Publisher Akita Shoten announced on Tuesday that Kazuya Konomoto's Setoutsumi manga is getting a live-action television series. The new adaptation will feature a different cast than the live-action film adaptation that opened in Japan last year.
The new adaptation stars:
Mahiro Takasugi as Utsumi
Shōno Hayama as Seto
The adaptation will air on TV Tokyo late at night starting in October.
Konomoto launched Setoutsumi in Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Shōnen Champion magazine in 2013. Akita Shoten published the seventh volume on April 7. The manga was nominated for the 18th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize "Reader Award" in 2014.
