posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
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.
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.
