The second volume of Ran Igarashi's Worldgaze Clips manga series, which shipped in Japan on Wednesday, announced that Igarashi's previous four-panel manga series Hōzuki-san Chi no Aneki will be adapted into a live-action film, and that a live-action adaptation of some form is also planned for Worldgaze Clips. No further details have been announced.
Hōzuki-san Chi no Aneki is a brother-sister romantic comedy that follows the daily life of Gorō Hōzuki, a high school boy with an older sister named Haru who is unrelated by blood. Gorō is mortified when the self-centered and lustful Haru plays pranks on him. Igarashi published the four-volume manga in Kadokawa Shoten's Young Ace magazine between 2009-2011. A spinoff series, Hōzuki-san Chi no Aneki: Nano Branch, launched in the 4-Koma Ace magazine in 2011. An anime adaptation of the original manga was announced in 2011, but has yet to air.
Igarashi launched Worldgaze Clips, an omnibus collection of coming-of-age teen stories, in 2012 in Young Ace magazine.
