Nanki Satō, Akira Kiduki's 10-volume manga revolves around salaryman in love with his coworker

This year's ninth issue of Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine is revealing on Friday that Nanki Satō and Akira Kiduki's Usotsuki Paradox manga will get a live-action film adaptation. More details about the adaptation will be revealed in future issues of Young Animal.

The manga revolves around Shunsuke Yōkadō, a salaryman who is in love with his coworker, Hinako Seiyū. Hinako, however, is currently in a long-distance relationship. One day while working overtime, the atmosphere between the two changes and Hinako and Shunsuke almost engage in an affair, but Hinako stops them. After that incident, a new strange relationship between Hinako and Shunsuke is born, where the two often keep each other company to fill their loneliness.

The wife-husband team behind Ichigo no Gakkō, Maid Shokun!, Manman-chan, An., and Megane × Parfait! launched the 10-volume series in 2009, and Hakusensha published the final volume last June. The manga has more than 400,000 copies in print.
