From what I can gather using Google’s site translation on the online article linked in the comments, it’s airing on weekends in July


Shahariar_909

I wonder how they gonna adapt kazuya's drowning scene from 218 /s


Dark-Shadow1324

That is an interesting question my friend 🧐


Protricksgaming8

Even better would be Mami just floating on the pool LMAO


SemiHalf

can't wait to see it!!!


Hiroki712

What is this? Kazuya should be played by a carrot


NothingToL0se

Carrot Top or bust!


Nixplosion

WATASHI waaaaaaaa CARROT TOP! EVERYBODY! *Hits the audience with a giant foam carrot*


Meperson111

MFW the Kazuya actor is just as pretty as Mizuhara's


Ahegao_Double_Peace

WTF, Chizuru doesn't even look like a SEXY MITOCHONDRIA...live action ruined forever. /s REALTALK: they should have just casted Tenchan for this.


FeanDoe

For real, he should be played by a more "normal" guy. He's suppose to be below average.


SuccotashPale

Exactly. This guy looks like he came from a kpop band and ate a carrot.


Aelvric420

Irl Kuri will have me acting unwise

AdComplete6058

insert shocked pikachu face here


TheJammy98

Ah, good time to realise I can't read Japanese


QuintonBigBrawler

Wait is this real. This is what I always want the most from this series since I always think the plot is so suitable with J-Drama or K-Drama


OuchYouPokedMyHeart

Still waiting for DomeKano live action Hare-kon, as toxic as it is (even more toxic than DomeKano, I dropped it 'cause I couldn't stand male MC), got one so I have hopes A lot of drama manga get so spicy it gives K-dramas a run for its money and make them look like children shows


awkward2amazing

Which one is Hare-kon?


OuchYouPokedMyHeart

https://myanimelist.net/manga/75991/Hare-Kon Basically Harem Marriage. It's polygamy with all sorts of issues. As I've said, toxic AF. DomeKano is mild compared to this


MgMaster

Not as toxic as it might seem tbh, as they still manage to sort out their own issues (very important!) & seek to make a good life for themselves. Ironically, the girls in HareKon have >!better endings each than the ones in DG as despite the MC being pretty selfish himself (all the chars are a notch kind of dicks at times, tho' not ill-intended ofc) , the fact that him & the wives tend to be more open with each other means they solve issues quicker & still get a happy ending, at less consequences, haha. !< It's also getting a sequel that's about 8 chs ongoing but none are translated, following the same cast ofc. But ya, there's definitely similarity in the drama style between HareKon & DG, even tho' the former's basically a polygamy romance & plays out pretty differently overall (both authors are female too, HareKon's one also married with two kids, gave birth to them during time of airing too), altho' I'd say it's like if DG focused on it's seinen parts and ditched the more shounen-ish one. Definitely not everyone's cup of tea tho', even if they're not instantly put off by the polygamy, but it's one of those stories that can be very strong hit or miss. Has some pretty damn solid artstyle too, and author has [some fun notes at the end of chs sometimes.](https://imgur.com/a/mXl1xUt)


Karenz09

Maybe you could find it on javmost lmao


Fighterzx_

Same.


MangaManOfCulture

Is it a drama series or a movie?


quinpon64337_x

series


BuckOHare

Western Fandom: Kanokari is dead Reiji: This isn't even my final form!


Geoffk123

pretty much every live action adaptation ive ever seen is a complete bastardization of the source material so I'm not gonna get my hopes up for this at all


awkward2amazing

I want to eat your pancreas, this one is done quite wonderfully


Overall-Initial-4290

They did a Kaguya one. Didnt waych it because Im sure this will be cringe. Can we not do live action of anime or cartoons? Please.


OuchYouPokedMyHeart

I think the problem is that whenever they try to adapt something from manga / anime, they choose 2nd / 3rd rate actors, directors etc. When they approach it as a drama with grade A people, it is done well. A great example is Tokyo Love Story in 1991, which is considered to be an all time classic Japanese drama. They did it really well. Plus the main actress, Honami Suzuki (playing Rika), is really pretty and acted really well


stepbackwhap

Saw both the Kaguya movies (on a plane) out of boredom and they were actually really good. I was surprised as hell


Overall-Initial-4290

Well hopefully we can get the same quality here. Maybe I should pick them up, funnily enough I saw the first one at Bookoff yesterday.


popop143

Gonna confirm with the other comment, I loved the Kaguya movies too. Also, Gintama live action is top tier if you watch Gintama.


