LesPros Entertainment announced on Thursday that it is producing a live-action adaptation of Ryōko Chiba’s boy love manga Suki Yanen Kedo Dō Yaro ka (I Like You, But How About You?) will premiere on Yomiuri TV’s “Drama DiVE” programming block on January 11.
The series stars Hideyoshi Kan (Kamen Rider Geats) as Sakae Matsumoto and Jun Nishiyama (We Like What We Like.) as Hisashi Soga.
The series revolves around the relationship between recently divorced salaryman Hisashi Soga and restaurant owner Sakae Matsumoto. After being transferred to Osaka after the divorce, Hisashi always kept his head down, focused on work but enjoyed the food every time he dined at Sakae’s restaurant. But Sakae has begun to see Hisashi as more than just an ordinary customer.
Chiba published the manga in Kaiohsha’s Gush magazine in 2013. Kaiohsha published a compilation booklet of the manga in 2015.
Digital Manga Publishing previously published Chiba’s Eternal Love Manga (Ore no Zutto Suki na Hito) in English in 2008.
