The twitchfilm website reports that the UK distributor Third Window Film will release For Love's Sake on DVD and Blu-ray on April 29 2013. The film is Takashi Miike's adaptation of Ikki Kajiwara's Ai to Makoto romance manga.
In the film, Emi Takei (live-action Rurouni Kenshin) plays an angelic high school girl named Ai Saotome, and Satoshi Tsumabuki (live-action Dororo, Dragon Head, Ikebukuro West Gate Park) plays the "ultra" high school delinquent Makoto Taiga in the love story. Kajiwara (Ashita no Joe, Kyojin no Hoshi, Tiger Mask) wrote the original manga with illustrations by Takumi Nagayasu (Mibu Gishiden, The Legend of Mother Sarah) for Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine from 1973 to 1976.
