Kanjō remembered being excited like her character, the brilliant and perverted Shiguma, when she was allowed to read the script. She also mused about whether one has hardly any friends if one feels the sense of security and the amazing feeling that comes with having friends.
Takurō Oikawa wrote the screenplay and directed the film, which is slated for early 2014. Hirasaka stated previously that the the film will be an original story, so as not to recreate the original school romantic comedy light novels.
Hirasaka and Buriki's original Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai light novels revolve around Kodaka (Seto) — a half-Japanese/half-British transfer student whose delinquent-like blonde hair and fierce eyes scare people — and a seemingly perpetually sullen girl named Yozora (Kitano). The two decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for misfits with hardly any friends. Otani's character Sena is a beautiful girl who treats her male admirers like slaves but has never had any female friends.
