for the “Misaki No. 1!!” drama series, one more major cast member has been revealed. Up-and-coming actress Aya Omasa (19) will play the main female student.
The series stars Karina (26) as a hostess who temporarily becomes the teacher for a class of problem students. Omasa has been cast as a student named Yui Sakurai, the only girl in a group known as the “ochikobore 5-nin-gumi” (which can be loosely translated as the “Failure Five”). Her energetic character acts like an older sister to the boys in the group, which include the previously announced Kis-My-Ft2 members Taisuke Fujigaya (23) and Hiromitsu Kitayama (25).
