The official Twitter account for the live-action television series of Hiromi Ōkubo's Setsuyaku Rock (Rock Savings) manga announced three additional cast members on Monday:

Mina Fujii as Makiko Ōguro, Takao's ex-girlfriend

Ayaka Wilson as Rin Shiina, a returnee from America and Takao's junior at his company

Takashi Ukaji as Keizō Kuwata, a commercial creator whom Takao admires

As previously announced, KAT-TUN member Tatsuya Ueda (right below) is starring in the series as Takao. Johnny's West member Daiki Shigeoka (left below) co-stars as Kōta Inaba, Takao's handsome rival. Hayashi Mori is penning the scripts, and Hidehiro Kawai is composing the music. Kaku Mizuno, Atsushi Okamoto, and Kai Ōe are directing the series.

The show will premiere on NTV on January 21 at 24:59 (effectively January 22 at 12:59 a.m.).

The comedy manga centers on Takao Matsumoto, a 30-year-old bachelor who has no savings and loves rock music. The original manga ran in Kodansha's Morning magazine in 2017, and Kodansha published the one compiled volume on January 23.

Ōkubo's Hito wa Mita Me ga 100 Percent (Woman's All About the Looks.) manga inspired a live-action television series that premiered on Fuji TV in April 2017.
