posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The staff of the live-action film of Anashin's Waiting for Spring (Harumatsu Bokura) manga revealed a still for the film on Friday. The still shows basketball prodigy Aya Kamiyama (played by Yūta Koseki) on return from America.
The film will open in Japan on December 14.
Mizuki (sic) is a shy girl who's about to enter high school, and vows to open herself up to new friendships. Of course, the four stars of the boys' basketball team weren't exactly the friends she had in mind! Yet, when they drop by the café where she works, the five quickly hit it off. Soon she's been accidentally thrust into the spotlight, targeted by jealous girls. And will she expand her mission to include…love?
Yūichirō Hirakawa (live-action Erased, Rookies the Movie: Graduation) is directing the film, and Satoko Okazaki (Tiger & Bunny, Yanyan Machiko) is writing the screenplay. Office Crescendo is producing the film, and Warner Bros. Japan is distributing.
