Ashi-Girl Manga Gets Sequel Live-Action TV Special
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The first 12-episode series premiered on NHK on September 23.
The series stars Yuina Kuroshima (live-action Sagrada Reset, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) as the main character Yui Hayakawa. Kentarō (Sensei!) co-stars as Tadakiyo Hagikuhachirō, the man Yui meets in the Sengoku Period.
In the story, 16-year-old Yui Hayakawa is prone to being late, losing things, and dozing off, and she has no interest in love or style. One day she accidentally activates a time machine her younger brother Takeru invented and finds herself in the Sengoku Period.
Morimoto's Gokusen and Kōdai-ke no Hitobito manga also inspired live-action television series. Gokusen also received a live-action television special, live-action film, and 13-episode television anime series.
