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.
