Niwatori Star 2018 (Japan), also known as Niwatori Sutaa, ニワトリ スター is Japan drama premiere on Mar 17, 2018
Rakuto is a blond-haired, long-necked and tattooed “Niwatori star” (chicken star). The twenty-something is transplanted into Tokyo from Okinawa. His buddy and roommate Sota is slightly older and sells weed to support them. They live in a dilapidated apartment building run by a nymphomaniac landlady who demands sex from her younger tenants. They work at a punk bar on the first floor called FUS (Fuck You Sunshine) and the environment is populated by throwaway characters like the half-Thai, half-Jamaican Muki, who just smokes weed and plays guitar terribly. The two protagonists roam aimlessly and sloppily rebel against Japan. The action intensifies when Jay turns up to smoke weed with the pair. The wannabe rapper dresses like an LA gangster and works for the yakuza. His murder by the yakuza is a warning sign to Rakuto and Sota that they can’t maintain their careless, drug-fuelled lifestyle. Will Rakuto take responsibility for his child? And can he avoid the yakuza?
