The short live-action version of Yumi Unita’s Crescendo de Susume (Proceed With Crescendo) manga will debut on October 17 at 7:53 a.m. on NTV’s ZIP! morning news show, the network said on Tuesday. Every everyday, a fresh five-minute edition of the show will be shown.
In Nagano Prefecture’s Matsumoto City, a high school serves as the setting for the manga. The protagonist of the narrative is Kashi, a third-year STEM high school student who will soon face the college admission examinations. After failing in a game of rock-paper-scissors, Kashi is compelled to take part in the choir competition. At the same time, Fujita, another choir member, makes a vow to triumph in the next competition. The plot revolves around tests, graduation, love, worry, and everything else that high school seniors go through.
The actors in the drama include Ryta Kuwayama, Karen Fujii, Noritaka Hamao, Natsuki Deguchi, and Kanata Hosoda.
The drama is being directed by Tya Sat and Noriyoshi Sakuma, with screenplays by Ysuke Masaike. Creating the music is Hinemos.
In December 2019 and ending in June 2020, Unita published the manga in Hakusensha’s Rakuen (Le Paradis) magazine. In July 2020, Hakusensha released the manga’s sole collected book volume.
Bunny Drop, an original slice-of-life manga by Unita, was serialized in Shodensha’s Feel Young magazine from 2005 to April 2011.
The manga was released in North America by Yen Press. A live-action film adaptation debuted in Japan in December 2011, and an anime television adaption ran in Japan from July to September 2011.
The English translation of Slumbering Beauty (Nemurime Hime) by Unita is now available via Seven Seas Entertainment.
A 2015 live-action movie was produced as a result of Unita’s Sukimasuki manga.
