The program starts from Saturday April 7 on NHKラジオ第1 (R1) which can be found on KeyHole. NHK also has a webcasting smartphone app for those in Japan. On March 23 at 21:30 there is special introductory show.
April 7 also sees Shige in a Drama SP –｢ブラックボード～時代と戦った教師たち～｣ / Blackboard ~Teachers who fought the times~ Story 3 – TBS also at 21:00.
This is the final of three stories set in different time periods and with different casts.
From Tokyohive : the final episode (April 7th) will be actually set in modern-day Japan again, and will tackle the story of forbidden teacher-student relationships. Matsushita Nao will play a very devoted English teacher who’s offering personal lessons for a pupil (played by Kamiki Ryunosuke), who barely can read or write.
Out of jealousy, the other pupils start to spread a false rumor about an alleged love relationship between her and said pupil. Even though it’s a lie, the rumor soon spreads to her coworkers and parents of the pupils. She loves being a teacher, and therefore tries to endure it all, but things become more difficult when the PTA (Parent-Teacher Association) files a complaint against her.
NEWS‘ Kato Shigeaki will play one of her colleagues, while SKE48’s Matsui Jurina will take on the role of a jealous pupil who starts the rumor.
Shige commented recently (Mar 18) on his Sunday night radio show that he is playing a Maths teacher.
On this broadcast Shige also talks about his new project with K8's Maruyama due to start in the next issue of Myojo
