Warner Brothers Entertainment Inc. registered the "ookamishojo-movie.jp" domain on August 13. Additionally, a private "ookamishojo_m" Twitter account currently features a heading (pictured at right) that reads:
Fumi Nikaido Kento Yamazaki
Ōkami Shōjo to Kuro Ōji
May 2016 roadshow
(In Japanese the word "roadshow" written in the phonetic katakana alphabet usually refers to a theatrical release.)
Ayuko Hatta launched the Wolf Girl & Black Prince (Ōkami Shōjo to Kuro Ōji) shōjo manga in Bessatsu Margaret in 2011, and Shueisha published the 13th compiled volume on August 25.
Fumi Nikaidō previously played Megumi Fuwa in Mirai Nikki Another:World' and Saki Utagawa in the live-action Hibi Rock film. Kento Yamazaki is currently starring as L in the Death Note live-action TV series, and he will play Kakeru in the live-action Orange film and Kosei Arima in the live-action Your Lie in April film.
The story of Wolf Girl & Black Prince centers around Erika Shinohara, a vain 16-year-old girl who tells her friends about her romantic exploits, but she actually has no boyfriend. She claims that a handsome boy in a candid photo is her boyfriend, but it turns out that boy is a schoolmate named Kyōya Sata. She has no choice but to make him her fake boyfriend. Unfortunately, Sata may look like a sweet person, but he is actually an ultra-black-hearted sadist. Sata takes advantage of Erika's weakness and treats her like his dog.
The manga inspired a 12-episode TV anime series starring Kanae Itō as Erika Shinohara and Takahiro Sakurai as Kyōya Sata. The anime premiered in October 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Sentai Filmworks will release the anime on home video.
The manga also inspired a novel and a drama CD, the latter of which also starred Itō and Sakurai.
