Really Netflix, you take 7 months to release the anime but release the live action version in less than 5 months. I do hope Netflix or someone can get the live action Ajin movie.

This is not being dubbed, so that must make it quicker to release. Though I'm surprised that it is not being dubbed, wasn't there some rule that every Netflix exclusive, regardless of id they were or not, had to be dubbed in every language?

The 10-episode show premiered in Japan on MBS on January 14, and on TBS on January 16. Tsutomu Hanabusa (Heroine Shikkaku, Asahinagu) directed the series.

The usual Jdrama groups have worked on it since it aired on JP TV and i have to say, Tsutomu's decision to adapt the anime/manga style 1:1 just doesn't work. OMG the entire live action show is just terribly, horribly, cheesy. Or maybe it does work in super derpy campy twist.

It's also available in the Philippines. Also, show is pretty fun, especially if you are a fan of the actors. Can't stop doing Kamen Rider and Super Sentai jokes while watching the drama.

Netflix is iffy on dubbing Japanese live action. Some shows/movies do get dubbed, others don't.

IDK, I though it was pretty good, as far as live-action adaptations go. In this case, all the funny faces were supposed to be cheesy.
