Mariko Shinoda to appear in new comedy film

It has been recently announced that AKB48's Mariko Shinoda would be casted in a comedy movie for the very first time! She would be involved with the new comedy film from NHK, titled [サラリーマンNEO 劇場版 (笑)] (Salaryman NEO Gekijyouban (warai)).

The movie is based on a previous comedy drama, and the story takes place in beer company NEO Beer, where it depicts the different employees of the company. In the show, Mariko sama would be taking on the role of a regular receptionist by day, and yet holding on to a mysterious job by night. What's going to happen from there? We could only find out by watching the film.

Mariko sama has expressed her excitement for this, as she said she had 'always wanted to be part of a comedy as she loves it so much.' She hopes that the movie would get the support of the fans, as it has been the crystal of hard work from the cast and crew galore.

Adding on to her portfolio as an actress, this comedy would certainly show a different side of her. I personally thought she did really well in the Getsu9 drama, Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta. This show would be something to look forward to.

Check out the short preview of the movie below!
