posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of the live-action film adaptation of Atsuko Nanba's Ao-Natsu romance manga revealed a poster visual for the film on Thursday. The poster reveals the film's full title as Ao-Natsu: Kimi ni Koi Shita 30-Nichi (Ao-Natsu: The 30 Days I Loved You).
The film will open in Japan on August 1. Wakana Aoi plays the main lead Rio, while Hayato Sano plays Ginzō. Takeshi Furusawa (live-action "Ichirei Shite, Kiss," Love and Lies, ReLIFE) is directing the film, and Yukiko Mochiji (live-action Principal, Aozora Yell) is writing the script.
The manga's story begins when a high school girl named Rio goes to spend summer in the country instead of going to a mixer party in Tokyo. She meets a tough and slightly ill-tempered boy and wonders if the encounter is fate.
Nanba launched the manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend in 2013, and Kodansha released the series in eight compiled book volumes. The eighth and final volume shipped in October.
