The live-action film adaptation of Yomi Hirasaka's Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (Haganai) light novel series will open in Japan on February 1, 2014. Two more stills from the film debuted:

Hirasaka and Buriki's original Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai light novels revolve around Kodaka (Kōji 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 (Kie Kitano). The two decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for misfits with hardly any friends.

Mio Otani plays Sena, a beautiful girl who treats her male admirers like slaves but has never had any female friends. Sara Takatsuki (Otomen, GTO, Daily Lives of High School Boys) plays Yukimura Kusunoki, a youth who looks female, but claims to be a boy. Mao Kanjō plays the brilliant and perverted Rika Shiguma.

Takurō Oikawa wrote the screenplay and directed the film. Hirasaka stated previously that the the film will be an original story, so as not to recreate the original school romantic comedy light novels.

The light novel series' eight volumes have 6.1 million copies in print. It already inspired two television anime series with video anime spinoffs as well as a manga.
