Of Forbidden Love and Rebellion: Japanese School Drama Series 'Chastity High' Premieres August 29

Netflix is set to launch its first original Japanese school drama series, Chastity High, on August 29, promising viewers a sensational telling of love and morality in the modern age.

Set in an ultra-elite high school that imposes a strict ban on dating between boys and girls, the series explores the consequences of forbidden love as a mysterious social media account begins exposing scandalous secrets. Students fight to expose one another as they rebel against the school and its overbearing rules.

Inspired by real-life events where a female student sued her school for expulsion due to violating its stringent regulations on dating a member of the opposite sex, Chastity High incorporates extensive research into Generation Z's perspectives on romance, capturing the essence of contemporary youth culture and their evolving attitudes towards love and relationships.

Headlining the series is Ai Mikami, whose exceptional performances in the Netflix global hit Yu Yu Hakusho and the film Undead Lovers have solidified her as a rising star in the industry. Mikami takes on the role of Ichica Arisawa, who finds herself at the center of a tumultuous conflict fueled by forbidden love and societal expectations.

"She initially had a neutral presence, but once she began acting, the power of her eyes amazed me. I thought she would be a perfect fit to embody the strength required to fight for what you want under difficult circumstances," says Executive Producer Makiko Okano on casting Mikami. "I was also impressed by how innocent and endearing she was during a romantic scene audition. Both the director and I were immediately charmed by her and we decided she just had to be our Ichica!"

Ryubi Miyase (Lovesick Ellie, Kururi Who's in Love with Me) steps into the role of Ryogo Maki, whose journey intertwines with Ichica's.

"Maki is the total opposite of Ichica in that he's not a typical good student," explains Okano. We needed an actor who could authentically portray how his character changes after falling in love. Miyase caught our attention because of his ability to charm audiences across a wide range of roles."

Rediscover the true essence of love with Chastity High on August 29, only on Netflix
