Live-Action Chihayafuru Films Get Sequel

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
2nd film opened in Japan on Friday

The staff of the two live-action film adaptations of Yuki Suetsugu's Chihayafuru manga announced on Friday that a sequel has been green-lit. The staff made the announcement at a stage greeting event for the second film Chihayafuru: Shimo no Ku (Chihayafuru: Lower Phrase), which opened in Japan on Friday.

TOHO additionally began streaming a digest video on Friday that summarizes the first film.

The first film, Chihayafuru: Kami no Ku (Chihayafuru: Upper Phrase), opened March 19. The films star:

Norihiro Koizumi (Midnight Sun, Kanojo wa Uso o Ai Shisugiteru) directed both films.

Suetsugu launched the manga in Kodansha's Be Love magazine in December 2007, and Kodansha published the manga's 31st volume on March 11. The series inspired the first 25-episode television anime season from October 2011 to March 2012, and the second 25-episode season aired in Japan from January-June 2013. Additionally, the 22nd volume of the manga bundled an original anime DVD when it shipped in September 2013.
