The Writer’s Personal Thoughts About the Miura Haruma Shows Suggested and the Actor

I became a Miura Haruma fan when I first watched his fim "Koizora" or "Sky of life". I instantly fell in love with him. I also think that "Koizora" is Haruma's great work up to date. His reputation might have been tainted because of the unsuccessful live-action adaptation of Attack on Titan. However, I greatly suggest to also watch the other four listed especially “Boku no Ita Jikan”. He really portrayed his character well in that drama.

Aside from being active in TV shows and films, he is also active in stageplay musicals. As of this writing, he is currently working on a stageplay musical now together with Oshima Yuko called "Crime and Punishment". Then. he'll be busy with one more stageplay musical which is "Kinky Boots" this coming Spring season. He will play as Lola again in the play.

I hope you'll enjoy watching his shows and that you'll become a fan of him too!

Fav film of his is Kimi no Todoke. He's so so sweet in that, and I love his chemistry with Tabe Mikako.

Poppy from Enoshima, Japan on January 26, 2019:

I grieved for three days after watching Koizora. It's one of my favourite Japanese films of all time and Miura is a babe.
