The Cinema Today website began streaming a teaser for the second live-action film adaptation of Ryuta Amazume's Nana to Kaoru romantic comedy manga on Wednesday. The film will screen at the Eurospace theater in Tokyo's Shibuya ward from September 8 to 21.
The first Nana to Kaoru film premiered in the same theater on March 19, 2011. Atsushi Shimizu wrote and directed the adaptation produced by Mitsuru Ohshima. Rakuto Tochihara and Maho Nagase starred in the film as high school students Kaoru and Nana.
The original Nana to Kaoru manga follows a boy named Kaoru who still has erotic feelings for his childhood friend and fellow high school student Nana. The pair lives as neighbors in an apartment building, and their relationship develops when they attend high school together.
The original manga's first eight volumes shipped as a set in Japan on May 4. Hideki Okamoto directed an original video animation adaptation, which shipped with the manga's sixth volume in March 2011. Tamami Momose's four-panel spinoff manga debuted in Japan in October 2011. Hakusensha released a limited-edition Nana to Kaoru: Black Label volume in June 2011, and a second volume followed this past May.
