Lost in Translation
Two stories from Feel Young's Tokyo Nameless Girl's Story comic anthology, Yōko Nemu's "Nokonoko" and Dodo Yamasaki's "Change," will receive live-action short film adaptations. The anthology was written by Yūsei Naruse.
Mitsuki Tanimura (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars) will star as Nozomi in the "Nokonoko" and Megumi Yanagi will star as Sae in "Change." The shorts will be directed by Akio Ōku (Koi Suru Madori).
"Nokonoko" revolves around female arts college students who are worried about their futures. "Change" is about two female roommates whose personalities are complete opposites of one another. The short films will be released in early summer 2012.
Tokyo Nameless Girl's Story was serialized in Shodensha's Feel Young from 2007 to 2008.
