"Ikebukuro West Gate Park" (Short for IWGP) is based on the light novel series by Ishida Ira and published by Bungeishunjuu. The TV live-action drama was broadcast in 2000, and the main cast is Nagase Tomoya while the script is written by Kudou Kankuro.
The comments from Kubozuka Yousuke (as Andou Takashi in the TV live-action drama) said, "I was given the privilege to watch the first episode. All I could say is that the anime is the true successor of the original work."
Also, as a commemoration of the anime broadcast, a large poster will be hanged at the passage of the 35 exit in Ikebukuro Station, Marunouchi Line of Tokyo Metro until October 11, 2020, and there is also an advertisement on the 7 large vision within Tokyo Metropolitan.
TV anime "Ikebukuro West Gate Park" has started broadcast on TOKYO MX, AT-X, and other channels since October 6, 2020.
Kubozuka Yousuke's Comments
I actually hope for the anime of "Ikebukuro West Park Gate" to be the orthodox and the successor of the original work.
I felt that the live-action drama is more like a spin-off of the original work, and it would be best to not have the anime if it was following the live-action drama.
As I was given the privilege to watch the first episode, all I could say is that the anime is the true successor of the original work.
In a way, you can enjoy the difference from the live-action drama.
