A teaser trailer for the live-action adaptation of Taku Tsumugi's Hot Road shōjo manga began streaming on Wednesday.
The manga revolves around Kazuki Miyaichi (Rena Nōnen), a girl who feels that she does not receive any love from her mother. As she carries anxiety about not being needed by anyone, she begins to feel attracted to a juvenile delinquent named Hiroshi Haruyama (Hiroomi Tosaka).
Tsumugi published the manga in Shueisha's Betsuma magazine between January 1986 and May 1987, and Shueisha published four compiled volumes. The manga has 7 million copies in print. Takahiro Miki (Solanin, Bokura ga Ita) is directing the film, with scripts by Tomoko Yoshida (Kanojo wa Uso o Ai Shisugiteru). Tsumugi is supervising the scripts. Yutaka Ozaki performs the film's theme song "Oh My Little Girl."
The film will open in Japan on August 16.
