Haruka Ayase, Yutaka Takenouchi star in Rin Sakurazawa's story about career-minded woman, divorcee father raising daughter

A live-action television series adaptation of Rin Sakurazawa's Gibo to Musume no Blues (A Stepmother and Daughter's Blues) manga has been green-lit. The show will premiere on TBS in July, and will air on Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. Haruka Ayase (left in picture below) plays Akiko, while Yutaka Takenouchi (right) plays Ryōichi.

The four-panel manga begins when Ryōichi Miyamoto, a divorcee and father of an 8-year-old daughter, proposes to and marries Akiko Iwaki, a career-minded 32-year-old woman. Now, with both unaccustomed to household tasks, they must learn on the fly as they raise their daughter.

Yūichirō Hirakawa and Yūji Nakamae are directing the series, while Yoshiko Morishita is penning the script.

Bunkasha published two compiled book volumes for the manga from 2011 to 2012.
