A live-action film and television series adaptation of Ema Toyama's Missions of Love (Watashi ni xx Shinasai!) romantic comedy manga has been green-lit. Tina Tamashiro (left in picture below) will play Yukina, and Yūta Koseki (right) will play Shigure. Tōru Yamamoto is directing the film and series. The series premieres this spring, while the film opens this summer.
Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in North America and it describes the story:
Cell phone novelist Yukina Himuro has decided that in order to satisfy her fans' demand for love stories, she must experience romance firsthand. But with her icy reputation, how can she find someone willing to play the part of boyfriend? By blackmailing the most popular boy in school, of course!
Toyama launched the award-winning manga in Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine in 2009, and ended it in June 2015. Kodansha published 19 compiled book volumes for the manga. Kodansha Comics published the manga's 14th volume last May.
Kodansha Comics also released Toyama's Manga Dogs, I Am Here!, and Shugo Chara-chan! manga. Tokyopop previously published Toyama's Pixie Pop: Gokkun Pucho manga.
