Live-Action Drama of Fragile Medical Manga Green-Lit
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The December issue of Kodansha's Afternoon magazine is announcing on October 24 that a live-action television drama adaptation of Bin Kusamizu and Saburō Megumi's Fragile - Byōrii Kishi Keiichirō no Shoken (Fragile - The Finds of Pathologist Keiichirō Kishi) has been green-lit. (Note: the image on the cover of the magazine pictured at right is not from the Fragile - Byōrii Kishi Keiichirō no Shoken manga.)
The original manga centers around Keiichirō Kishi, a pathologist who advises doctors on their diagnoses and whose judgement is greatly trusted. Often, doctors remark that he is an eccentric person, but is good at what he does.
Kusamizu and Megumi launched the manga in Afternoon magazine in 2014. Kodansha published the manga's third compiled book volume on July 23, and will publish the fourth volume on October 23 (see gallery below).
