    TBS' Boku Tachi no Senso (Sep 17, 9 p.m.) features a fictional young man, Kenta (Mirai Moriyama), who accidentally slips back in time from 2006 to 1944 shortly after seeing a sudden lightning flash while surfing. Soon he finds he has mysteriously traded places with a young soldier, Goichi (also Moriyama), who was doing flight training over the same area of the sea where Kenta was surfing.Kenta, as a soldier, is then sent to an Imperial Japanese Navy base, where he is assigned to be a pilot for one of the manned torpedoes called Kaiten.Commenting on his role, the actor says: "In our contemporary world of material abundance, it's difficult to know what's most important in our lives. In Kenta's case, he finally realizes how much he loves his girlfriend through his experiences in the war days. I wanted to show his mental changes."Handing down the memories of the war to the next generation is a duty for broadcasters, says Yasuo Yagi, producer of the drama. "Through this drama, I wanted to show people the miseries of the war from the standpoint of powerless common people."
