Series about woman who eats to forget relationship woes premieres in October

The official Twitter account for the live-action special of Jun Abe's Bōkyaku no Sachiko (Forgetful Sachiko) manga revealed on Monday that the manga will get a full live-action series adaptation that will premiere on TV Tokyo in October. Mitsuki Takahata (seen below) will reprise her role as main character Sachiko Sasaki.

Santa Yamagishi also returns as director, alongside Sōichi Ishii and Kazumasa Nemoto. Yamagishi is also now credited as scriptwriter, alongside returning scriptwriter Satomi Ooshima, and new scriptwriter Kyōko Inukai.

The previous live-action special premiered on TV Tokyo earlier this year on January 2.

The gourmet comedy manga centers on Sachiko Sasaki, a 29-year-old editor of a literary magazine. At work, she has a respected reputation as a strict perfectionist, but on her wedding day, her husband-to-be Shungo runs away on her. Now Sachiko seeks out gourmet food in order to forget about Shungo.

Abe launched the manga in Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits magazine in August 2014. Shogakukan published the manga's 10th compiled book volume in June 2017.

Viz Media published Abe's Portus manga in 2007.
