Film based on Inio Asano's manga opens on August 20

The official website for the live-action film of Inio Asano's A Girl on the Shore (Umibe no Onna no Ko) manga unveiled a trailer and main visual for the film on Monday.


The film will open in Japan on August 20. Atsushi Ueda is directing, writing, and editing the film. Happy End will perform the insert song "Kaze wo Atsumete" and World's End Girlfriend will compose the background music.

The film will star:

  • Ruka Ishikawa as Koume Satō
  • Yuzu Aoki as Keisuke Isobe
  • Ōshirō Maeda as Shōta Kashima
  • Seina Inata as Keiko Kobayashi
  • Yūki Kura as Misaki
  • Jun Murakami as Keisuke's father

Vertical published the manga's one compiled volume in 2016, and it describes the story:

When Koume and Keisuke's relationship begins to take shape, it is apparent that they are both searching for something. Maybe Keisuke wants something more than a kiss from the fair Koume. Maybe Koume is looking for someone better than Misaki, the local playboy. But what they find in each other over the course of a summer might be far greater than anything they were expecting.
Their lives are going to change. And this will all transpire before high school exams!

Asano launched the series in 2009 and ended it in July 2013.

Viz Media published Asano's previous series Solanin, What a wonderful world!, and Goodnight Punpun, and also publishes Asano's ongoing series Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction. Fantagraphics Books published Asano's horror manga Nijigahara Holograph in 2014.
