posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 20th issue of Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine revealed on Wednesday that Masakazu Yamaguchi's (Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gōtaman) Furin Shokudō (Adultery Restaurant) manga is getting a live-action drama adaptation. The issue didn't state whether the adaptation will be a special or series, or if it will air on TV or stream online.
The manga centers on 35-year-old businessman Ryūichi Yamadera. Ryūichi travels around the country on business trips, and his sole pastime is trying different foods at local restaurants. He also ends up sleeping with the various married women he meets at the restaurants, while also being married himself.
Yamaguchi launched the manga in early 2016, and Shogakukan published the manga's fourth compiled volume on June 19. The manga's fifth compiled volume shipped on Tuesday.
Yamaguchi's Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gōtaman manga inspired the Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gōtaman: Gōtaman Tanjō-hen (Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman) OVA and the Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gōtaman R: Ai to Kanashimi no Final Battle (Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman R) OVA in 1994. Tokyopop released his nine-volume Arm of Kannon manga in 2004-2007.
