Kaho Tsuchimura, Yasushi Fuchikami also star in April TV series

The staff of the live-action television series adaptation of Akira Fujiwara's Koi ga Heta demo Ikitemasu (I'm Bad at Love But I'm Living) manga announced the main cast on Saturday. The adaptation stars Rin Takanashi as the protagonist Misa Chigasaki, Kei Tanaka as Keisuke Ojima, Kaho Tsuchimura as Misa's roommate Chihiro Enomoto, and Yasushi Fuchikami as Misa's workplace rival Tsukasa Hashimoto.

The staff also announced that the series will premiere on NTV on April 6 at 11:59 p.m. and air on Thursdays.

The manga's story centers on Misa, a career-minded woman who works in the sales department of her company. She works hard, and often puts in an effort to make herself look beautiful. But she actually has no experience in romance. She can't act cute, she's bad at inviting people to outings, and she's too prideful. All the men she meets end up backing away from her. Her roommate and close friend Chihiro is a department store receptionist. She is good with kids, likes housework, and is passionate about her volunteer work; the exact opposite of Misa. They live together like sisters. But a change is coming to their lives when Misa meets the man of her dreams. Meanwhile, Chihiro is apparently having an affair behind her long-time fiancé's back.

In the series' first episode, Misa vies for the position of company president. However, her dream is crushed when Ojima, a professional who was working in New York, returns and takes the position.

Fujiwara launched the manga in Petit Comic in February 2008, and ended it in November 2009. Shogakukan published four compiled book volumes for the series.
