Behind-the-scenes video streamed for film opening on Friday

The staff of the live-action film of Tomoko Yamashita's The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window (Sankaku Mado no Sotogawa wa Yoru) boys-love manga announced on Monday that the film has cast Keiko Kitagawa as Keiko, a lawyer who has been cursed by Erika Hiura.

The staff began streaming a behind-the-scenes video that features Kitagawa and Yurina Hirate, who plays Erika.

The film will open on Friday. The film was previously scheduled to premiere on October 30, but was delayed until 2021 due to the effects of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The film stars Masaki Okada (live-action Gintama, Space Brothers, Future Diary, left in picture below) as Rihito Hiyakawa, and Jun Shison (live-action anohana, Ressha Sentai Tokkyūger, right) as Kosuke Mikado. Yukihiro Morigaki directed the film, and Tomoko Aizawa penned the script. The band Zutto Mayonaka de Iinoni. (Zutomayo) composed the film's theme song "Kuraku Kuroku" (Darker and Blacker).

SuBLime is releasing the manga digitally, and it describes the story:

Shy bookstore clerk Kosuke Mikado has the ability to see ghosts and spirits, an ability he wishes he didn't have, since what he sees usually terrifies him. Rihito Hiyakawa, an exorcist whose supernatural powers are as strong as his social graces are weak, doesn't seem to fear anything, mortal or otherwise. When this odd couple gets together to solve the bizarre cases that come their way, their work methods may not be entirely safe for work!

Yamashita launched the manga in Libre Publishing's Magazine BExBOY in March 2013, and ended it on December 7. Libre Publishing released the manga's ninth volume on September 10. SuBLime released the seventh volume digitally on October 27.

The manga is inspiring a television anime.
