Schoolboy must wear panties to save world in script co-developed by Shun Oguri

Comic Natalie and other media outlets began streaming the full trailer for HK/Hentai Kamen, the live-action film of Keishuu Andou's Ultimate!! Hentai Kamen gag manga. The trailer features the theme song "Emotions" by the rock band Man With a Mission. It may not be safe for work.

Ryōhei Suzuki (live-action Gatchaman, Mei-chan no Shitsuji, Hana-Kimi, Yankee-kun to Megane-chan) stars as Kyōsuke Shikijō, a high school boy who transforms into a hero by wearing a panties mask — and little else. For his first lead role, Suzuki bulked up by 15 kilograms (about 33 pounds) to match the muscle-bound physique of the original manga's character.

Actor Shun Oguri was a big fan of the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and he not only collaborated on the film's screenplay, but also personally recommended Suzuki for the role. He commented, "I didn't consider anyone else but Ryōhei!"

This film marks a new collaboration between Oguri and writer/director Yūichi Fukuda (I'll Give It My All... Tomorrow, One-Pound Gospel, Saru Lock, The 3-Mei-sama: Anime wa Anime de Arissho!). They previously worked together on the Tokyo Dogs television series. The rest of the cast includes Fumika Shimizu (Kamen Rider Fourze) as the heroine Aiko Himeno, Tsuyoshi Muro, Ken Yasuda, Jiro Sato, Narushi Ikeda, Takaashi Tsukamoto, Yoshinori Okada, and Shunsuke Daitō.

The film will open on April 6 at Tokyo's Shinjuku Wald 9 theater, and then will open nationwide on April 13.
