About “First Love”
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. Each pursues their dreams while trying to stay together, but fate has other things planned for them, and 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… 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.
