New videos highlight actresses for Kayo, Airi for film opening on March 19

The Japanese manga and anime news website Comic Natalie began streaming a new behind-the-scenes video for the live-action film of Kei Sanbe's Boku dake ga Inai Machi (The Town Where Only I Am Missing) manga on Wednesday.

In the video, Kayo actress Rio Suzuki comments on how director Yūichirō Hirakawa (Rookies: Graduation) is a kind person off the set, but how his personality completely changes when he is directing. While directing Suzuki, Hirakawa says that whether the character turns out to be a good one or a bad one is all up to Suzuki's acting.

Oricon previously streamed another behind-the-scenes video on Monday. In the video, Airi Katagiri's actress Kasumi Arimura discusses the filming of a scene in which a house fire is involved.

Previous videos focused on on the actors playing both the child and adult versions of Satoru.

The manga's story follows Satoru, a struggling manga artist who has the ability to turn back time and prevent deaths. When his mother is killed he turns back time to solve the mystery, but ends up back in elementary school, just before the disappearance of his classmate Kayo.

The film's cast includes:

Hirakawa is directing the film off scripts by Noriko Gotō. The film is slated to open in Japan on March 19.

Sanbe began the manga in 2012, and ended it in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine on Friday. Kadokawa published the seventh compiled volume in December.

An anime adaptation (titled ERASED in the West) premiered on January 7 on Fuji TV's Noitamina block. Crunchyroll and Funimation are streaming the series as it airs in Japan. The anime will depict the manga's ending.
