Film opens on October 5 in Japan

The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Yuki Shiraishi's Ano Ko no, Toriko. manga began streaming a clip from the film on Friday. In the video, Yori is helping Shizuku practice lines, but she gets mad at his flat line reading because her "life depends" on her upcoming audition. He then reads the line "I've loved you forever, probably since we first met" with sincerity.

The film will open in Japan on October 5. The original manga launched a new serialization on July 5 to commemorate the film.

Ryō Miyawaki is directing the film, and Taeko Asano (live-action NANA, Clover, Happy Marriage!?) is penning the script. Singer Nissy (Takahiro Nishijima) is performing the film's theme song "Toriko."

The cast includes (from left to right in image above):

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.
