The Staff, Cast, and Broadcast hasn’t been confirmed yet and will be revealed at a later date.
Act-Age (アクタージュ) is a Japanese manga series written by Tatsuya Matsuki and illustrated by Shiro Usazaki and serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump since January 22, 2018. The individual chapters are collected and published by Shueisha, with ten tankōbon volumes being released as of February 2020. Viz Media published the first three chapters for its “Jump Start” initiative and then began to simulpublish the series in December 2018 after a restructuring of the English Shonen Jump. Shueisha has also published the series in English on Manga Plus since January 2019.
The story focuses on Kei Yonagi, a high school girl who strives to become an actress. She lives with her two younger siblings, after their father left them and their mother died. Kei has an extreme talent for method acting, to the point where she loses track of reality while acting. At an audition, some speculate that acting of this intensity could be self-destructive, and cite that as a reason for not accepting her. However, Kei catches the eye of the highly acclaimed director Sumiji Kuroyama, who steps forward with the intent of bringing out her full potential.
