Tomodachi Game Manga to Get a New Live Action Adaptation!

June 28, 2022

The Tomodachi Game manga is getting a new live-action adaptation, following a four-episode TV drama and two-part movie in 2017. The new adaptation is a TV drama titled Tomodachi Game R4 that will premiere on July 23 on TV Asahi.

The show’s directors are Takurou Oikawa (The High School Heroes co-director), Hajime Takezono (The High School Heroes and Mokomi: Kanojo Chotto hen Dakedo co-director), and Kamada Toshiaki (Mokomi: Kanojo Chotto hen Dakedo co-director). Takuji Higuchi (Rikon no Futari) and Shinya Hokimoto (Chijou no Seppun) are the scriptwriters.

Tomodachi Game R4 sports a cast composed of members from the Johnny’s Jr. units Bishonen and HiHi Jets. The cast includes,

  • Hidaka Ukisho as Yuuichi Katagiri
  • Ryuuga Satou as Tenji Mikasa
  • Mizuki Inoue as Makoto Shibe
  • Fujii Naoki as Kei Shinomiya
  • Taisho Iwasaki as Juzo Kadokura
  • Soya Igari as Hyakutaro Onigawara
  • Issei Kanasashi as Chisato Hashiratani
  • Yuuto Nasu as Banri Niwa.


The story, based on Mikoto Yamaguchi’s original concept, centers on Yuichi Katagiri, a young man with a perfect student life who has four friends with difficult lives. His peaceful daily life comes to an end when 2 million yen (about US$20,000) in school trip fees goes missing. Riddles unfold as Yuichi gets caught up in a mysterious game for money and must decide whether friendship or money matters more.

The show will tackle a very familiar contemporary subject such as betrayal and greed with a newer approach, as each character’s nerves are tested in a mysterious debt clearing game.

The manga is serialized in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shounen Magazine and published under the Kodansha Comics Magazine label. An anime adaptation premiered on April 5.
