In case there was any doubt that Kuya was the “ensemble darkhorse” of Indigo no Yoru… there’s now going to be El Dorado no Yoru. All about guess whom.
So there’d been talk on Tokuyama Hidenori’s blog of a “Kuya revival” and that more details would be forthcoming. Well, the details came. They’re calling it a special drama, sort of a spin-off drama for Indigo no Yoru; but there’s no mention of anyone involved yet other than Hide, so I have no idea what it actually IS. But there is a screening in Nagoya on September 19th. What I’m not sure about is whether the screening is sort of a pilot to test the waters or whether it means it’s more like a movie and hence that’s all there will be to it or what.
I’m sure there’s more information that can be gleaned by people whose Japanese is better than mine, so I appreciate any help from anyone that can get a better sense of what the announcements say.

Can I just say that if there’s one thing I’m hoping for, it’s for Yuya to at least have a cameo? :D;
ETA: Apparently it is a one shot thing, that will be shown only at that screening in Nagoya. Hopefully they’ll release it on a DVD one can actually buy as opposed to just… being handed out to the people at the event. (Thanks to Athena8 for the quickie translation!)
