Woah, they look exactly like the original characters.

I managed to watch the director's previous movie, Chasing World, and while it had a couple minor campy moments it was overall a fun movie. So there's a chance the School-Live movie may at least be fun as well, but I'll be waiting for the trailer either way.

I guess I’ll be the douche and say I wish they spend the money on the much needed season 2 and then based off of how well that does you do the live action. The anime was genuinely fun and had some interesting and original elements within the genre. Seems like it’s a shame to put resources into an unnecessary Live Action.

When the main purpose of a Manga Time Kirara anime is to increase the sales of the manga, a live action movie feels like the perfect opportunity to bring in new readers who wouldn't normally consider watching an anime show, but would totally be down to watch a movie with some cute girls in it.

Plus, it's going to be a couple of years before the manga has enough material to justify a second season (the spoiler[college] arc is much more decompressed than the high school stuff was, so the pacing of a proper adaptation would end up being significantly different).

What? They don't look anything like the original characters, which is quite impossible for live-action adaptations of most anime. It's a matter whether the acting, screenplay, costumes, etc. are faithful to the source material, or deviate as something else interesting.

I very much enjoyed season one of the anime! I would watch the movie as well but honestly would like a second season of the anime! The story is interesting and the journey was on going! Clearly there is more to tell to this tail!
