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 launched the manga in the inaugural issue of Cocohana in November 2011. Shueisha published the ninth compiled volume on September 25.
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.
