Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou Gag Manga Gets Live-Action Film
posted on by Justin Piselli
The official Twitter for author Ipyao and artist Yūjirō Koyama's Tonkatsu DJ Agetarō manga announced on Thursday that the manga will receive a live-action film. Additional information about the staff and cast will be announced soon.
To commemorate the announcement of the live-action film, Shonen Jump+ will publish two new one-shot manga by Yūjirō Koyama. The first, "Gattobe! Home Runnosuke," is available now and the second will debut next week.
The gag manga follows Agetarō Katsumata, a stupid but honest guy whose family has run a tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlet) restaurant for three generations. He's also a beginner club DJ.
The manga series began weekly serialization in Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app in November 2014 and ended in March. Shortly after it debuted, a panel from the comic went viral. The panel, pictured below, features the main character having an epiphany that "tonkatsu cooks and DJs are the same" and makes a pun on "flyer" (for an event) and "fryer" (at a restaurant). The 11th and final compiled volume shipped on Thursday.
