Misaki Ito in Yama Onna Kabe Onna

While I patiently wait for Maison Ikkoku to be fansubbed I stumbled upon this great news for Misaki Ito (photo gallery) fans Like me. I so hope that the Kyoko Fukada (Tenshi, Strawberry on the Shortcake)rumor is true she's really great too.

Misaki Ito becomes 'kabe onna'
Wed, May 16, 2007 (4:19pm EDT)
Actress Misaki Ito will star in Fuji TV's summer drama, "Yama Onna Kabe Onna." The series is an adaptation of Atsuko Takakura's manga which was serialized in Kodansha's Evening KC magazine.

The story revolves around a woman working in a department store (Ito) whose meager bust has earned her the nickname of "kabe onna" ("kabe" means "wall" and "onna" means "woman"). Unfortunately for her, a well-endowed "yama onna" ("yama" meaning "mountain") gets assigned to the same department, heightening her insecurity.

There is no official word yet on who will play the role of the "yama onna," but rumor says it's Kyoko Fukada.

The series begins on July 5, airing Thursdays at 10:00pm.
