Haruka Seventeen (はるか17 Haruka Sebuntiin?) is a seinen manga by Sakuya Yamazaki which was serialized by Kodansha in Weekly Morning from 2004 to 2006. It was adapted into a live-action TV drama which aired on TV Asahi in 2005.


Haruka is about to graduate from a first-rate college and is looking for work, but no one wants to hire her. Faced with the prospect of becoming a "shuushoku rounin" she lowers her expectations and applies at a tiny talent agency for a job as an agent. When she shows up for the interview, it's like no interview she's ever had before. She's asked all sorts of embarrassing questions and asked to say lines in front of a camera.

Later she finds out that they thought she was interviewing to become a talent, and the agent position she wanted has already been given away. However, they think she has that special quality that can make someone a star. She refuses at first but gives in. Thus starts Haruka's career in the entertainment industry.[1]
