Comedy about hapless would-be manga creator to open in June

Japanese film distributor Shochiku began streaming two television commercials for the live-action film adaptation of Shunju Aono's Ore wa Mada Honki Dashitenai Dake (I'll Give It My All... Tomorrow) manga on Tuesday.

The story centers on Shizuo, a hapless 41-year-old father of a 17-year-old girl. Shizuo dreams of being a manga creator while spending his days working at a menial part-time job.

Shinichi Tsutsumi (SP series, Always: Sunset on Third Street) stars in this film from director Yūichi Fukuda (Yūsha Yoshihiko to Maō no Shiro, One-Pound Gospel, Saru Lock, The 3-Mei-sama: Anime wa Anime de Arissho!, Waimo-kun~Kiiroi Kao Shite Babanban). The acoustic guitar duo Gontiti (Nobody Knows, TO-Y, Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou) is scoring the music.

Aono launched the comedy manga in the magazine in 2007, and the fifth compiled volume shipped in Japan in September. Viz Media will publish the fifth volume in North America in July.

The film will open in Japan on June 15.
