Setoutsumi Live-Action Series Casts Yūki Morinaga, Yūki Katayama

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Cast visuals also revealed for series premiering in October

The official website for the live-action television series adaptation of Kazuya Konomoto's Setoutsumi manga revealed new cast members and cast visuals on Monday. The newly revealed cast includes:

Yūki Morinaga as Shinji Tanaka

Yuki Katayama as Hatsumi

The previously announced cast includes:

Mahiro Takasugi as Utsumi

Shōno Hayama as Seto

Kaya Kiyohara as Ichigo Kashimura

The cast is different from the live-action film adaptation of the manga that opened in Japan last year.

The adaptation will air on TV Tokyo late at night starting on October 13.

The manga revolves around Kansai-area high school boys Seto and Utsumi, particularly their completely normal but comedic chats after school.

Tatsushi Ōmori (Germanium no Yoru, The Ravine of Goodbye) directed the film, which opened in Japan in July 2016. The film starred Sousuke Ikematsu as Utsumi and Masaki Suda as Seto.

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.
