They certainly tried to stay true to the manga with the costumes, huh? The project will start off with the 4-episode TV series on December 4, before the TV special on January 8. This will then lead to the live-action film which is slated to premiere in February 2017.

The project was announced by Shounen Gangan magazine, and will based on Ritz Kobayashi’s popular mahjong manga series.
