posted on by Karen Ressler
Kaoru Fukaya's KANNAsa-n! manga is inspiring a live-action television series adaptation. The series will premiere in July and air on Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. on TBS. Naomi Watanabe will star in the series as the title character.
The story centers on its straightforward and energetic protagonist Kanna Suzuki, who remains happy even with an unreasonable boss and a no-good husband and mother-in-law. She is a "super housewife" who takes care of the house and raises her kids while working as a fashion designer.
The original manga ran in Shueisha's YOU magazine from 2001 to 2007. The manga is a sequel to Fukaya's one-volume manga Marigold and it was followed by the three-volume sequel series KANNAsa-n! Arafō-hen (Around 40 Edition).
