The live-action television adaptation of Masayuki Qusumi and Jiro Taniguchi's Kodoku no Gourmet (Solitary Gourmet) food manga will return for a fourth season. The manga follows a solitary salesman named Goro Inagashira as he travels all over Japan and samples the local cuisine found on street corners. The 12-episode second season aired from October to December 2012, and the 10-episode third season aired from July-September last year.
The fourth season will premiere on TV Tokyo on July 9. Yutaka Matsushige (Sukiyaki Western Django, Crows Zero) will again star as Goro in the series. The fourth season will again feature music by Qusumi's musical group The Screen Tones, which Qusumi formed specifically for the series. Shōji Kawamura will again produce the series.
Fusosha's Weekly Spa! magazine and its other publications have been serializing the manga on an irregular basis since 1994. Only one book volume has been compiled so far, but its various editions have sold more than 200,000 copies. JManga had published some of the original manga in English before shutting down last year.
