Shinya no Damekoi Zukan Manga About Carousing Women Gets Live-Action Series
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account of Ira Ozaki's Shinya no Damekoi Zukan (The Guide to Late Night Bad Love) manga announced on Thursday that the manga will get a live-action television series that will premiere on ABC TV and Asahi TV in October. Ozaki drew an illustration with a message to commemorate the announcement.
The series will star Fumika Baba as Madoka Koga, Hinako Sano as Sawako Chidori, and Ikumi Hisamatsu as Chiyo Fukuma.
The manga centers on three women: Madoka Koga, who maintains her fierce attitude from her delinquent days, but is still a virgin; Chiyo Fukuma, a woman who treats shōjo manga as bibles for romance; and Sawako Chidori, a woman who can't help but always fall for poor excuses for men. The manga centers on the three women who meet each other while carousing at night, telling each other bad stories of men they have met or dated.
Ozaki published the manga in tankōbon form first in April 2015. She launched a serialization of the manga in Shogakukan's Petit Comic magazine in October of that same year. Shogakukan published the manga's third compiled book volume last September, and will publish the fourth volume on July 10. The manga ranked #2 in Honya Club "Zenkoku Shotenin ga Eranda Osusume Comic 2017" (Nationwide Bookstore Employees' Recommended Comics of 2017) poll last year.
