The rumours have been confirmed. Takki will be in a special drama for 24Hr TV! This will be his 3rd special drama for 24Hr TV. His 1st was back in 1998 for 「心の扉」& his 2nd was 「父の海、僕の空」in 2004. Takki will be acting as a married couple with Kyoko Fukada. They have a son who is suffering from a rare type of illness.
The drama is adapted from a diary which has been published into a book, entitled 「がんばれば、幸せになれるよ」. This diary was written by a mother whose son passed away from a very rare type of child cancer which only affects 1 in 10,000.

There will be 3 parts to the play again, with each part lasting 45mins. Part 1 & 2 will be based on Yoshitsune and it will be acted out solely by Takki alone! Its definitely going to be such a huge testament to Takki's acting skills! Esp since plays are based on live performances..there will be no such thing as doing a 2nd take. Takki is taking on another big challenge for himself yet again! Wow... I wonder how thick his script is going to be?! Takki is going to need to do loads of memorising! Last year's Yoshitsune during Enbujou was pretty long already! I remember Snuffles & Syl saying that they were getting bored & sleepy during it! ROFL! Everyone was just waiting to see Part 3 aka mini-con. LOL!
