The drama series "Kentaro Hiyama's Pregnancy" based on Eri Sakai's original Japanese manga series 'Hiyama Kentarou no Ninshin' has revealed on Tuesday its first trailer and a teaser visual for its scheduled worldwide premiere exclusively on Netflix sometime in 2022.
The live-action drama series is co-produced by Netflix and TV Tokyo, with Takumi Saitoh portraying Kentaro Hiyama and Juri Ueno as Aki Seto. Other cast includes Mariko Tsutsui, Lily Franky, Ryo Iwamatsu, and Kazuya Takahashi.
It set in a world where men are pregnant and giving birth, and Kentaro Hiyama, an elite salaryman who unexpectedly became pregnant, has a prejudice against "male pregnancy and childbirth" and many social problems.
Trailer may not be available in all countries.
The series is based on the Japanese manga series 'Kentaro Hiyama's First Pregnancy (Hiyama Kentarou no Ninshin)' written and illustrated by Eri Sakai which was serialized in Kodansha's Be Love Magazine from August 2012 to November 2012 and has been collected into one tankōbon volume.
The manga received a sequel 'Kentaro Hiyama's First Pregnancy: Childcare Edition (Hiyama Kentarou no Ninshin Ikuji-hen)' which was then serialized from August 2019 to September 2020 on the same magazine and has been collected into two tankōbon volumes.
The manga has yet to receive an official english translation.
