The official website for Tamio Boy to Kuruwase Girl, the live-action film adaptation of Chōkkaku Shibuya's Okuda Tamio ni Naritai Boy - Deau Otoko Subete Kuruwaseru Girl (The Boy Who Wished to Be Tamio Okuda - The Girl Who Drove All the Men She Met Crazy) manga, began streaming a trailer and teaser video for the film on Thursday. Both videos reveal the film's September 16 opening date.

The film stars Satoshi Tsumabuki (upper left in picture below) as protagonist Kōroki Yūji, as well as Kiko Mizuhara (upper right) as Akari Amami.

Other cast members include (from left to right in second row in picture above):

  • Hirofumi Arai as Yoshizumi, Kōroki's senior writer in the "Mare" lifestyle magazine
  • Sakura Andō as Yū Miue, a columnist in "Mare"
  • Lily Franky as Shū Kōda, a freelance fashion writer
  • Suzuki Matsuo as Kinoshita, "Mare's" editor-in-chief

Noriko Eguchi and Yūki Amami are also part of the cast.

Hitoshi Ōne (live-action Bakuman., Moteki) is directing the film and writing the script. The film will use Tamio Okuda's music throughout the soundtrack.

The original manga's story centers on Kōroki, a 35-year old man who uses the life of Japanese singer and songwriter Tamio Okuda as a guide for his own life. He works as an editor at the lifestyle magazine "Mare," where he meets Akari Amami, a mischievous fashion press writer, and falls in love with her at first sight. The manga chronicles the joy and sadness of his relationship.

Shibuya and Fusosha published the manga as a single long-form volume in July 2015.
