On Wednesday it was announced that 5 members of Team 4 (plus 1 RS) and 6 members of Johnny’s Jr are to star together in a late night drama penned by Aki-P. Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou (Private Bakaleya High School) will air on NTV from Saturday April 14th at 12.50am. The story involves 2 schools merging together – a yankii school (Johnny’s Jr) and a rich girls school (Team 4). The school has 3 codes of conduct for it’s students: no romance, no exchanging email addresses and early to sleep, early to rise. The Team 4 members taking part are Minarun, Paruru, Haruu, Komari and Mariyagi with kenkyuusei Marina Kobayashi joining them too.
I think this collaboration is a recipe for trouble. Take a group of young boys and girls, teenage hormones all around, romance forming between the 2 groups, secret meetings outside of work and before you know it the fans and 2channelers will have found out and we’ll have a scandal on our hands again although I’m sure Minarun wouldn’t break the rules seeing as she’s just come back from being suspended. It’s great though that Team 4 is getting some spotlight. I’ll probably check it out.
