Aya Tsuge's story of female college student's simple life in Tokyo

The Japanese publisher Kodansha has announced on Monday that Aya Tsuge's My Name is Noda. (Noda to Mōshimasu.) manga is being adapted into a live-action television mini-series next month. The story follows the "wonderfully simple life" of a female college student named Noda. Noda goes through most days with jeans and sweatshirts and with no makeup as a freshman studying Russian literature in the fictional Tokyo Heisei University.

The three five-minute episodes will air on the public broadcaster NHK's 1seg 2 digital channel on Saturday afternoons from June 5 to June 19. The original manga runs in Kodansha's Kiss and Kiss Plus women's manga magazines.
