Ryō Ikuemi’s Anata no Koto wa Sorehodo Manga Gets Live-Action Drama
The February issue of Shodensha‘s Feel Young magazine will announce on Saturday that Ryō Ikuemi’s Anata no Koto wa Sorehodo is receiving a live-action drama series adaptation. The manga will feature on the issue’s cover and the current chapter will have color pages.
The story follows Mitsu, a woman around the age of 30 who is married to the second man she fell in love with. She begins having an affair with her first love, her former middle school classmate Arishima. Both of them are already married, and Mitsu’s husband begins to suspect her.
Ikuemi has multiple ongoing manga series, including Watashi-Sora-Anata-Watashi and Taiyō ga Miteiru (Kamoshirenai Kara). Her Kiyoku Yawaku manga inspired a live-action film adaptation in 2013, and her Pops manga inspired an original video anime in 1993.
A North American release of Ikuemi’s Itoshi no Nina (Nina, My Love) was listed under Tokyopop on online retailer Amazon in 2011 with a release date of December 2011, but Tokyopop closed its doors that April before any confirmation was given. JManga digitally distributed Ikuemi’s Cousin manga in English before also closing its doors.
