TV Tokyo began streaming a one-minute promo for the upcoming live-action adaptation of Kiminori Wakasugi's comedy manga All Esper Dayo! (Minna! Esper Dayo!). The series of 12-minute episodes will air on TV Tokyo on Fridays starting on April 12.
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 (played by Mikata Sports), an (apparently virgin) worker at a café near Yoshirō's school, gains telekinesis — but he uses it for sex toys. Yōsuke Enomoto (played by Motoki Fukami), a (probably virgin) senior and former basketball player at Yoshirō's high school, gains teleportation — but only while naked.
Random Hero is set to broadcast every Friday starting on April 5, at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time for its premium members. Free members will be able to view this series one (1) week after initial Crunchyroll broadcast.
“Our protagonist – Kenta, played by Ryuta Sato – is a selfish, good-for-nothing type of individual, who can only think about his personal gain rather than the well-being of others. However, after a strange set of events he is given superpowers for only 10 minutes at a time. How will our self-indulging protagonist handle this power and will he finally learn to put others before himself?”
If you're thinking "left over April Fools' joke," you're not the only one, but credible global movie news site Twitch is reporting rumors that Ju-On and The Grudge director Takashi Shimizu is on board for a live-action adaptation of Kiki's Delivery Service.
Twitch says its an adaptation of the beloved Hayao Miyazaki anime movie, but in theory, if such a project exists, it could be an adaptation of Eiko Kadono’s original book.
