Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo Manga Gets Live-Action Show
The 29th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that a live-action adaptation of Miki Yoshikawa's Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo manga has been green-lit. The drama is scheduled to begin airing in Japan on the Fuji TV channel on August 10 at 11:10 PM, and will air every Saturday.
The story of the original manga begins when high-school boy Yamada bumps into the beautiful girl Shiraishi on the stairs, and their lips touch as they fall. When they regain their wits, they realize that they have swapped bodies. As time progresses, the two realize that this is not the only mysterious happening in the school.
Yoshikawa launched her Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo manga last February, and the series is currently running in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine. Kodansha will publish the seventh volume of the manga on Monday.
Yoshikawa's Yankee-kun to Megane-chan also inspired a live-action television series. The show starred Hiroki Narimiya (Gokusen, Akihabara @ DEEP, NANA) as Daichi and Riisa Naka (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Kami no Shizuku) as Hana. The television series ran from April to June of 2010.
