Netflix has revealed a new trailer for the Japanese-language series, ‘First Love.’ Directed and written by Yuri Kanchiku, ‘First Love’ will release on November 24 on Netflix, worldwide.
Starring Hikari Mitsushima and Takeru Satoh, the series inspired by songs written and composed by J-Pop sensation Hikaru Utada, tells a spectacular love story that spans over more than 20 years.
The series co-stars Hikari Mitsushima (Sawako Decides) as Yae Noguchi, and Takeru Satoh (Ruroni Kenshin films) as Harumichi Namiki, who play high school sweethearts that meet in the late 90s. Yae Noguchi wants to become a flight attendant, but she has an accident. Harumichi Namiki becomes a pilot for the Japan Air Self-Defense Force. He quits being a pilot and goes the other way. Two decades later, Yae is a single mom to a teenage son, while Harumichi is engaged to marry someone else. However, they soon discover that their love story is not quite over yet.
The series also stars Rikako Yagi, Taisei Kido, Kaho, Minami, Akiyoshi Nakao, Osamu Mukai, Araki Towa, Aoi Yamada, Gaku Hamada, Arata Iura, and Kyoko Koizumi.
For Hikaru Utada, who has written various songs for scripted series and films in the past, this will be the first-ever scripted series directly inspired by their songs. Hikari Mitsushima, Takeru Satoh together with Hikaru Utada's music, is a miraculous combination. A cross-generational love story inspired by “First Love”(1999) and “Hatsukoi”(2018), two seminal songs by Hikaru Utada.
