For the first time ever, a serial drama about the exotic, 4-century old world of kabuki theater comes to television from an original comic series that sold over a million copies in Japan. Pintokona, a kabuki term, refers to a handsome and manly nature but with a solid core. Despite being born into a famous kabuki acting family, scion Kyonosuke Kawamura has zero motivation. Conversely, Ichiya Sawayama, who was born into a household with no kabuki pedigree whatsoever, is determined to rise on talent alone. The story begins when these two diametrically opposed youths fall in love with the same woman, Ayame Chiba, and then go on to vie with each other to become Pintokona, both as actors and in real life. Sparks fly for these two young men of completely different personalities and circumstance against the colorful backdrop of kabuki in a magnificent tale of love, art and youthful passion.
