A live-action drama adaptation based on Nobuyuki Fukumoto's Ten: Tenhō Dōri no Kaidanji manga has been green-lit. It will air this fall on BS Japan, and also stream on the Paravi streaming service.
The drama will reunite the staff for the live-action series adaptation of Fukumoto's Gin to Kin manga. Gorō Kishitani (pictured above) will play the lead character Takashi Ten.
The manga begins when Hiroyuki Igawa, a mahjong player who makes money by betting against amateurs, meets Takashi Ten, an opponent with a lot of skill and strength of will. The manga serialized from 1989 to 2002 in Takeshobo's Kindai Mahjong magazine.
