Film based on teen romance manga opens on November 5

The official Twitter account for the live-action film of George Asakura's Oboreru Knife manga announced on Thursday that the band The Dresscodes will perform the movie's theme song.

The song is titled "Comic Generation," and singer of The Dresscodes, Ryōhei Shima, will be re-recording the song for the movie. Shima is also acting in the film in his first acting role.

The Dresscodes is also performing the theme song "Ningen Video" for the GANTZ:O film. The group will release the single featuring both songs on October 12.

The film will premiere on November 5. The film's main cast includes Nana Komatsu (live-action Kin Kyori Renai, Bakuman.) as Natsume Mochizuki, Masaki Suda (live-action Setoutsumi, Princess Jellyfish) as Kōichirō "Kō" Hasegawa, Daiki Shigeoka (BAD BOYS J) as Katsutoshi Ōtomo, and Mone Kamishiraishi (live-action Chihayafuru) as Kana Matsunaga. Other cast members include Yōichirō Saitō, Goichi Mine, Ayumu Itō, Masami Horiuchi, Miwako Ichikawa, and Mickey Curtis.

Yūki Yamato is directing the film.

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 Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine in 2004, and ended it in 2013. Kodansha published the 17th and final volume in 2014. The manga inspired a spinoff manga Oboreru Knife: Yugyo no Shizuku Iwa no Yume in 2012.
