They couldn't have gotten a better actor for Ryuusuke! I just hope the songs will be good and fit the style they were described as in the manga. none of this nana crap.

Chiba and ikemen in the same sentence? Laughing Maybe Kenta Kiritani isn't the right person for the roll, they're going to have to ugly him up a bit.

Sounds like it could have a lot of potential, but it'll be the soundtrack that either makes or breaks it.

Yay! I love Beck, but wasn't Koyuki 14 in the anime and the manga?

I think he was 14 at the beginning, and 16 at the end. I really enjoyed the anime, but the manga's art kind of turned me off from reading it, I just didn't like their faces for some reason. I'm hoping that the live action adaptation is good enough to warrant a North American release at some point.

This is one soundtrack I can't wait to listen to.

Goooo Hiro~! I really thought he would be putting his career on hold for a short while ever since his marriage with Ayaka <3 was publicly announced. I guess he'll be bringing home the money while the lady is resting at home.

Couldn't you have done so with the anime? It was fantastic. Especially the dub.

Seems like he'll just need to grow a bit more hair and it works. It seems the strokes they painted the cast description with were too broad. =P

Could turn out pretty good if they nail the music.
Just a shame they've decided to stray away from Koyuki as the central character as he pretty much made the series as interesting as it was.
Focusing on Ryuusuke will just make it an average experience imo, but we'll see...
