Death Note's Ken'ichi Matsuyama stars in Bunny Drop film opening on Saturday

The Cinema Today website began streaming a 75-second dance sequence from the live-action Usagi Drop (Bunny Drop) film on its YouTube channel on Sunday. The scene does not appear in Yumi Unita's original "human drama" manga that the film adapts. Sabu is directing lead actor Ken'ichi Matsuyama (Death Note, Detroit Metal City, Gantz) and lead actress Mana Ashida (Magic Tree House) in this film which will open in Japan on Saturday, August 20.

In the story, 30-year-old bachelor Daikichi discovers a little girl named Rin in his grandfather's garden while at his grandfather's funeral. Rin is the unwanted 6-year-old child of Daikichi's grandfather, and Daikichi decides to take her in when no one in the family accepts the responsibility.

Yen Press is publishing the original manga in North America. A separate television anime adaptation had premiered in Japan last month, and Crunchyroll is streaming it outside Japan as it airs.
