posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The Mainichi Shimbun newspaper's MAiDiGi TV YouTube channel began streaming a behind-the-scenes video of the live-action film adaptation of Daisuke Suzuki and Keisuke Hiya's Gangoose manga on Wednesday. The video shows the choreography for a fight scene featuring the character Andō (MIYAVI).
The film will open in theaters in Japan on November 23.
The main cast includes:
Mahiro Takasugi as Saike, the group's intel man and planner
Daichi Watanabe as Takeo, the group's driver
The manga centers on three boys named Kazuki, Saike, and Takeo, united by their shared experience of parental abuse and spending their youth in reform school. They decide that in order to survive, they need to become criminals and embark on an extortion racket together.
Reporter and writer Suzuki (no relation to the OniAi writer) and artist Hiya launched the manga in Kodansha's Morning magazine in 2013 and ended it in January 2017. Kodansha published the manga's 16th and final compiled book volume in April 2017. The manga contains situations that are based on true stories through information that Suzuki had collected. Suzuki himself served as a crime reporter for 13 years, and he has written numerous nonfiction books based on crime and poverty in Japan.
