Tokyo Friends

Tokyo Friends (東京フレンズ) is a Japanese DVD-only release dorama that spanned 5 episodes over 3 volumes and a boxset that included all 3 volumes. This series also marks the acting debut of Japanese pop singer-songwriter, Otsuka Ai.


Otsuka Ai plays Iwatsuki Rei, a girl who moves from her hometown to Tokyo in pursuit of her dreams. On arrival, she finds a job as a waitress in a restaurant and meets guitarist Shintani Ryuuji. Shintani takes a liking to her voice and invites her to join his band as the vocalist, Survival Company (a.k.a Sabakan).
