Hana Yori Dango 2's Aya Ōmasa, AKB48's Rie Kitahara in July series

This year's 25th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine is announcing on Friday that a live-action television series adaptation of Masanori Morita's classic boxing manga Rokudenashi Blues has been green-lit for a July 2011 premiere. The story centers around Taison Maeda, a boy who makes a first impression at his new high school of delinquents by punching a teacher. While some clubs want to recruit him to beat up other clubs, Taison only wishes to lead the boxing club and become the world boxing champion.

Aya Ōmasa (Paradise Kiss, Hana Yori Dango 2 [Returns]) will play the heroine Chiaki, while Rie Kitahara of the all-female idol group AKB48 will play Taison's classmate Kazumi.

The manga ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1988 to 1997, and its compiled book volumes have 50 million copies in print. It already inspired two television anime films, two live-action films, and a stage play.
