NTV announced on Tuesday that it is producing a live-action series adaptation of Hinako Ashihara‘s Sexy Tanaka-san manga that will premiere in October. Haruka Kinami (seen below) stars as protagonist Kyōko Tanaka. Ryūichi Inomata and Akinori Itō are directing the series, with scripts by Tomoko Aizawa.
Ashihara launched the manga in Shogakukan‘s Anikei Petite Comic magazine in 2018, and it is ongoing. Shogakukan published the manga’s sixth compiled book volume on February 9.
Viz Media released Ashihara’s 10-volume Sand Chronicles manga in English. The company also released Ashihara’s SOS manga, which is a one-volume collection of short stories. Tokyopop released Ashihara’s four-volume Forbidden Dance manga in English.
Ashihara’s Piece manga inspired a live-action television series in 2012.
