Rokuhōdō Yotsuiro Biyori Manga Gets Live-Action TV Drama

posted on by Alex Mateo
Nozomu Kotaki stars in January 2022 series

Yū Shimizu's Rokuhōdō Yotsuiro Biyori manga is inspiring a live-action television drama that will debut on TV Asahi's Oshidora Saturday block in January 2022. The series will star Nozomu Kotaki of Johnny's West as Sui.

Yōko Izumisawa is writing the screenplay. Yumiko Miwa is the general producer at TV Asahi. Sari Kijima, Shūhei Toshi, Yasuyuki Niino, and Risa Hikita are producing the drama. Yuki Saito, Keisuke Shibata, and Eriko Sato are directing the series. THEFOOL Inc. is cooperating on the production.

The manga inspired an anime that premiered in April 2019. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.

The story of both the original manga and the anime takes place at a popular Japanese-style tea house called Rokuhōdō. Four specialists work there: Sui makes the tea, Gure creates latte art, Tsubaki makes the sweets, and Tokitaka cooks. In addition to serving their customers, they sometimes help them solve their problems.

Shimizu's original manga launched in Go Go Bunch in October 2013. The manga moved to Monthly Comic @Bunch in January 2018 shortly before Go Go Bunch ended publication. Shinchosha published the 15th compiled book volume on October 8.
