The Japanese website Hollywood Channel has posted a trailer for Ai no Kotodama ~Sekai no Hate Made~ (Words of Devotion: To the End of the World), the second live-action film inspired by Keiko Konno's Ai no Kotodama boys-love manga, on Wednesday. Satoshi Kaneda returns to direct the second film with Yasuka Saitou (live-action The Prince of Tennis) reprising his role of Tachibana. However, there are two new main characters: an advertising agency's IT worker named Hirofumi (Makoto Ueunobori) and a high-level agency employee named Shinji (Ryūnosuke Kawai). The film will open in Japan on August 7.
The official website for the television anime adaptation of Takaya Kagami's Densetsu no Yūsha no Densetsu (The Legend of the Legendary Heroes) fantasy light novel franchise began streaming a 30-second television commercial video via the YouTube video service on Tuesday.
