Koushounin wa Damara Nai (交渉人は黙らない)
Original work: Eda Yuuri
Illustrator: Chiharu Nara
Release date: 2007/9/25
Koyasu Takehito x Hirakawa Daisuke
This has taken me by surprise. I really like Hirakawa when he plays cool beauty type of mature man, so he probably will do pretty good playing Mebuki. But Koyasu-san, as much as I love him, I’m not sure if his voice would suit Hyoudou, the toshishita seme using honorific forms LOL But it’s good to see Koyasu and Hirakawa are pairing up again after SP2 😄
I’m looking forward to this CD in September! ^_^

Yay! Koushounin wa Damara Nai drama CD will be released on 2007/09/25!!
I really like the original novel by Eda Yuuri. I had so much fun reading it. It has a good plot and characters are so lovable and hilarious too.
Here is the brief summary of the novel if anyone is interested:
Former prosecutor and lawyer Mebuki Akira is a beautiful and intelligent man, who despises violence, threat and compulsion, and wants to help the weak. He opened his own office and claims that he will take any negotiation cases except international disputes and conflicts between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. LOL But his office happens to be in the territory of a yakuza gang, and the leader Hyoudou Juetsu happens to be his old acquaintance from high school, the person whom he never wants to see again because that incident happened between them in high school 14 years ago. After the reunion, Hyoudou starts to aggressively pursuing Mebuki. But unlike Hyoudou who’s gay and already “came out of closet” in high school, Mebuki is a straight man who loves girl with cute butt. ^_~ He rejected Hyoudou’s request to be his “woman”, but accepted as Hyoudou’s personal negotiator for 3 days…
I like the way Mebuki is portrayed. He’s cool, calm and smexy, always try to use his words to resolve the situation, even when he was almost raped by his another high school acquaintance, he still calmly tried to talk his way out of it. Well, that doesn’t always work, does it? 😉 But at least he bought some time for his prince Hyoudou to come to the rescue. LOL
I especially enjoy the way Mebuki and Hyoudou talk to each other. It’s so interesting and funny. Mebuki is always mocking Hyoudou because he hates him as well as the yakuza, but Hyoudou always uses honorific expression to Mebuki. They sure have the talent to be the husband-wife comedian duo. Although there’s hardly romance between the two yet, I’m sure it will develop soon, hopefully in the sequel.
One thing I must mention is Chiharu Nara’s illustration. I’d say it’s definitely a big contributor to the popularity of this novel. Her drawing is so incredibly erotic, especially the last one…waaaa…*nosebleeds* Chiharu Nara seems getting a lot of recognition recently. There’re three novels with her illustrations are dramatized and will be released in September alone:
- 交渉人は黙らない (Koushounin wa Damara Nai) (Release date: 2007/09/25)
- 龍を飼う男 (Ryuu wo Kau Otoko) (Release date: 2007/09/25) [Morikawa x Fukuyama Jun]
- 愛してないと云ってくれ (Aishite Naito Itte Kure) (Release date: 2007/09/21) [Inoue Kazuhiko x Mizushima Takahiro]
I can’t wait to see what the cast will be for Koushounin wa Damara Nai.
Chiharu Nara Daisuki!!! =^_^=
