Kazuto Okada's dark romantic comedy manga Ibitsu is getting a live-action film early next year. (Okada's manga is unrelated to Haruto Ryō's manga of the same name.) Hitomi Komatani, a former member of AKB48's sibling idol group SDN48, will star as a high school girl named Madoka Moritaka with sadistic tendencies.
The story revolves around a weak-willed, virgin dollmaker named Keigo Kakiguchi and Madoka, who ends up living with Keigo. Okada launched the manga in Akita Shoten's Young Champion magazine in 2010, and Akita Shoten published the sixth compiled book volume in October.
The rest of the cast include Masahiro Ishida, Azusa Satō, Shūichi Yamauchi, Sasa Handa, Dandy Sakano, Ryōta Nakanishi, and Yoshie Yamashita. Toshiyuki Morioka is directing.
Yen Press published Okada's erotic romantic comedy Sundome in North America.
