posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Yuki Shiraishi's Anoko no Toriko manga announced on Tuesday that the film will open in Japan on October 5. The website also revealed a teaser video and poster visual.
Ryō Miyawaki is directing the film, and Taeko Asano (live-action NANA, Clover, Happy Marriage!?) is penning the script.
The cast includes (from left to right in image above):
- Yūko Araki as Shizuku Tachibana
- Ryō Yoshizawa as Yori Suzuki
- Yousuke Sugino as Subaru Tōjō
The manga centers on three childhood friends in a love triangle. Yori moved back to the countryside, and started wearing glasses and not being noticed by girls. Meanwhile, Shizuku entered the entertainment industry alongside Subaru, and both began working as a model and actor, respectively. But when Yori turns 16, he re-enters their lives.
Shiraishi launched the manga in Shogakukan's Sho-Comi magazine in 2013. Shogakukan published the fifth volume last July.