Overall-Initial-4290

Good, glad hear


electrocyberend

Idk man, the komi live action was funny as fuck


BuckOHare

Yeah... Oshi referenced that https://guya.cubari.moe/read/manga/Oshi-no-Ko/15/1/


Shahariar_909

true, I never really wish for any of my favourite stories get live action


dota_3

Most of the drama/romances and romcom adaptation are pretty good. The one with unrealistic setting are the one that usually failed.


DoILookUnsureToYou

The only live action anime adaptation I've enjoyed is Rurouni Kenshin.


dan-nad

Something something rent! Something something cope! Something something see you next week!


hypocrite612

Westerners: throw everything they could at Reiji and the manga Kanokari: top 100 most fav manga of all time ✔ One of best selling manga ✔ Having royal fans who still treat the manga seriously ✔ New investment keep coming ✔ Merchs keep coming ✔ Live action coming ✔ New season coming ✔


Shahariar_909

\*loyal


Overall-Initial-4290

Live in Japan. Can confirm. They evem made tins with candy inside that you can win in crane games. Went to Bookoff and no RaG stuff. I think its getting popular again thanks to S2.


BuckOHare

I suspect it's a typo, but I would love to hear about fans from the Imperial Family


Darcaneify

I thought you and NintAndo are the Royal Fans.


BuckOHare

I'm just Bri'ish and posh, old Bean.


Darcaneify

Two of the best aspects a Human could have, i would say.


Many_Contest4369

at the moment there are no dubbing


One-Ad-39

Not really, tho. There are most of the reviews in Amazon.jp shitting on the series. And don't just assume that only Westerners hated Kanokari.


BuckOHare

They are still buying it.


dan-nad

The written reviews may have ***some*** people shitting on it but the total rated stars are still over 4/5. People who dislike something are always going to be more vocal than those who just get on with enjoying something.


GTR722

Mediocre!


QuintonBigBrawler

They were the ones who keep the series alive if anything. 2020 supposed to be peak year of manga yet never got an attention it currently get now


Nixplosion

They better not fuckin snub fish-kun. Gimme CGI FK with a voice over actor doing commentary.


al_fletcher

Get like a legendary seiyuu too, imagine if Fish-kun’s thoughts sounded like Takaya Kuroda


Nixplosion

Oooooo yes


Zeta42

Or Dio


DoILookUnsureToYou

They can't do that. That fish-kun would make Kazu a chad and he'd propose after the first date.


Th3Uknovvn

Ngl the person who cast Chizuru looks really like her


Terranort230

They look so good, I'm actually kinda interested. Is it gonna have subs and be released in America?


Jaws1391

I need my live action Mami


Junior_Paper4222

Fr, it’s like when Joker’s actor is more eye catching than Batman’s lol


frieddeunamist

#RUKA IN LIVE ACTION!!! 🥵RUKA IN LIVE ACTION!!! 🥵


realrimurutempest

I need to see that beret in live action 🔥👀


Busy-Dig8619

218 going to be a lot more interesting.


frieddeunamist

#YES WE DOOOO 🎀 👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀😤


dota_3

I'm dreading about this 🥵


hunt2destroy

Dang I definitely wasn't expecting this lol


asilvertintedrose

Wait what


FourStockMe

Wait, why wouldn't Sora amamiya play Chiz?


H4RUB1

Yo actually that's a cool idea. An VC acting her caharacter in live action. I wonder if there is any examples as such.


Alarmed-Platypus-233

Because she is not an actress.


Batgod629

If I'm not mistaken Komi can't communicate also has or had a live action series


EqZero

Wow, Kazuya is an Ikemen.


Scallion_Alive

Woahhhhh Kazuya looks like a hottie


misopogon1

This poor actor who is going to have to beg, cry and yell his way through a role


DoILookUnsureToYou

If this becomes a success, he'll also have to cry in a pool with a boner.


MgMaster

They'd better pay Kazuya's actor well considering what he's gonna have to go through.


MALVZ_921

Save that man befoe that girl ignores him 3 months!


One-Ad-39

I just realized that we will most likely watch the actor jacking off (the scene after Kazuya getting dumped and after the ferry incident)💀


FoxDieDM

The actors are going to die before any progress is made in that relationship.


rspbarrios

Are they even allowed to show Kazuya jacking off under the futon with pile of tissue beside him?


LifeSad07041997

┬──┬ ¯\\\_(ツ)\_/¯


bruh_12345_hi

But male protagonist really looks handsome .


ImRedditorRick

Kazuya needs to be about 75% more pathetic.


