Hirochi Maki's Kichijōji dake ga Sumitai Machi Desu ka? Manga Gets Live-Action Series

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Series about Kichijōji real estate agents stars Natsu Andō, Miyuki Ōshima; premieres on October 14

A live-action series adaptation of Hirochi Maki's Kichijōji dake ga Sumitai Machi Desu ka? (Is Kichijoji the Only Place to Live?) manga has been green-lit. The show will premiere on TV Tokyo on October 14 at 12:52 a.m. The show will star comedians Natsu Andō and Miyuki Ōshima as the twin sister protagonists Miyako and Tomiko Shigeta.

The manga's story centers on twin sisters Miyako and Tomiko Shigeta, who work as real estate agents in the Kichijōji neighborhood in Tokyo, an area that is consistently ranked #1 as the place where those already living in Tokyo want to live. The sisters assist women searching for an apartment, but direct them to neighborhoods in Tokyo aside from Kichijōji. The story follows the worries of new clients as they move, and showcases the charm of Tokyo neighborhoods.

The series will feature real homes and shops in Tokyo, and characters will interact with real people living the neighborhoods.

Maki launched the manga in Kodansha's Young Magazine the 3rd last year. Kodansha published the manga's second compiled book volume on March 9.

Maki's Itsuka Tiffany de Chōshoku o manga previously inspired a live-action television series last October.
