Honey and Clover Manga Gets TV Drama Adaptation

posted on by Egan Loo
15-year-old Riko Narumi will star in the live-action television drama adaptation of Chica Umino's Honey and Clover manga, which will premiere on January 8. Umino's manga about five teenagers' road to adulthood has sold 8.13 million copies. 23-year-old Tōma Ikuta (Hana Yori Dango 2's Junpei) of the Johnny's Jr. idol talent firm will play the art student Yuuta opposite Narumi, who will play the talented but shy Hagumi. The manga already inspired two anime series and a live-action movie, all of which Viz has licensed for North America. Honey and Clover is the latest shōjo manga to get a live-action series after a hit anime. Source: Sankei Sports
