Live-action series adapts Hiroyuki Nishimori's high school comedy manga

The official website for the live-action television series of Hiroyuki Nishimori's Kyou Kara Ore Wa!! gag comedy manga revealed more guest cast members for the series on Monday. The guest cast members will appear in roles throughout the show until the final episode.

The guest cast includes:

  • Top row left to right: Hirofumi Arai, Nobue Iketani, Shun Oguri, Haruka Shimazaki
  • Middle row left to right: Katsumi Takahashi, Shinichi Tsutsumi, Jun Hashimoto, Minami Hamabe
  • Bottom row left to right: Yuuya Yagira, Kento Yamazaki, Takayuki Yamada, Ayumu Yokoyama

The site previously revealed a different guest cast list for the show's "enemy" characters last week.

The series will premiere on NTV's Nichiyō Drama time slot on October 14. The new series marks the first live-action adaptation for the manga in about 21 years.

Yūichi Fukuda (live-action Gintama, HK/Hentai Kamen, Super Salaryman Mr. Saenai) is directing the series.

The manga's story centers on the blond delinquent high school student Takashi Mitsuhashi. He is sly and holds "Whatever I do, I'll win!" as his creed. He forms a duo with Shinji Itō, a fellow high school student who is serious and dutiful with a strong sense of justice.

Nishimori's series ran in Shogakukan's Zōkan Shonen Sunday and Weekly Shonen Sunday magazines from 1988 to 1997. The series' 38 compiled book volumes have a total of more than 40 million copies in print.

The manga inspired an original video anime series in 1992, and Toei released a V-Cinema direct-to-video live-action series inspired by the manga from 1992 to 1997. The V-Cinema series' cast and staff also reprised their roles for a live-action film adaptation that debuted in 1994.
