Haruma Miura stars in “Samurai Seventeen” drama

Popular young actor Haruma Miura (19) is set to star in an NTV drama series, tentatively titled “Samurai Seventeen.” The show is based on an original script by writer Yumiko Inoue.

Miura plays Kotaro Mochizuki, a private high school student who is normally a mild-mannered, unmasculine guy. But after coming across a mysterious ancient document, he finds that whenever he gets into a difficult situation, he becomes imbued with the heroic samurai spirit of his ancestors.

The character of Kotaro will normally be seen in his school uniform, but for his first transformation, Miura will reportedly have a scene wearing a samurai outfit and engaging in a sword fight.

“Samurai Seventeen” will air on Saturdays at 9:00pm, beginning in October.
