Minamata have been trying really hard to promote the image of being the town of First Love. Kumamoto Prefecture’s First Love PROJECT 2016 is continuing that effort.
In February 2016, they released a radio drama trilogy as a podcast called Minamata Hatsukoi PODCAST (lit. Minamata First Love Podcast) voiced by an excellent team of voice actors. Now they have released the sequel, Minamata Hatsukoi PODCAST: Toki no Kakehashi (Time’s Bridge).
In the show, voice actors Miyuki Sawashiro and Daisuke Kishio perform the protagonistic parts with the necessary passion needed to show the sweetness and bitterness of love.
The new two-part story is set in Tokyo and Minamata. It is an adult love story depicting how first love transforms and changes over the years.
Except the two protagonists, the podcast has veteran actress Eiko Masuyama voice the mother and Masumi Asano as the romantic rival. The show will be available as a podcast until the end of February 2017.
