Bokura ga Ita/We Were There's Film Trailer Streamed

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
2-part live-action film of Yuuki Obata's manga to open in Japan in March, April

The official website for Takahiro Miki's two-part live-action film adaptation of Yuuki Obata's We Were There (Bokura ga Ita) romance manga began streaming a 91-second trailer for the films on Wednesday. (To view the trailer, on the linked page, click on "予告編" from the right-hand menu.)

Both We Were There films will star Toma Ikuta (Akihabara @ DEEP) and Yuriko Yoshitaka (Gantz). The story follows a girl named Nanami Takahashi (Yoshitaka) as she struggles with her decade-long relationship with Motoharu Yano (Ikuta), her high school's most popular boy who has his own issues from his past.

The male rock group Mr. Children will perform the theme songs for both films. The two films will open on March 17 and April 21 of next year.

The 14 volumes of the manga have sold over 10 million copies in Japan since 2002. Viz Media published the 13th volume in North America last month, and the 14th volume is slated for release next May. The manga already inspired a television anime series from Artland in 2006.
