Mio Otani to Join Live-Action Haganai Film's Cast
posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Yomi Hirasaka's Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (Haganai) light novel series has announced that 21-year-old actress Mio Otani will play Sena Kashiwazaki in the film. Otani joins Kōji Seto and Kie Kitano as the third cast member.
Takurō Oikawa will write the screenplay and direct the film, which is slated for early 2014. Hirasaka stated previously that the the film will be an original story, so as not to recreate the original school romantic comedy light novels.
Hirasaka and Buriki's original Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai light novels revolve around Kodaka (Seto) — a half-Japanese/half-British transfer student whose delinquent-like blonde hair and fierce eyes scare people — and a seemingly perpetually sullen girl named Yozora (Kitano). The two decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for misfits with hardly any friends. Otani's character Sena is a beautiful girl who treats her male admirers like slaves but has never had any female friends.
