posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
A live-action film adaptation of Rina Yagami's Ani ni Aisaresugite Komattemasu romantic comedy series has been green-lit, with a planned opening in Japan in 2017. The film's cast includes:
(From left to right)
- Ryōta Katayose as Haruka Tachibana
- Tao Tsuchiya as Setoka Tachibana
- Yudai Chiba as Takane Serigawa
The story centers on two siblings: Setoka is an unpopular but romantic high school student, and her brother Haruka is a delinquent youth, but cares for his younger sister more than anything else. The two are not related by blood, but only Haruka knows about this. The abrasive Takane Serigawa, Setoka's first love, returns after many years, and begins to get closer to Setoka again. After that, Setoka is the target of many older men's affections, and it seems like the first popular phase in Setoka's life has begun.
The same team that handled the live-action Kurosaki-kun no Iinari ni Nante Naranai film is returning as the staff for this film, including director Hayato Kawai (live-action Ore Monogatari!!).
Yagami launched the manga in Shogakukan's Sho-Comi magazine in 2015. Shogakukan published the manga's third compiled book volume on March 25, and will publish the fourth volume on September 26.
