Takashi Nagayama stars as 30-year-old virgin in an arranged marriage

Ryuta Amazume's Happy Negative Marriage manga will get a direct-to-DVD live-action film starring Takashi Nagayama (The Prince of Tennis musicals) and former gravure idol Saki Seto. Nagayama will star as Keitarō Satō, a 30-year-old virgin, is working hard and living the life of a typical bachelor. His boss and parents set him up with a "miai," or marriage interview. At the interview he meets Shimako Akio (Seto) and falls in love.

The film also stars Shōta Minami (Ultraman: Ultra Galaxy the Movie), Taro Suwa, and adult video actress Nana Nanaumi (live-action Futari H/Manga Stura). Kenji Yokoi (Higanjima television drama) is directing the film.

The DVD will ship on April 2. Amazume serializes the original manga in Shonengahosha's Young Comic magazine, and the fourth compiled volume shipped in Japan last July.

Amazume's Toshiue no Hito college romance manga received a direct-to-DVD live-action drama series last year, and his Nana to Kaoru manga series also received two live-action film adaptations and an original anime video. Seto previously starred in the second Nana to Kaoru film.
