The seventh issue of this year's Kodansha's Weekly Shounen Magazine has announced on Wednesday that the manga Real Account will get a live-action movie adaptation. More information will be revealed on later issues of the magazine as well as a special website.

Okushou pens the manga with illustrations drawn by Shizumu Watanabe. It has begun its serialization in Kodansha's Monthly Shounen Magazine since January 2014 until it was transferred into a weekly-issuing magazine a year after. The manga has received 17 compiled volumes, with the 18th to ship on January 17.

Kodansha Comics USA has been publishing the manga in English for print and digital release since March 22, 2016. The manga's eighth volume was released in October last year.

At least they picked something simple to adapt instead of batshit like they normally do.

Lol this was the announcement I saw a few days ago? Disappointed, though then again, it is ridiculous to think that the manga could even be adapted into an anime. The first part is only 10 chapters and the second part can't be stopped in the middle to make a 12 episodes unless it gets butchered with anime original ending.

Was it? Who had already read the manga here?
If that shit was indeed was like this one I might consider delete this on my PTR.
It's definitely not as bad as OG. Cringey at times, but you sometimes find yourself caring about the characters - they're not as dumb as OG ones. And they find ways to fight for their lives.
Still sounds bad, I'll read it if there's more good response to it.

Real Account felt more like a popcorn entertainment type of manga with a mediocre story for me. It might still get an anime someday but I honestly don't care much about it if it did.

Real Account was a mess but it does have some good parts...
it had a few plot twists that made me go wth

i used to read it a few years ago, but then i lost track of where i was. but still, i remember i liked this a lot, and i can't wait for the live-action movie!
here's to hoping it'll get an anime adaption as well

God damn it! I was so happy when I first started reading because I thought it was going to get an anime adaptation, but we're just getting a shitty live action movie instead :(

I think this manga is waaaay better than Ousama Game. But I do agree with Rojo, like always the first half was great but then it went downhill.

I hate live action movies but maybe we'll get an anime if it does well...

I must agree with the dude here.


I'd actually rank this higher than Osamu game. The first season of the manga was actually really good... then the second season started and it went downhill faaaaaaaaaaaaaast.

Its trash either it be in manga anime or live action

Lets hope they make it look better then the Ousama game live action.
