Poster visual for film starring Ryōma Takeuchi, Minami Hamabe also unveiled

TOHO began streaming a teaser video for the live-action film adaptation of Momoko Kōda's Sensei Kunshu (Teacher Monarch) manga on Thursday. The video reveals the film's August 1 opening. The staff also unveiled a poster visual for the film.


The poster visual is intended to appear like a cover for Bessatsu Margaret, the magazine where Sensei Kunshu was serialized.

Ryōma Takeuchi (below left) will play the teacher Yoshitaka Hiromitsu and actress Minami Hamabe (below right) will play the female lead Ayuha Samaru.

The additional cast, which was announced last month, includes:

  • Taiki Satō as Kotake Sawada, Ayuha's childhood friend that has feelings for her
  • Rina Kawaei as Aoi Nakamura, Ayuha's best friend
  • Yua Shinkawa as Akika Saimon, Yoshitaka's childhood friend, and a famous pianist
  • Riko Fukumoto as Kaho, Ayuha's classmate who has Yoshitaka in her sights

Yūma Yamamoto and Yuki Sasō will also star in the film.

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 last August.

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