The official website for the live-action series of Yumi Tamura's Do not say mystery (Mystery to Iu Nakare) manga revealed on Monday that Sairi Itō (seen below) will join the cast as Seiko Furomitsu, a rookie detective.

The series will premiere in January 2022. The series will star Masaki Suda (left in image below) as protagonist Totonō Kunō (right).

Hiraoki Matsuyama, Shunsuke Shinada, Hideyuki Aizawa, and Hiroyuki Abe are directing the series. Tomoko Aizawa is penning the scripts. The series will air on Mondays at 9:00 p.m.

The manga follows mystery-solving college student Totonō Kunō. At the beginning of the story, the police bring him in for questioning on suspicion of the murder of his classmate.

Tamura published a one-shot for the manga in Monthly Flowers in November 2016, before launching a full serialization of the manga in the magazine a year later in November 2017. Shogakukan published the manga's ninth compiled book volume on July 9, and the 10th volume will ship on December 10. The manga has topped 10 million copies in circulation, including electronic book edition.

Kodansha awarded the manga in its 44th annual Manga Awards in April 2020. The manga was also nominated for the 13th Manga Taisho Awards in January 2020.

Tamura launched the 35-volume 7SEEDS series in 2001 in Bessatsu Shōjo Comic magazine, before eventually moving it to Monthly Flowers. The manga ended in July 2017. The manga won the Shōjo Category of the 52nd Annual Shogakukan Manga Awards in 2007. The manga inspired two anime series that premiered on Netflix in June 2019 and June 2020.

Tamura's 27-volume Basara manga ran in Bessatsu Shōjo Comic from 1990-1998. Viz Media published the manga in English in 2003-2008. The manga inspired the 13-episode Legend of Basara television anime series in 1998. Viz Media also published Tamura's two-volume Chicago manga in 2002-2003, and her one-volume Wild Com manga in 2004.

Tamura's Tomoe ga Yuku! manga inspired an original video anime (OVA) series in 1991-1992.
