Maki Yoko & Nishijima Hidetoshi team up again in new movie "Nounai Poison Berry"

Maki Yoko and Nishijima Hidetoshi will be working together again in the new movie "Nounai Poison Berry" (The Poison Berry in My Brain) whihc will be shown in cinemas next year. The original manga is by Mizushiro Setona whose most recent work adapted into a drama was "Shitsuren Chocolatier" earlier this year.

Maki plays the role of Ichiko who is in her 30s and gets involved in a love triangle with a man younger than her and another man older than her. However, being unable to make decisions for herself on how to handle this situation, 5 different personalities residing inside her brain have meetings to decide on the course of action whenever it's needed. The five characters are played by Nishijima who's somewhat like the chairman of the meetings but disliked by Ichiko, Kamiki Ryunosuke who plays a positive character and always looks on the bright side of things, Yoshida Yo who plays the negative thinking personality, child actor Sakurada Hiyori who take charge of impulse feelings (last seen in "Ashita, Mama ga inai" and Asano Kazuyuki who is responsible for bringing up past memories.

Maki who is mostly known for her cool image roles, commented that the character of Ichiko is too far from her own but she sees it as a challenge and is raring to go.
