George Asakura's Oboreru Knife Shōjo Manga Gets Live-Action Film
posted on by Egan Loo
The November issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine is announcing on Tuesday that George Asakura's Oboreru Knife manga is getting a live-action film adaptation next fall.
The manga tells the story of Natsume, a sixth-grade girl who has to move from Tokyo to a decidedly different town in the countryside. Upon meeting a boy named Kōichirō there, "something" stirs inside her. The story depicts a "teen heart on the brink of ruin," including the conflict and build-up.
Asakura started the series in Bessatsu Friend in 2004, and Kodansha published the 17th and final volume last year. The manga inspired a spinoff manga Oboreru Knife: Yugyo no Shizuku Iwa no Yume in 2012.
Asakura's Piece of Cake manga also inspired a live-action film. Del Rey published part of Asakawa's A Perfect Day for Love Letters manga series in English in 2005, and that manga inspired a live-action television adapation in 2014.
