The official website for the live-action film of Ryoko Fukuyama's shōjo manga Anonymous Noise (Fukumenkei Noise) announced the cast for the two male leads on Saturday. Jun Shison (live-action anohana special's Yukiatsu) will play Yuzu (pictured below left), and Yūta Koseki (live-action Donten ni Warau/Laughing Under the Clouds) will play Momo (pictured below right).
Shison and Koseki join Ayami Nakajō (live-action Lychee Light Club, Setoutsumi), who will play protagonist Nino.
Kōichirō Miki (Shokubutsu Zukan: Unmei no Koi, Hiroimashita) is directing the film, and he and Rie Yokota (live-action Gokusen) are penning the script. The production began filming this month, and the release is planned for fall 2017.
Viz Media licensed the manga for North America, and it describes the story:
A girl who loves to sing, Nino Arisugawa experiences her first heart wrenching goodbye when her beloved childhood friend, Momo, moves away. And after Nino befriends Yuzu, a music composer, she experiences another sad parting! With music as their common ground and only outlet, how will unrequited love play out? Since both boys promised Nino that they will find her one day through her singing, she holds on to that hope and continues to reach out with her voice. Now in high school, Nino serendipitously reunites with Yuzu, but she yearns to see Momo again…
Viz Media will release the first volume in English in March 2017.
The manga is also getting a television anime adaptation.
Fukuyama launched the series in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine in April 2013. Hakusensha published the 10th compiled book volume on August 19, and will publish the 11th volume on December 20.
