Kuuchuu Buranko is going live-action, maybe UPSIDE DOWN

Japanator: "Some of you might remember Kuuchuu Buranko as an anime on the noitaminA block in late 2009, and even fewer might have remembered sitting through it without getting a headache. Well, for those who missed it, there seems to be another chance to catch up on psychiatrist Irabu and his multiple, anxiety-induced patients; Kuuchuu Buranko will air as a live-action TV drama starting January 30th.

There's really no word on if the live-action series will follow in similar fashion of the anime, or if it'll be more like the one-off TV special of Kuuchuu Buranko back in 2005.
