The Eiga.com Japanese film website began streaming the first trailer for the live-action adaptation of Yasunobu Yamauchi's Danshi Kōkōsei no Nichijō (Daily Lives of High School Boys) gag comedy manga on Friday. The trailer features Team Shachihoko's theme song "Maji Kansha." (Note: To view the trailer, click on "再生する" at the linked website.)
Daigo Matsui (Afro Tanaka) is directing the film. Masaki Suda (Nakuna, Hara-chan, High School Debut, Kamen Rider W) will star in the film as Tadakuni. Other cast members include Shūhei Nomura (2012's GTO, live-action Shinsengumi Peace Maker) as Yoshitake, and Ryō Yoshizawa (Kamen Rider Fourze) as Hidenori.
The film will tell a story of a school festival that is being jointly organized by Tadakuni, Yoshitake, and Hidenori's all-boys school and an adjacent all-girls school. The film will also feature a new original character named Saino, played by Rui Kurihara (Zekkyō Gakkyū). Actresses playing the roles of female high school students include: Anri Okamoto, Mizuki Yamamoto, and Mio Uema. Other supporting cast includes Kumiko Shiratori, Sara Takatsuki, Yui Koike, and Eita Okuno.
The gag comedy manga follows the humorous yet "realistic" everyday life of Tadakuni, Hidenori, Yoshitake, and other students at a boys' high school. Yamauchi launched the manga in 2009, and Square Enix released the seventh compiled volume in December. The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime adaptation last year, and NIS America will release the series in North America on Blu-ray Disc in August.
The film will open in Japan on October 12.
