    The third film produced for Fuji TV’s popular program Mezamashi Doyoubi, Island Times is a subtle, observant, and affecting coming-of-age story. Directed by Fukagawa Yoshihiro (Okami Shojo), the film follows the insecurities of youth and the blooming relationship between a wide-eyed teenager and a city girl portrayed by newcomers Yanagisawa Daisuke and Naka Riisa (My Boss My Hero). With a fresh young cast and beautiful location shooting, Island Times spins an unexpectedly rewarding story with its quiet acting and keenly identifiable sentiments.

    Fifteen-year-old Masaharu (Yanagisawa Daisuke) lives on the small island of Aogashima, which has a population of 197. On the island, life is simple and facilities are spare. As there are no high schools on the island, Masaharu, in his final year of junior high, will be leaving for Tokyo after he graduates. He is the editor of Blue Island Times, the local newspaper he started with a friend, who has hit on hard times in Tokyo. One day, Yuki (Naka Riisa) transfers from the city to his island school, and Masaharu is immediately smitten. As the two grow closer, Masaharu discovers his new friend’s secret… -yesasia
