posted on by Karen Ressler
Yuma Ando and Masashi Asaki's Debusen ("Fat Chaser") manga will get a live-action drama adaptation. The six-episode series will be a Hulu exclusive and will stream this summer.
This year's 29th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine announced on Monday that the series would have an "important announcement" in the next issue on June 27.
Asaki (Kunimitsu no Matsuri, Shibatora) began the manga based on a story by Ando (also known as Tadashi Agi and other pen names; author of Kindaichi Case Files, Getbackers, The Drops of God, Bloody Monday, The Knight in the Area) on the MangaBox website in March 2014, and it moved to Weekly Young Magazine in fall of the same year. The manga is a spinoff of Ando and Asaki's Psychometrer manga, which is also currently serialized in Weekly Young Magazine. Kodansha will ship the seventh compiled volume of Debusen on July 6.
The school comedy focuses on the Psychometrer character Mitsuru Fukushima, who has fallen into debt because of his love of cosplay. He plans to commit suicide in the forest around Mount Fuji, but he encounters the dead body of a female teacher named Mitsuko Fukushima who looks just like him. He begins life anew in women's clothing, helping to reform delinquent students.
