posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Shochiku began streaming a new clip for the live-action film of Ryoko Fukuyama's shōjo manga Anonymous Noise (Fukumenkei Noise) on Thursday. The clip features Nino (played by Ayami Nakajō) singing a cappella on the rooftop of her school. Nakajō underwent vocal training for several months before filming began for the movie. The video then ends with a short trailer.
The movie will premiere on November 25 in Japan.
The film stars:
Ayami Nakajō (live-action Lychee Light Club, Setoutsumi) as protagonist Nino
Jun Shison (live-action anohana special's Yukiatsu) as Yuzu (below left) and Yūta Koseki (live-action Donten ni Warau/Laughing Under the Clouds) as Momo (right)
Hayato Isomura (below left) as Kuro, Erina Mano (center) as Miō, and Yōsuke Sugino (right) as Haruyoshi
Kōichirō Miki (Shokubutsu Zukan: Unmei no Koi, Hiroimashita) is directing the film, and he and Rie Yokota (live-action Gokusen) penned the script. "in NO hurry to shout," the film's in-story band, are performing the film's theme song "Close to me." Rock band MAN WITH A MISSION are performing the ending theme song "Find You." The band created the song specifically for the film, after reading the original manga.
Fukuyama launched the manga series in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine in April 2013. Hakusensha published the 13th compiled book volume on June 20, and will publish the 14th volume on November 20. 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…
A 12-episode television anime adaptation of the manga premiered in Japan on April 11. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime and streamed it on Amazon's Anime Strike service in North America. Crunchyroll streamed the series outside of the U.S.
