A live-action television series adaptation of Naoko Matsuda's Jūhan Shuttai! (Second Print Run Confirmed!) manga has been green-lit. The show will premiere on TBS in April on Tuesdays.

The show's cast includes:

Haru Kuroki as protagonist and newbie editor Kokoro Kurosawa

Joe Odagiri as "Vibes" magazine editor-in-chief candidate Kei Iokibe

Kentaro Sakaguchi as sales department staff member Jun Koizumi

Yutaka Matsushige as "Vibes" magazine editor-in-chief Yasuki Wada

Yoshiyoshi Arakawa as Heita Mipu

Fumiyo Kohinata as Ryū Mikurayama

Kenichi Takito as Issun Takehata

Jun Kaname as Meronnu Narita

Kento Nagayama as Haku Nakata

Muro Tsuyoshi as Wataru Numata

Junji Takada as Masaru Kuji

Ken Yasuda as Noboru Yasui

Nobuhiro Doi (Flying Colors, Season of the Sun) is directing the series, with scripts by Akiko Nogi (Toshokan Sensō Book of Memories, Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku).

The manga focuses on the people involved in a manga magazine named "Vibes": creators who publish their manga, editors, salespeople, advertisers, plate-makers, printers, designers, distributors, and booksellers. The manga follows the workers who are involved in each stage of a manga's production that will influence how it will sell, until the final product is delivered to the consumer.

Matsuda launched the manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Spirits magazine in 2012. Shogakukan published the manga's sixth compiled book volume last November. The manga was nominated for the 18th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize "Reader Award" in 2014.
