posted on by Karen Ressler
A live-action film adaptation of Nonki Miyasu's 1980s Weekly Shonen Jump manga Yarukkya Knight has been green-lit. The film is slated to open select theaters on May 23, and stream on Niconico the same day.
Tomoya Nakamura (Aoi Honō) plays the lecherous male lead Gōsuke Makoto, and non-no magazine model Nina Endo plays the female lead Shizuka Misaki. Other cast members will include Reiya Masaki and Erisa Yanagi.
In the story, Gōsuke is a hentai-lover who transfers into a new school where he clashes with Shizuka, the president of the government club who imposes strict rules on the male students against perverted behavior.
