Manga inspired live-action film, live-action series adaptations

Rie Aruga's posted on Twitter on April 11 that her Perfect World manga is heading toward its "final stage."

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally in English, and describes the story:

26-year-old Tsugumi Kawana reunites with her first crush from high school, Itsuki Ayukawa, at a get-together between an architecture firm and the interior design company she works at. He sends her heart aflutter, until she realizes he's now disabled, and in a wheelchair. At first she feels she couldn't date a guy in a wheelchair, but then her feelings begin to change …

Aruga launched the manga in Kiss magazine in February 2015. The manga was nominated earlier this month for Kodansha's 43rd annual Manga Awards.

A live-action film adaptation opened in Japan last October. The film earned 17,380,800 yen (about US$153,800) to rank #4 in its opening weekend. A live-action series adaptation of the manga premiered on Fuji TV and Kansai TV on Tuesday.
