The visual-kei band Versailles will act in a television show for the first time. “Onegai Kanaete Versailles” is a late-night mini-drama that will air in a 5-minute time slot on MBS (local station in Nagoya) and tvk (local station in Yokohama), starting in January 2011.

Versailles (known as Versailles -Philharmonic Quintet- in the United States) is a Japanese metal band formed in 2007. It is composed of several notable figures in the visual kei scene. Versailles’ key characteristics are their rococo-esque costumes, dueling guitar sounds and heavy but melodic arrangements.

The TV show stars Rina Koike (17) as a poor but pure girl named Rina Fukurokoujo. One day a group of “princes” (played by Versailles) appear before her to grant her every wish, no matter how unreasonable. There will be an element of comedy in their various missions, including one where they must serve as babysitters.

Versailles will provide the show’s theme song “Philia,” which they plan to release as a single on March 16.

“Onegai Kanaete Versailles” will air on MBS on Monday nights at 2:20am, starting January 17. tvk will broadcast the show on Friday nights at 12:30am, starting January 21.
