Voice Actress Kana Hanazawa Stars in Her 1st Live-Action Feature

posted on by Karen Ressler
Hanazawa will also perform the film's theme song

Voice Actress Kana Hanazawa's official website announced on Friday that she will play the lead role in the live action film Kimi ga Inakucha Dame Nanda (It's Definitely No Good You're Not Here), which will open in theaters in Japan this March. This will be her first leading role in a live-action production.

Hanazawa is also performing the film's theme song, which has the same name as the film. The song will be her eighth single and her first ballad.

Tatsuya Murakami, who has handled some of Hanazawa's music videos, will direct the feature and Kenji Kurata is writing the script. Aniplex is distributing the film. The story follows picture book author An (Hanazawa), who falls into a slump after winning a rookie of the year award. She spends her days goofing off with her editor Tomoe and they never get anything done. One day, while she's out looking for her cat Pero, she sees a mysterious message board: "In exchange for bringing back Pero, take the sun from the world. Sound good? An?" She then starts finding more mysterious message boards around town, all in the writing style of her father (Shigemitsu Ogi), a novel author who disappeared when she was young.

Hanazawa is known for many anime roles including Steins;Gate's Mayuri, Psycho-Pass' Akane, Durarara!!'s Anri, and Oreimo's Kuroneko. She also performed theme songs for several anime series.
