The official website for the live-action series adaptation of Kirin Tendō's Kimi ga Kokoro ni Sumitsuita (You always inhabit my heart) manga revealed additional cast for the show on Tuesday. The additional cast includes:
(From left to right in image above):
- Anna Ishibashi as Ayaka Iida, a girl who works in the same materials department of the lingerie company where Kyōko works.
- Tsuyoshi Muro as Jirō Suzuki, the manga creator whose manga Yoshizaki edits, and who pays a visit to Kyōko's company for research on his manga.
- Asaka Seto as Maiko Hotta, Kyōko's big-sisterly senior that recognizes Kyōko's talents.
- Sarina Suzuki as Izumi Yagi, a designer who speaks in her native harshly-worded Kansai dialect.
The previously announced cast includes:
Kenta Kiritani as Kōjirō Yoshizaki, a manga editor and who always speaks frankly.
Osamu Mukai as Ren Hoshina, Kyōko's senior from college, and the source of Kyōko's trauma.
The series will premier on TBS in January, and it will air on Tuesdays 10:00 p.m. Ryōsuke Fukuda is directing the show, with scripts by Tomoko Yoshizawa and Kōji Tokuo.
The manga centers on Kyōko "Kyodoko" Ogawa, a woman with a low opinion of herself, still recovering from a bad relationship she had with a senior in college. She meets a manga editor named Yoshizaki at a company mixer and suddenly asks him out, but he refuses her. She resolves to change herself, but Kyōko's old senior, Hoshina, re-enters her life.
The manga launched in Kodansha's Kiss Plus magazine in February 2011, where it ran until August 2012. It then transferred to Shodensha's Feel Young magazine in October 2012, with a relaunched title of Kimi ga Kokoro ni Sumitsuita S. Kodansha published three compiled book volumes for the original series from 2012 to 2013, and Shodensha reprinted the series in two volumes, both released on November 20. Shodensha published the fifth volume of the Kimi ga Kokoro ni Sumitsuita S series on February 8.
