The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Yuki Shiraishi's Ano Ko no Toriko manga began streaming a new clip from the film on Thursday. The clip shows Shizuku losing her confidence before a shooting for a lingerie commercial, but Yori arrives in a mascot costume to encourage her.
Ryō Miyawaki directed the film, and Taeko Asano (live-action NANA, Clover, Happy Marriage!?) penned the script. Singer Nissy (Takahiro Nishijima) performed 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 sixth and final volume on September 26.
