Ikki Magazine's "Dosei Mansion" to get live-action treatment

by Chris MaGee

A report from Tokyograph this morning that Hisae Iwaoka’s science fiction manga “Dosei Mansion (Saturn Apartments)” could be getting the big screen treatment. The latest issue of Shogakukan's Ikki Magazine is saying that the story of a young lower class boy growing up in a future where humans have abandoned the Earth in favour of life in an orbital ring circling around the planet will be turned into a live-action feature. That’s all fine and good, but Ikki, in which “Dosei Mansion” has appeared since 2005, did not mention anything about a director, cast or release date for the project. What a tease! We’ll keep our ear to the ground for more details.
