Live-Action Haganai Film's Full Trailer Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo

The Japanese film site Cinema Cafe began streaming the full trailer for the live-action film of Yomi Hirasaka's Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (Haganai) light novel series on Wednesday. The trailer features the theme song "Hitotsu Dake" (Just One) by the three-member band Kera Kera.

Hirasaka and Buriki's original Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai light novels revolve around Kodaka Hasegawa (Kōji Seto) — a half-Japanese/half-British transfer student whose delinquent-like blonde hair and fierce eyes scare people.
Kodaka and a seemingly perpetually sullen girl named Yozora Mikazuki (Kie Kitano) decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for misfits who want to make friends.
The two are eventually joined by five others. Mio Otani plays Sena Kashiwazaki, 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.
Sayu Kubota plays Kodaka's younger sister Kobato. Hasegawa
Momoka Yamada plays Maria Takayama, a girl in a nun costume with a love for potato chips and a somewhat impertinent nature
Model and actor Louis Kurihara plays the "cold-hearted student council president" Saionji. (This character is one unique to the film — one that does not appear in the the original light novel series.) Saionji is a tyrant who is shutting down lowly clubs such as Rinjinbu.

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 6.22 million copies in print. It already inspired two television anime series with video anime spinoffs as well as a manga.
