Mei-chan no Shitsuji Shōjo Manga to Get TV Drama

posted on by Egan Loo
Story of ordinary girl who inherits vast fortune and handsome butler

A live-action television drama adaptation of Riko Miyagi's Mei-chan no Shitsuji (Mei-chan's Butler) shōjo manga will premiere on Japan's Fuji TV network this January. The manga has been running in Shueisha's Margaret magazine since 2006, and seven volumes have been published.

Actress Nana Eikura (Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru) will play Mei, a ordinary young country girl with vague dreams of a handsome stranger who helped her when she was lost as a child. Mei discovers that she inherited a vast fortune and has to enroll in an elite academy for young ladies of high standing. She meets Rihito, her strikingly handsome, effortlessly capable butler played by Hiro Mizushima (Lovely Complex). Rihito happens to be the stranger from her dreams and the brother of Kento, a boy who has a crush on her. Mei is a middle school student in the manga, although Eikura turned 20 this year.
