Yomiuri TV, NTV, and their affiliates announced on Monday that they are producing a live-action series adaptation of Hidenori Hara‘s Shō mo Nai Bokura no Renai-ron (Our Little Love Story or literally, Our Hopeless Love Theory) romance manga that will premiere on the “Platinight” programming block on January 19.

The cast includes Seina Nakata (left in image above) as Kurumi Tanimura, Hidekazu Mashima (center) as Takurō Tsutsumi, and Akiko Yada (right) as Eri Morita.

Keisuke Kondō, Hana Matsumoto, and Ryūichi Honda are directing the series, with scripts by Nanoha Itō and Yūko Imanishi.

The manga centers on the relationships of three individuals: 40-year-old Takurō Tsutsumi, an editorial designer who remains single in his 40s; Eri Morita, a girl whom Takurō has been friends with since high school; and Kurumi Tanimura, a girl whom Takurō once had feelings for.

Hara launched the manga in Shogakukan‘s Big Comic magazine in January 2020, and ended it in March 2021. Shogakukan published the manga’s sixth and final compiled book volume in April 2021.

Hara received an award in the 33rd Shogakukan Manga Awards for his Just Meet and Fuyu Monogatari manga. He drew one of the manga adaptations of the Train Man: Densha Otoko story that Viz Media published in North America from 2006 to 2007. Hara’s Hoshi no Furumachi (When You Wish Upon a Star) manga inspired a live-action film in 2011.

Hara launched the Dump the Heel manga in Big Comic in October 2021.
