NYAFF XX Review: Yuichi Fukuda’s FROM TODAY, IT’S MY TURN!!, A Spirited, Knuckled-Up Live Action Comedy Niche Delight

Live-action adaptations of mangas and animes can be an acquired taste depending on what you enjoy. Yuichi Fukuda’s take on Gintama was a delight in 2017, though it still takes getting used to compared to the animated series’ own aesthetic. Nonetheless, Fukuda has made bank on his share of adapting certain IPs for the screen, and his latest bit of leg work now stems from the mind of mangaka Hiroyuki Nishimori with From Today, It’s My Turn!!, following from Fukuda’s prior legwork on the titular 2018 ten-episode NTV drama.