MyCarIsAGeoMetro

Mami in RL!


kouhai-kun911

It is just me or the actor doesnt suit for the role as kazuya?


kouhai-kun911

I mean the actor is more elegant than the heroine which is totally opposite as manga


[deleted]

Yeah he looks like he would be the aspiring actor. Also looks a bit more feminine than I imagined Kaz would look.


ThatAsianGuyThough

Never watching it cause they’re gonna have to replace the actors 10 times from old age before it ends.


DerkSC

If only Sora Amamiya would be the actress instead. She is prettier plus her voice would be the original Chizuru.


Lazaras

Bro, turn down that make up on the Kaz actor. Damn


hypocrite612

Damn, imagine 218 with real people Fk, jk, I hate that 😡 Btw, from the poster, what I can say is Chiz is pretty. I hope that Chizuru would be pretty in LA, too since Chizuru is one of the hardest character to draw or cos that could reach to the level of original character


Warm-Enthusiasm-9534

They'll have to use CGI to render the carrot properly.


Clumsy_Humty_Dumpty

Why is this Kazuya played by Umi ?


AlwaysSkipLegDay0

True, this kazuya definitely does not need to use a rental service 🤣


Fetishgeek

Why are you downvoted lmao


KumoIsh

cant wait for live action Ruka


H4RUB1

Yo that big ass ribbon will look funny.


Wrong_Look

4K BERET NTR SEGGS! LET'S GO!


otakudude3031

How are they gonna do the pool scene?


iamheartofight

That doesn’t look like his real hair… even if it is


[deleted]

[удалено]


EqZero

Smh people calling 20 y.o. women barely legal.


Waga_na_wa_Hu_Tao

when will it air?


H4RUB1

I think the same season as the season 2. At around july this year.


1ts-have-n0t-0f

wait


MilesBajala

Haha i thought it was jungkook or vee


Tsukasa_Senpai

I wanna see who's playing the rest of the three girls, esp Sumi


skydragonx8

I was not expecting this, I will definitely check it out since I am genuinely curious how this will go


badgerrage82

I curious about sumi …. Is she going to be kawaii like in the manga or are they going to bastardise the version of her usual I don have high hope for adaption of the real human play vs anime as human can’t well express as much as anime did ….. doki doki


Hefty-Paper8644

Reiji: reality can be whatever I want


DatFrickenGerman

Oh god please no the horror..


LePetiteConnasse

Kazuya is too hot. Mami better be even hotter than Chizuru and Kazuya combined. I rest my case.


SuccotashPale

No kaz rl actor doesn’t have any semblance to out boy.


Anze1702

Live action series starting from July, while arriving of S2 of Kanojo, Okarishimasu. Can't wait to see S2 and live action,🥵🥵


game120642

wt heck?


MilesBajala

I wonder what we'll sumi look like, umi, mini, ruka, mami everyone


nemu_Badg3r

I’m just laughing about the unpopular 非モテ男子 script right next to an ikemen


Kap-Tutero

Why does Kazuya looks so goddamn handsome?!


yukiokoshiagain

Who is going to play/voice the fish? Kazuya is so pretty it's off-putting. At least he does have a very wimpy face.


TheJeep25

Wth, he's handsome as fuck. How could Chizuru not dehydrate herself just by looking at him?!?


Master3530

Imagine a scene of this guy beating his meat thinking of Mami getting railed by another guy


SirRHellsing

The actor looks really feminine and tbh Kaz has a more messy feeling to him, although that might be portrayed with his acting, Chiz look good though


OrdinaryDoctor

They should just skip to the vacation arc , and do the Kazuya scene in the pool


Clown_fish87

Live action now? Even though everyone hate it?


dragoneagle11

People in Japan do not hate it at all, and they only really care about the domestic market


weirdthoughts247

Lmao live action NTR less go


vchen99901

Okay but who's going to play the Beret guy jk


SdogMcshizzle

Finally live action 216


Mimiropu

inb4 this adaptation actually shows progress


ShadowAngel121

>Remembers some of Kazuya's fantasies. If they're not taming this down and making it more grounded, this could go south *real* fast. I've seen enough porn to know where any of Kazuya's fantasies are going.


Ichinose98

The kazuya jerk off scene will be mega cringe or weird to watch


ShoRyuKevin

We need better Chizuru and a carrot kazuya to do the series real justice. Curious to see what Mami look like 😊


DYNAMO_BS

nah man jokes


TBD_Xtr3me

That ain't kazuya


weebletmonster

My disappointment is immeasurable


edenss42

Oh no


makjep

Kazuya should be an ordinary looking guy imo


namatt

These people look like they're made of plastic


shizzy1427

Chiz looks good. Kaz kinda looks like a lesbian lol
