Ano Ko no, Toriko Film's 2 New Clips Streamed
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Yuki Shiraishi's Ano Ko no Toriko manga began streaming two more clips from the film on Wednesday and Thursday. In the first clip below, Yori goes into the makeup room as Shizuku is preparing for her first appearance on a variety show, and she asks him to buy her some lipstick. In the second clip, Shizuku sees Yori at her school for the first time and is excited to seem him again. She says to him, "you're my important... you're my super important... friend" to his disappointment. They then exchange contacts on their phones.
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):
- 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.
