Meet the new characters and their profile below:
Toyama Akane is a high school girl from another who meets Yamato, Kakeru, and the others on a group date and is attracted to Kakeru. She’s not the type to stand out but she has a calm aura that makes her easy to talk to. She becomes close to Kakeru after going on a blind date, but…?
Oohara Mikoto is Yamato’s younger sister. Like her older brother, she has a poker face and a cool personality. Because they are siblings, she knows Yamato’s tendency to hold back his feelings, which worries her. She is a kind girl who cares about her brother and watches over his relationship with Kakeru.
Murasen is Yamato and Kakeru’s homeroom and mathematics teacher. Although he sometimes warns them harshly, he cares deeply for his students. Although he is well-liked by them, he is also considered to be hot-tempered and annoying.
‘I Cannot Reach You’ is scheduled to premiere on September 26th on the local channel TBS’ late-night time slot, Drama Stream. It has been decided that it will be streaming in advance on Netflix Japan starting from September 19. Please stay tuned to BLtai for further updates regarding its international release!
