The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Kazune Kawahara's High School Debut (Kōkō Debut) shōjo manga is streaming a teaser trailer. In this high school romantic comedy, a girl named Haruna (fashion model Ito Ōno) recruits a boy named Yoh (Junpei Mizobata) to remake her image and get a boyfriend. Under Yoh's "coaching," Haruna transforms from a softball-playing tomboy to a feminine girl. However, Yoh adds one catch to their agreement: Haruna cannot fall in love with Yoh himself. The film will open in Japan on April 1.
