Natsumi Abe on "Arakawa under the Bridge"

Natsumi Abe to star in a manga-adapted film "Arakawa Under the Bridge" as P-ko.

As taken from Wikipedia, P-ko is a a young red-haired girl who grows vegetables for the village. The epitome of a klutzy girl, she is literally dangerously clumsy, often turning what should be a simple accident into a massive disaster. Despite an allusion to mishaps, P-ko is still intent on getting a drivers license so that she can travel further during Winter to gather seeds. Kou is strongly against this and in their argument he learns much to his horror that she already possesses a motorcycle license. It is implied she has a crush on the village chief.

Arakawa Under the Bridge is about a young man named "Kou", who accidentally fell from a bridge and was rescued by a girl named "Nino". Wanting to repay her, she ended-up telling him to love her. And that's when his life under the bridge started, where society of weirdos called "denpasan" live including P-ko.

Live-Action Film will be released in Japanese cinemas in the Spring of 2011.
