Live-Action Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu's Full Trailer Streamed

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Manga-based film of old-fashioned girl & moden boy's love-hate relationship opens on December 8

The Japanese website Cinema Today began streaming the first full-length trailer for the live-action film adaptation of Kanan Minami's Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu shōjo romance manga last week. Emi Takei (live-action Rurouni Kenshin's Kaoru, Ai to Makoto's Ai) stars as the old-fashioned "Showa-era girl" Tsubaki Hibino opposite Tori Matsuzaka (We Can't Change the World. But, We Wanna Build a School in Cambodia, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, .hack//The Movie), who plays a "modern" boy named Kyōta.

Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu began serializing in Sho-Comi in January 2008, and it just ended last November. The manga's 14 compiled book volumes have sold over eight million copies. The manga already inspired two anime DVDs.

Takeshi Furusawa (Ghost Train, Another) is directing the film for a December 8 release in Japanese theaters.
