Tumbling – New drama of men’s rhythmic gymnastics starring Yusuke Yamamoto

This spring, TBS will explore the world of men’s rhythmic gymnastics with a new drama series titled “Tumbling.” The show will feature a cast of popular young actors, led by Yusuke Yamamoto (22) in his first lead role in a series.

Yamamoto plays a high school delinquent who has a weakness for women. When an attractive transfer student (Azusa Okamoto) joins the women’s rhythmic gymnastics team, he responds by joining the men’s team and soon discovers a passion for the sport. Since last fall, Yamamoto has been undergoing special gymnastics training for the role.

Although men’s rhythmic gymnastics originated in Japan, the sport is still dominated by women. It is estimated that there are only about a thousand men involved in the sport competitively.

The supporting cast of “Tumbling” includes Koji Seto, Shohei Miura, Shunsuke Daito, Takahiro Nishijima, Satoshi Tomiura, Tomo Yanagishita, Kento Kaku, Soran Tamoto, Rei Okamoto, Jiro Sato, Ryoko Kuninaka, and Nene Otsuka.

  1. This show is seriously amazing, in every possible way I can think of! An exceptional cast (and lots of pretty boys :P), a great storyline, great music, etc. I can’t find anything wrong with it! At first I thought it would be boring because I thought it would only be about tumbling, but the storyline is fast-paced and there’s just so much to it that every minute of the show is interesting. I just [I]love[/I] it and wish it weren’t already over… ._.

    But for the record, me and a couple of other Tumbling fans put together a roleplay site where you can play as one of your favorite characters (or make your own)! It’s just so that we can keep Tumbling going, even though the show is already over! 😀 If you’re interested, we love to have other fans join us! You can check us out here:
