Japanese Drama "Galileo" Gets SP On Same Day As Film's Release

I found this great piece of news online at:, fans of the Japanese drama series "Galileo" would definitely be happy at the news!

Fans of the drama series "Galileo" have one more thing to look forward to since the series ended last year. Anticipation is already high for the "Yougisha x no Kenshin" movie (follow-up movie of drama series Galileo), opening in theaters on October 4. Now, Fuji TV is turning it into a double dose: a one-shot special titled "Galileo: Episode Zero" will be aired on the same day as the film's release.

The special is set 3 years prior to the drama series, with the story being related to a murder case that was referenced in the original show. Detective Kusanagi (Kazuki Kitamura) is looking to solve a murder mystery, and he gets back in touch with his former badminton teammate, the brilliant professor Manabu Yukawa (Masaharu Fukuyama).

The special will also portray an incident from Yukawa's college days. Popular teen actor Haruma Miura plays the young Yukawa. Other cast members include Masami Nagasawa as a student lab assistant and Karina as a mysterious woman tied to the murder case. Fuji TV will broadcast the drama at 9:00pm on 4 October 2008.

I also found the theme song "Kiss Shite" of the drama "Galileo" from Youtube. The song is a collaboration between Kou Shibasaki and Masaharu Fukuyama and it is a nice and cute song. Fukuyama wrote the song and lyrics. I have included the MV below :> The trio are also doing another song, a love ballad titled "Saiai" for the Galileo movie and i'm looking forward to hearing the song.
