posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it will add the live-action television series Forget Me Not. The first of four episodes will be available today at 10:00 p.m. EDT, and then a new episode will be available every day at 10:00 p.m. EDT. Crunchyroll is offering the show to users in the United States, Canada, Central and South America, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
Crunchyroll describes the series:
A light, sometimes wistful, sometimes stimulating depiction of the kinds of relationship ups and downs that everyone's gone through at least once. Koide Keisuke plays a lovable loser who you just can't hate. The story of an awkward guy with terrible relationship skills and the four women he dates.
The series' cast includes:
- Keisuke Koide as Serizawa
- Yurina Yanagi as Ermes
- Itsuki Sagara as Tsukushi Makino
- Erika Okuda as Sam-soon
- Izumi Fujimoto as "Mysterious Nurse"
The series premiered in Japan on Fuji TV on Monday, and will air for four consecutive nights. Pop group Cross Gene contributed their song "sHi-tai!" as the series' theme song.
The series adapts Nao Emoto's Forget Me Not (Soredemo Boku wa Kimi ga Suki) manga, which in turn adapts Mag Hsu's Taiwanese novel Mǎzimen. Emoto launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine in December 2013, and then switched the series to Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2014. Kodansha published the fifth compiled volume in July.
North American manga publisher Kodansha Comics announced in July that it licensed the manga and plans to release the first volume in English in March 2016.
