Vertical published the novel in October 2017. Kodansha Publishing USA describes the story:
Japanese animation – globally acclaimed, family-friendly theatrical feature films are the exception rather than the rule for a television-focused industry that has been pushed into late-night time slots in an era of fragmented ratings . While only three titles out of fifty could turn a profit, topping the charts is not too ambitious a goal.
Yet as three women, a producer, director, and host, survive in a company infamous for its murderous schedules, demoralizing compromises, and incorrigible men, moments of uplifting emerge against all odds — and how. More than just a window into an entertainment niche, here’s an awesome ode to work.
Kohei Yoshino is directing the entire live-action film and Yōsuke Masaike is writing the script. Toei Tokyo Film Studio films the work, and Toei will distribute the film. The film will feature Riho Yoshioka, Tomoya Nakamura, Tasuku Emotoand machiko ono.
The movie will also feature anime projects in the story that will feature the work of two different real-life employees.
Azuma Tani (Thermae Romae, Waka Okami wa Shōgakusei!) is directing the anime “Soundback: Sō no Ishi” which will appear in the film. Manga creator and illustrator Eisaku Kubonouchi (Carol & Tuesday) designs the characters. Takayuki Yanase (Mobile Suit Gundam 00) is the mechanical designer.
Likewise, Takashi Otsuka (One Piece Stampede, Glittering Force) is directing the anime “Unmei Sensen Liddell Light” which will appear in the movie. Takahiro Kishida (Durarara!!, Baccano!) designs the characters.
The film will be released on May 20.
