According to Kodansha, Ishikawa Masayuki's manga Moyashimon was announced to get a live action TV drama adaptation. It will be aired in Noitamina in 2010. This is the first live action program to be aired in the block, which was originally intended for anime.

And it will be mediocre like every other adaptation of anime ever made.

Will only accept if they do it on the setting the anime was inspired in. At least it has natural randomness all around...

I wonder if they'll add all the sexual fan service to the live action.

That may be true, but it is a fact that most anime fans have suspect taste when it comes to live action stuff. They dislike anything that isnt 2D you see!

Why can't they just do an animated sequel?

Yeah, don't tell me this drama is the sequel.... I want a real anime sequel no matter how good the drama turns out to be.

Let's sum this up. noitaminA has Nodame Finale slated for this winter, Yojohan Shinwa Taikei this spring, Saraiya Goyou pending... yet another project is announced? That's fairly surprising, especially for a timeslot that usually took its sweet time to announce its series (sometimes mere weeks before the premiere). It almost makes me wonder if there are plans to expand noitaminA into a full one-hour block... though getting this Moyashimon drama as late as fall would still sound more likely.

Thinking about it, a TV drama of Moyashimon should require plenty of animation anyway. Expect to get the exact same A. Oryzae as in the anime, at least.

I tend to be skeptical of drama adaptations, but I think this series lends itself to it very well. There's a lot fewer fantastical abilities and the characters don't look out of the ordinary for everyday life. As for the microbes, it's already been shown how well they work as CG (and technically they are even in the animated shots), so I don't see an issue..... looking forward to it.

Maybe this means we'll be getting the microbes like they are shown in the OP? that would be sweet. Depending on how they handle it, this maybe be quite interesting.

(I know that rookies is yet to be adapt in to anime form, but I assumed that manga was also included.)

I wonder if they mean "drama" literally? After all, Moyashimon is a comedy.

But then, who knows, maybe they'll make something along the lines of the "Negima" live action adaptation...

(That ought to scare anyone... <LOL> )

Most of the male Japanese actors look like girls so I won't be that much of a problem to get a Kei I guess D:

Also this, Rookies was amazing so I have faith this will be good as well.

Both fail and win.

Fail for IRL sexual tension and win for A. Oryaze.

Well, there's somehow a Shugo Chara live action as well. If that can work, I guess this can work too.

Preach it.


Yeah, I don't think this is all that bad. Haven't seen much drama, but what really bugs me is the way they act in Japan. I don't really like it, it's usually very exagerated.

But I hope they do the microbes like in the opening. That was pretty sweet.

All you need in life is a sick mind and someone to share it with.
Care to share?

And the answer to all your doubts..... It wins! Our beloved bacteria are back in action.... Live Action that is. And as the series did a good trick in blending the buggies into the the animation, this show too makes the animated critters fit right in.

Exactly. It takes everything from both the manga and the anime that made them good, but also incorporates what makes dramas good as well. Will definitely keep up with it. Immensely entertaining.

I keep seeing this in TT, but I never watched it because it felt like it was going to be bad because of no Mamiko Noto.
