Shiho Takase's Otoriyose Ōji Iida Yoshimi (Internet Shopping Prince Iida Yoshimi) comedy food manga is getting a live-action television adaptation this spring. The series revolves around 26-year-old Yoshimi Iida, an ordinary worker who has a secret no one knows about: he lives for eating delicious food from around Japan that he orders online and has delivered to his house at night.
Takashi Murakami's slice-of-life manga Paji will receive a live-action television special starring 75-year-old actor Shirou Itou. The original manga's story centers on a 71-year-old grandfather's struggle to raise his 5-year-old granddaughter after her parents pass away. The television special will air this spring.
The March issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Keiko Suenobu's Limit manga is being adapted into a live-action television project. The story follows what happens to the lives of five high school girls when a bus accident kills the rest of their classmates and leaves them fighting for survival.
Actor Shota Sometani (xxxHOLiC) and actress and fashion model Kaho (Otomen) will star in the live-action television adaptation of Kiminori Wakasugi's All Esper Dayo! (Minna! Esper Dayo!) comedy manga.
The psychic comedy follows an ordinary (virgin) high school boy named Yoshirō "Yocchan" Kamogawa (Sometani). His life changes overnight when he wakes up with the ability to read other people's minds. Yoshirō is not the only one to gain powers in his town. Teru-oichan, an (apparently virgin) worker at a café near Yoshirō's school, gains telekinesis — but he uses it for sex toys. Yōsuke Enomoto, a (probably virgin) senior and former basketball player at Yoshirō's high school, gains teleportation — but only while naked. Kaho will play Miyuki Hirano, a strong-minded "yankee" and Yoshirō's classmate.
Shion Sono (Suicide Circle, Himizu) is directing the series. The series of 12-minute episodes will air on TV Tokyo on Fridays starting in April.
Ryōhei Suzuki (live-action Gatchaman, Mei-chan no Shitsuji, Hana-Kimi, Yankee-kun to Megane-chan) is starring in a live-action film adaptation of Keishuu Andou's Ultimate!! Hentai Kamen gag manga. Actor Shun Oguri suggested the idea of a live-action film, and Oguri will collaborate on the film's script.
Suzuki will star as Kyōsuke Shikijō, a kenpo club member who accidentally has a pair of women's underwear land on his face while saving a girl from bullies. The underwear gives him the ability of using the entire potential of his body. Fumika Shimizu (Kamen Rider Fourze) will costar as Aiko Himeno, the only daughter of the Himeno Group business conglomerate.
EDIT: Trailer now available
