posted on 2009-09-17 20:16 EDT
The official website for the film adaptation of Tōru Honda and Kasumu Kirino's Light Novel no Tanoshii Kakikata light novels has launched with announcement that the film will be live-action. The film was first revealed on the wraparound jacket band on the fourth light novel volume and Softbank Creative's "GA Explorer" pamphlet insert earlier this month, but neither had indicated if the film would be live-action or anime at the time. The website promises an update in 15 days.
The story centers on Yakumo Atae, a first-year student who knows the hidden secret of his fearsome classmate Tsurugi Yabusame — while she is the school's strongest girl, she is also a budding light novel author under the penname Mio Himemiya. Tsurugi is stuck in a huge slump while writing her new romantic comedy. Yakumo's cousin Kokona Atae happens to be Tsurugi's editor, and Kokona suggests that Yakumo and Tsurugi become a couple so that Tsurugi can know the experience of romance.
Honda began the light novel series in last year, and Softbank Creative is shipping the fourth volume this month.
