I’ve decided to sub the drama series “Nishiogikubo Mitsuboshi Youshudou” which starts next month. I wasn’t planning to pick up any dramas this season initially but this came along… and it sounds like something I will like, a Shinya Shokudo-ish slice of life but with cocktails and canned food instead lol. Based on the manga by Asai Sai, this is Machida Keita’s first drama lead and I realized this will be my
4th 5th dorama tokku project. Looking forward to the rest of the cast and special guests!
The story is set in Nishi-Ogikubo, a small town sandwiched between Kichijoji and Ogikubo. In a corner of Nishi-Ogikubo is a bar called “Mitsuboshi Youshudo”. It is a small bar run by three former classmates: a handsome bartender Amamiya (Machida Keita), a reserved chef Nakauchi (Fujiwara Kisetsu), and the owner Kobayashi (Morisaki Win). The bar has a mysterious charm that attracts people with worries about various things in their lives; they step in unconsciously, attracted by its atmosphere…. Meanwhile, the three men working at the bar also seem to have their own issues…
