posted on by Egan Loo
The Cinema Today website began streaming a longer web version of the trailer for Takahiro Miki's two-part live-action film adaptation of Yuuki Obata's We Were There (Bokura ga Ita) romance manga. Toma Ikuta (Akihabara @ DEEP) and Yuriko Yoshitaka (Gantz) lead the films' cast.
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 first film will open this Saturday, and the second will open on April 21.
The 15 volumes of the manga have sold over 12 million copies in Japan since 2002, and Obata just ended the manga in February. Viz Media will publish the 14th volume in North America in May. The manga already inspired a television anime series from Artland in 2006.
