posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
A trailer for the live-action adaptation of Taku Tsumugi's Hot Road shōjo manga began streaming on Thursday. The trailer features the theme song "Oh, My Little Girl" by Yutaka Ozaki.
The manga revolves around Kazuki Miyaichi (Rena Nōnen), a girl who feels that she does not receive any love from her mother (Yoshino Kimura). As she carries anxiety about not being needed by anyone, she begins to feel attracted to a juvenile delinquent named Hiroshi Haruyama (Hiroomi Tosaka). Ryōhei Suzuki also stars as Tōru Tamami, the leader of the Nights gang.
Tsumugi published the manga in Shueisha's Betsuma magazine between January 1986 and May 1987, and Shueisha published four compiled volumes. The manga has 7 million copies in print. Takahiro Miki (Solanin, Bokura ga Ita) is directing the film, with scripts by Tomoko Yoshida (Kanojo wa Uso o Ai Shisugiteru). Tsumugi is supervising the scripts. Yutaka Ozaki performs the film's theme song "Oh My Little Girl."
The film will open in Japan on August 16.
