Shō Hirano, Yūna Taira star in film slated for next spring

Amu Meguro's Honey So Sweet manga is inspiring a live-action film that is slated to open in spring 2018.

Shō Hirano of the Johnny's Jr. idol group Mr. KING will play Taiga Onise and Yūna Taira (live-action ReLIFE, Sagrada Reset) will play Nao Kogure. Koji Shintoku and Junpei Yamaoka, the director and writer for the live-action Peach Girl film, will work together again on Honey So Sweet.

Viz Media's Shojo Beat licensed the manga and released the sixth volume on April 4. Shojo Beat describes Honey So Sweet (Simply titled Honey in Japan):

Little did Nao Kogure realize back in middle school that when she left an umbrella and a box of bandages in the rain for injured delinquent Taiga Onise that she would meet him again in high school. Nao wants nothing to do with the gruff and frightening Taiga, but he suddenly presents her with a huge bouquet of flowers and asks her to date him—with marriage in mind! Is Taiga really so scary, or is he a sweetheart in disguise?

Meguro began the series in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine in August 2012 and ended the series in November 2015. Shueisha published the eighth and final compiled volume in December 2015. The series was ranked as one of Japanese Bookstore Employees' top recommended comics for 2014.
