Since this drama will have a new cast for each episode he will only be appearing in the 7th episode that will air on August 23rd. The title of the episode is Shiroi Kyouki and stars Todo Erika.

I am so happy for Senga to make his drama debut finally. And since the episode he will be in has Todo Erika I have no reason not to watch it. It will probably be the only episode of the series I will watch but since everything sounds self-contained I think people just watching an episode for a certain actor was expected.
But I think this fits well for how Kis-My-Ft2 is starting to be promoted, with KiFT still being the main focus but Miyata Toshiya and Senga now getting promotion and some focus. While it is not perfect as it means Yokoo Wataru and Nikaido Takashi are still stuck being in the background with nothing to really help them stand out, it is still a step in the right direction. Plus who is to say that a couple years in the future Yokoo and Nikaido will still not have been given chances to stand out and have people notice them.
