Mirai Nikki Manga Gets Live-Action Show with Masaki Okada

posted on 2012-02-16 17:40 EST

Future Diary already inspired anime; Okada starred in Hana-Kimi, BokuKimi

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sakae Esuno's Future Diary (Mirai Nikki) manga is inspiring Mirai Nikki -Another:World-, a live-action television series adaptation which will premiere on Fuji TV this April. 22-year-old actor Masaki Okada (Hana-Kimi, BokuKimi, Otomen, Mahō Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto) stars in the project. Okada will play a character named Arata Hoshino, an original character who did not appear in Esuno's manga.

The new live-action series will be the first one to run in Fuji TV's 11:00 p.m. timeslot on Saturdays in two years. Previous live-action series that ran in this slot include Life (with a series high rating of 17.4%) and SP. Okada earned his first starring role in another live-action Saturday series on Fuji TV three years ago, Otomen. He is also starring in the live-action film adaptation of the Space Bros. (Uchū Kyōdai) manga this May.

The manga has sold 4 million copies and inspired both a video anime project and a television anime series which premiered in October. Tokyopop published 10 of the 12 manga volumes before shutting down its North American publishing operations last May. Funimation and the video-streaming service Niconico are streaming the television anime series as it airs in Japan.



Update: More background information added. Yūsuke Watanabe (20th Century Boys trilogy, Gantz, Bloody Monday) is scripting the live-action series.
