This year's ninth issue of Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine is revealing on Friday that Nanki Satō and Akira Kiduki's Usotsuki Paradox manga will get a live-action film adaptation. More details about the adaptation will be revealed in future issues of Young Animal.
The manga revolves around Shunsuke Yōkadō, a salaryman who is in love with his coworker, Hinako Seiyū. Hinako, however, is currently in a long-distance relationship. One day while working overtime, the atmosphere between the two changes and Hinako and Shunsuke almost engage in an affair, but Hinako stops them. After that incident, a new strange relationship between Hinako and Shunsuke is born, where the two often keep each other company to fill their loneliness.
The wife-husband team behind Ichigo no Gakkō, Maid Shokun!, Manman-chan, An., and Megane × Parfait! launched the 10-volume series in 2009, and Hakusensha published the final volume last June. The manga has more than 400,000 copies in print.
