Kuchibiru ni Uta o Manga Gets Film

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Story follows self-described NEET turned choir teacher

The wraparound jacket band for Taishi Mori's Kuchibiru ni Uta o (A Song on Our Lips) second compiled manga volume announced on Wednesday that it will get a film adaptation.

The story follows Kashiwagi, a stunningly beautiful, self-described NEET (Not in Employment, Education, or Training) part-time teacher who went to a music college in Tokyo. Her old middle-school classmate Matsuyama is now the advisor for a middle school chorus club on Nagasaki Prefecture's Gotō Islands, but she has to go on maternity leave. Matsuyama asks Kashiwagi to take over the club for one year. The chorus club had only female members before, but the arrival of Kashiwagi suddenly attracts lots of boys, resulting in conflict among its ranks. Despite this, the club prepares for NCon, NHK's real-life nationwide school music competition, with its newly diverse roster.

The manga adapts of Eiichi Nakata's novel and is running in Shokakugan's Monthly Shonen Sunday (Gessan) magazine.
