Absolute Boyfriend

What makes an absolute boyfriend? Is there even such a person? One of the most intriguing mangas that explored those issues is being adapted into a live-action series. In fact, Absolute Boyfriend aired its first episode last Tuesday. I gave up on the manga hoping I could pick up the story on the television adaptation. The characters on the live action series are older than their manga counterparts which I think is appropriate since the issues covered by the story isn't for minors. I am hoping I could gather more romantic ideas from this series. A little romance goes a long way in a relationship anyway.

Yuu Watase's Absolute BoyfriendAdapted for Live-Action

23-year-old Mokomichi Hayami (Densha Otoko, Gokusen live-action dramas) will star as the "ikemen (handsome) lover robot" in Absolute Boyfriend, the drama adaptation of Yuu Watase's romantic comedy manga that will premiere on Japan's Fuji TV on April 8. Watase created the popular Fushigi Yuugi and Ceres: Celestial Legend romance manga, both of which were adapted into anime. 22-year-old Saki Aibu (Doraemon: Nobita no Shin Makai Daibōken - Shichinin no Mahōtsukai) will play the young office lady who accidentally receives Night Tenjō, the latest model of "lover robots." 23-year-old Hiro Mizushima (Hana Zakari No Kimitachi E: Ikemen Paradise, Lovely Complex) will play the human "rival" to Night Tenjō...
