Underrated Drama Recommendation
Title: IS -Otoko Demo Onna Demo Nai Sei (Jdrama)
Cast: Fukuda Saki, Gouriki Ayame, Inoue Masahiro, Irie Jingi
Synopsis: “IS” stands for “intersexual,” a term referring to people who cannot clearly be classified as male or female, and who may biologically possess characteristics of both sexes. Rokuhana’s manga primarily deals with the troubles faced by the young Hoshino Haru (played by Fukuda), an intersexual who was registered as a girl at birth but has been raised as a boy.
Goriki plays Aihara Miwako, a mysterious classmate who tries to get close to Haru. Inoue Masahiro has been cast as Ibuki Kenji, a member of the soccer club whom Haru begins having feelings for. Nishida Naomi and Minami Kaho play Miwako’s and Haru’s mothers, respectively.
Drama Review: “Something about jdramas that know how to make you understand another person difficulty in life. Like One Liter of Tears, this drama taught me about the important things in life.
There is so many things that I thought about after watching this drama. It made me wonder what I would have done if I was in Haru’ shoes or if I was a parent of an IS… things like that. My only complain about the drama is that it was too short. Other than that it was great drama to watch. I recommend it to whoever enjoys a good deep jdrama. - filssun
