A live-action TV drama adaptation of ecchi manga Prison School (Kangoku Gakuen) has been announced for broadcast in October on MBS and TBS. Noboru Iguchi, who worked as an AV director, will direct the series. Iguchi most recently directed the tokusatsu film Nuiguruma Z, which stars Shoko Nakagawa.

Prison School is written and illustrated by Akira Hiramoto. It has been serialized in Kodansha's seinen Weekly Young Magazine since 2011. The 18th volume of the manga will be released on August 6. Prison School was one of the two winners of the Kodansha Manga Award for General Manga in 2013. Yen Press has licensed the manga for North American release, and the first volume was published in July.

The anime adaptation of the manga series is currently airing.

This is going to be shit,
live-action can't mimic the awesome facial expressions they've created in the anime and manga. I really liked the unrealistic situations and i feel i'ts going to be so bad done in a live-action series.

It looks good, and unlike SnK's live action, the characters actually look like their anime counterparts.
