The official website for the live-action film of George Asakura's Piece of Cake manga updated on Thursday to announce that Miliyah Kato will perform the film's theme song "Piece of Cake -Ai o Sakebou-" (Piece of Cake -Let's Shout Our Love-) with Kazunobu Mineta. The pair co-wrote the lyrics, and Yoshihide Otomo (Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru) composed the song.
Kato previously performed the first ending theme song for Toward the Terra and the second ending for Beet the Vandel Buster. Mineta is a member of the rock band Ging Nang Boyz, and is also playing a role in the Piece of Cake film.
The film will open on September 5.
The film stars Mikako Tabe (live-action Kimi ni Todoke) and Gou Ayano (live-action Gatchaman, Lupin III) as the lead couple. Other cast members include Tori Matsuzaka, Fumino Kimura, Kaoru Mitsumune, Tasuku Emoto, Masaki Suda, Tomoya Nakamura, Tamae Andō, Ryū Morioka, Kankurō Kudō, Ryūichi Hiroki, and Kazunobu Mineta.
Tomoro Taguchi is directing the film, Kōsuke Mukai (Crows Explode) is writing the script, and Yoshihide Otomo (Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru) is composing the music.
The original story centers on Shino Umemiya, a woman in her 20s. She turns over a new leaf in her life when she leaves her boyfriend, quits her job, and moves. She gradually develops feelings for her new neighbor Kyōshirō Sugahara, a shop manager. However, Kyōshirō lives with his girlfriend Akari Narita.
Asakura (A Perfect Day for Love Letters, Knock Your Heart Out!) serialized the manga in Feel Young from 2003 to 2008, and Shodensha published five compiled book volumes for the entire series. Asakura launched a spinoff manga about Akari in Shodensha's Feel Young magazine in March.
