Manga inspires new live-action drama, with live-action film this year

The March issue of Kodansha's Kiss magazine revealed on Monday that Yumiko Suzuki is drawing a one-shot manga for her Shiratori Reiko de Gozaimasu! (I'm Reiko Shiratori!) manga, which Kodansha will publish in the magazine's next issue on February 25. The story will depict Reiko and Tetsuya, who are now in their 40s.

The original manga series follows the rich, beautiful, and stuck-up Reiko Shiratori, who has been in love with her friend Tetsuya Akimoto since childhood.

Suzuki launched the original seven-volume manga in Kodansha's mimi magazine in 1988. She launched a sequel manga titled Shin Shiratori Reiko de Gozaimasu! (New I Am Reiko Shiratori!) in 1992, but the manga remains unfinished. The manga previously inspired two live-action TV series in 1989 and 1993, as well as a live-action film in 1995. The manga also inspired a 40-minute OVA in 1990. The series is inspiring a new live-action television drama and film. The drama premiered in Japan on January 14. The live-action film will open this year.
