posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Kotomi Aoki's Kanojo wa Uso o Ai Shisugiteru manga began streaming a full trailer on the film's website this week. The trailer features MUSH & Co.'s theme song "Ashita mo" as well as the song "Sayonara no Junbi wa, Mō Dekiteita" by Crude Play, the real-life counterpart to the story's fictional band.
The story centers around Aki Ogasawara, a "sound creator" who composes for the popular band Crude Play and earns over 100 million yen (about US$1.3 million) a year. Despite this, he conceals all of this and calls himself a NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training). Seeking a life outside of music, he begins seeing a high school girl named Riko Koeda. However, what Aki does not know is that Riko is actually a huge fan of Aki's music. Even with his girlfriend, Aki cannot escape the world of music.
The film stars Takeru Satoh (live-action Rurouni Kenshin) as Aki and newcomer Sakurako Ōhara as Riko. The film's cast also includes Shohei Miura, Masataka Kubota, Kōki Mizuta, and Kōdai Asaka as the Crude Play band members. The actors perform the movie's theme song. Ryō Yoshizawa, Yūki Morinaga, Takashi Sorimachi, Saki Aibu, and Mitsuki Tanimura round out the cast.
Koizumi Norihiro (FLOWERS, Gachi ☆ Boy, Taiyō no Uta) is directing the film.
The film will open in theaters in Japan on December 14.
