Saki Aibu (相武紗季),25. has the lead role in an drama series called “Rebound,” airing spring on Wednesday nights at 10:00pm. The show will use special makeup to make Aibu’s character appear to be as heavy as 85 kilograms in weight.

Rebound is an original script by screenwriter Kazuhiko Yukawa, whose past dramas include Magerarenai Onna and Joou no Kyoushitsu.

Aibu plays Nobuko, the daughter of a tonkatsu shop owner who grew up on tonkatsu and cake. As a result, she weighed 60 kilograms by the time she graduated from elementary school, and at age 20 she weighed 85 kilograms. In order to turn her life around, she quits eating cake and sheds 37 kilograms, leading to her current career as the editor of a fashion magazine.


When she goes to interview the “sweet prince,” a fashionable pastry chef played by Mocomichi Hayami (速水もこみち),26, she winds up breaking her ban on cake and begins “rebounding” from her diet. She soon finds herself having to decide between her currently slim lifestyle and a delicious romance with the handsome patissier.
