TV Tokyo revealed its plans to produce a second live-action series adaptation of Hiroshi Matsuyama’s Chaser Game manga, titled ‘Chaser Game W: Power Harassment Boss is My Ex-Girlfriend’.  The setting and characters underwent a complete change from the previous work, and the script was entirely crafted from scratch under the supervision of a lesbian.
