Live-Action Furin Shokudō Series Reveals Main Cast

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
4-episode net series debuts on March 7

The staff of the live-action adaptation of Masakazu Yamaguchi's (Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gōtaman) Furin Shokudō (Adultery Restaurant) manga revealed the show's main cast, net series format, and episode count on Monday.

The show stars Kei Tanaka (live-action Library Wars' Mikihisa Komaki) as salaryman Ryūichi Yamadera.

The female stars include:

Yumi Adachi as Ayano, who will appear in episode 1

Anna Konno as Mai, who will appear in episode 2

Mai Hakase as Sonoko, who will appear in episode 3

Mayuko Iwasa as Azusa, who will appear in episode 4

The four-episode series will stream on Fuji-on-Demand starting on March 7. Kensaku Sawada is directing the series, and Tatsuya Kanazawa is writing the scripts.

The manga centers on 35-year-old businessman Ryūichi Yamadera. Ryūichi travels around the country on business trips, and his sole pastime is trying different foods at local restaurants. He also ends up sleeping with the various married women he meets at the restaurants, while also being married himself.

Yamaguchi launched the manga in Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine in early 2016, and Shogakukan published the manga's sixth compiled volume on Monday.

Yamaguchi's Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gōtaman manga inspired the Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gōtaman: Gōtaman Tanjō-hen (Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman) OVA and the Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gōtaman R: Ai to Kanashimi no Final Battle (Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman R) OVA in 1994. Tokyopop released his nine-volume Arm of Kannon manga in 2004-2007.
