One panel from Fragile
Bin Kusamizu's original work, Fragile
, with art by Megumi Saburou, will have a television drama adaptation. It will start on the 13th of January in 2016 on Fuji Television.Fragile
is a medical-themed work serialised in Kodansha's monthly publication, Afternoon. A pathologist's job is to diagnose diseases based on an assortment of data, including but not limited to a patient's bodily fluids, stool samples, cells, and blood. It's been decided that the protagonist, a pathologist named Keiichiro Kishi, will be played by none other than TOKIO's Tomoya Nagase.
It'll be 15 years since Nagase's last foray into the world of medical dramas, that being when he starred in TBS' drama, Handoku!!!
, in 2001. However, this time he plays the only suit-wearer in a group of white coats, who more often than not clashes with those who're more passionate than he. As far as how playing the character goes, one way to think of it is that "Kishi is intensely eccentric, but also holds one of the most brilliant minds".( Cast + Staff Comments, Details, Misc. Images )
