New stills show club as they play a VR "galge"

The staff of the live-action film adaptation of Yomi Hirasaka's Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (Haganai) light novel series has revealed more stills from the film.

The below feature the club as they play a virtual reality "galge" (or gal game, a visual novel romance simulation aimed at men) that character Rika Shiguma (played by Mao Kanjō) created, as they try to help Sena Kashiwazaki (played by Mio Otani) who has become a shut-in, and as they are sitting around their table. One image also features Sena in a bathing suit.

See gallery below for the rest of the stills.

Additionally, the staff revealed that the three-member band Kera Kera is performing the film's theme song "Hitotsu Dake" (Just One).

Hirasaka and Buriki's original Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai light novels revolve around Kodaka (played by Kōji Seto) — a half-Japanese/half-British transfer student whose delinquent-like blonde hair and fierce eyes scare people — and a seemingly perpetually sullen girl named Yozora (Kie Kitano). The two decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for misfits with hardly any friends.

Mio Otani plays Sena, a beautiful girl who treats her male admirers like slaves but has never had any female friends. Sara Takatsuki (Otomen, GTO, Daily Lives of High School Boys) plays Yukimura Kusunoki, a youth who looks female, but claims to be a boy. Mao Kanjō plays the brilliant and perverted Rika Shiguma. Additionally, Sayu Kubota and Momoka Yamada will play Kobato Hasegawa and Maria Takayama, respectively.

Takurō Oikawa wrote the screenplay and directed the film, which is slated to open on February 1, 2014. Hirasaka stated previously that the the film will be an original story, so as not to recreate the original school romantic comedy light novels.

The light novel series' eight volumes have 6.1 million copies in print. It already inspired two television anime series with video anime spinoffs as well as a manga.
