TBS revealed the cast, visual, and July premiere for the live-action series of Riichirou Inagaki and Ryoichi Ikegami‘s Trillion Game manga on Tuesday. Ren Meguro (foreground in visual below) from idol group Snow Man will play protagonist Haru Tennōji, while Hayato Sano (background in visual below) Manabu “Gaku” Taira.
The show will premiere on the TBS channel and its affiliates in July.
The manga centers on the carefree Haru and the serious Gaku, two men who plot to earn a trillion dollars in order to afford anything they might ever want in the world. Haru is an eloquent, persuasive, and confident speaker, which allows him to be in anyone’s good graces. Gaku is an awkward but highly skilled programmer. The two were schoolmates in middle school, and reunite when Gaku’s application to a bank company is rejected.
Inagaki and Ikegami launched the manga in Big Comic Superior in December 2020. Shogakukan published the manga’s sixth compiled book volume on March 30.
