Momoko Kōda's Sensei Kunshu (Teacher Monarch) manga is inspiring a live-action film adaptation that will open in Japan in 2018. The official website for the film revealed on Monday that actor Ryōma Takeuchi (below left) will play the teacher Yoshitaka Hiromitsu and actress Minami Hamabe (below right) will play the female lead Ayuha Samaru.

Shō Tsukikawa (My Little Monster live-action film) is directing the film, and Erika Yoshida is writing the screenplay.

Sensei Kunshu is a romantic comedy about the straightforward high school girl Ayuha Samaru and her relationship with her cool-headed teacher Yoshitaka Hiromitsu. Yoshitaka also happens to be the older brother of Kōsuke Hiromitsu from Kōda's previous manga, Heroine Shikkaku (Failure as a Heroine).

Kōda drew the Sensei Kunshu manga in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine from 2013 to 2017. Shueisha shipped the 13th and final compiled volume on August 25.

Heroine Shikkaku also inspired a live-action film adaptation that screened in Japanese theaters in September 2015.
