Dōse Mō Nigerarenai Manga by Socrates in Love Artist Gets Live-Action Show

Live-action series of Kazumi Kazui's design company romance story premieres on September 16

MBS announced on Monday that it is producing a live-action series adaptation of Kazumi Kazui's Dōse Mō Nigerarenai (Not Like I Can Run Away) manga that will premiere on September 16. The series will star Jin Shirasu and Mayū Yokota as protagonists Takumi Sakisaka and Naho Nodakuchi, respectively.

Yō Kawahara is directing the series, and is also penning the scripts with Yuna Suzuki. The series will premiere on MBS and TV Kannagawa on September 16; on Chiba TV on September 17; and on TV Saitama, Tochigi TV, and Gunma TV on September 23.

The manga centers on a design company, and the relationship that begins with the company's president and a part-time worker. Takumi Sakisaka, the company's president, maintains an irresponsible playboy image, but is an award-winning designer. Naho Nodakuchi is a regular, straight-laced woman who is working a part-time job at the company.

Kazui launched the manga in Shogakukan's Petit Comic magazine in July 2011, and ended it in July 2015. Shogakukan published 10 compiled book volumes for the manga.

Kazui drew the manga adaptation for Kyoichi Katayama's Socrates in Love novel in 2004. Viz Media published both the novel and manga in English in 2005.

Komiyuno drew the Demashita! PowerPuff Girls Z manga from 2006 to 2007, adapting the anime of the same name, and also drew Hime-chan no Ribon Colorful, a remake of Megumi Mizusawa's classic Hime-chan's Ribbon (Hime-chan no Ribon) manga. That manga ran in Shueisha's Ribon magazine from 2009 to 2010.
