'The Almost Got Laid Committee' Manga Gets Live-Action Series in January
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Abema TV announced on Friday that it has green-lit a live-action series adaptation of Takashi Yoshida's Yareta kamo Iinkai (The Almost Got Laid Committee) manga. The series will debut on the AbemaTV streaming platform in January, and Ryuuji Akiyama (seen below) will play the character Akira Nōjima.
The manga's story centers on the titular "committee," comprised of a martial artist, a musician, and an executive, who listen to the stories of clients who come in to hear their judgement. Clients come in and tell their stories about their romantic lives, focusing on points where they think they might have had sex, but ended up not doing it. The committee then delivers their judgement on whether or not they think the client might have actually ended up having sex at that point if something had been different.
Yoshida launched the manga in April 2016 on the note website, and he also publishes the series in Shuho Sato's Manga on Web web magazine, and on the websites cake and PixivFANBOX. Yoshida asks readers to send in their own stories, which he then portrays in the manga.
Futabasha published the manga's first compiled volume on June 28.
