Film starring Tsubasa Honda, Masahiro Higashide to open on December 13

TOHO began streaming a 30-second promotional video on Friday for the live-action film adaptation of Io Sakisaka's Ao Haru Ride (Blue Spring Ride) manga. The film will open in Japan on December 13.

The trailer's narration is as follows:

Blue Spring is... the radiance of the moment. Blue Spring is... sweet, dazzling. Blue Spring is... fragile, painful, fleeting. Blue Spring is... always making mistakes.

The story revolves around Futaba Yoshioka (played by Tsubasa Honda), a girl who was in love with a boy named Kō Tanaka (played by Masahiro Higashide) in middle school. However, after a misunderstanding, their relationship as friends ends when he transfers schools over summer vacation. In high school, her world is turned around once again when she meets Kō again, this time under the name of Kō Mabuchi.

The cast for the film also includes Yua Shinkawa as Shūko Murao, Ryō Yoshizawa as Aya Kominato, Izumi Fujimoto as Yūri Makita, Yū Koyanagi as Yōichi Tanaka, Yudai Chiba as Tōma Kikuchi, and Mitsuki Takahata as Yū Narumi.

Takahiro Miki (Solanin, Hidamari no Kanojo, We Were There) is directing the film off a script by Tomoko Yoshida (Gaku, Kanojo wa Uso o Ai Shisugiteru).

The manga also inspired an anime adaptation in which Maaya Uchida, Yuuki Kaji, Mikako Komatsu, Ai Kayano, Kenn, and Daisuke Hirakawa play the respective roles of Futaba Yoshioka, Kō Mabuchi, Shūko Murao, Yūri Makita, Aya Kominato, and Yōichi Tanaka. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series and Crunchyroll is currently streaming the series as it airs in Japan.
