More cast also added for November 1 film adapting Toriko Chiya's romance manga

The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Toriko Chiya's Clover manga updated on Thursday, and began streaming a new trailer and teaser video.

The official website also announced additional cast members:

  • Natsuna
  • Erena Mizusawa
  • Kento Nagayama
  • Haruka Kinami
  • Yasuko Mitsūra
  • Risa Naitō
  • Kenji Murakami
  • Taku Suzuki
  • Rie Shibata
  • Kai Shishido
  • Masahiko Nishimura
  • Yusuke Kamiji
  • The website is also listing that the idol group Kanjani Eight will perform the film's main theme song "CloveR," while female singer JUJU will perform the film's insert songs, "Someday My Prince Will Come" and "When You Wish Upon a Star."

    Previously announced cast members include Emi Takei (Rurouni Kenshin's Kaoru) as Saya and KANJANI Eight band member Tadayoshi Ōkura (Papadol!, Otenki-oneesan, Dr. DMAT) as Susumu. Takeshi Furusawa (Another, Kyō, Koi wo Hajimemasu) is directing the film, and Taeko Asano (NANA) is writing the scripts.

    The original manga series centers on a 21-year-old office lady (OL) named Saya Suzuki. Saya never forgets the boy she liked in middle school, so she isn't interested in romantic relationships. However, this lack of interest begins to dissolve when Saya's supervisor Susumu Tsuge suddenly confesses his love.

    The manga debuted in Shueisha's Bouquet magazine in 1997. Shueisha's Chorus magazine (now renamed to Cocohana) began serializing the story in 2006, and the manga ran in that magazine until 2010. Shueisha published the 24th and final volume in the series in January 2011, and the manga has sold more than 9 million copies.

    Chiya launched the sequel series Clover trèfle in Cocohana in June 2012, and Shueisha published the third compiled volume on March 25.

    The film will open in Japanese theaters on November 1.
