The official website for the live-action film of Fujita's Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku (Otaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii) manga began streaming a teaser trailer for the film on Tuesday. The site also revealed a new teaser visual for the film.

The film will open on February 7, 2020. Yūichi Fukuda (live-action Gintama) is directing the film.

Mitsuki Takahata (center right in visual above) and Kento Yamazaki (center left) are starring in the film as Narumi and Hirotaka, respectively. Nanao (rightmost in visual below) plays Hanako Koyanagi, while Takumi Saitou (leftmost) plays Tarō Kabakura.

The manga's story centers on the awkward romantic comedy between Narumi, a female office worker who hides her fujoshi lifestyle, and Hirotaka, a handsome and capable company man who is secretly a game otaku.

Fujita launched the manga on the image sharing website pixiv in 2014. In November 2015, the manga moved to Ichijinsha's Comic POOL digital manga magazine. The manga's seventh volume shipped on March 29. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in English, and released the third omnibus volume in November 2018.

The manga inspired an 11-episode television anime adaptation that premiered in April 2018. The anime streamed on Amazon Prime Video inside and outside of Japan.
