posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Retailer HMV is listing the cover for the May issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine, which reveals that Rin Mikimoto's Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight (Gozen 0-ji, Kiss Shi ni Kite yo) manga is getting a live-action film adaptation. Both the magazine and the manga's 10th compiled book volume will ship on Friday.
Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English, and the eighth volume shipped on December 4. The company describes the story of the first volume:
At school, Hinana is an honors student, respected by all her classmates. She's totally above things as juvenile as crushes and dating. Secretly, though, she has but one wish: To have a fairy-tale romance. One day, a super-hot celebrity named Kaede shows up at Hinana's high school to shoot a movie, and it becomes difficult to keep up her act. By pure chance—or y'know, fate!—Kaede reveals his own ridiculous personality to Hinana, and her ordinary life turns breathtakingly romantic! Or just really, really … weird?!
Mikimoto launched the manga in the magazine in 2015, and the ninth volume shipped on November 13. The manga is nominated in the Best Shōjo Manga category for the 43rd annual Manga Awards.
