The anime adaptation of Naoshi Arakawa’s musical manga, Your Lie in April has made a lot of viewers cry, and the upcoming live action version promises to do the same. But before fans wipe their eyes off with tissues, a new key visual image for the film has been released, and it looks very much like the manga’s first volume release.
This live-action movie adaptation will star Kento Yamazaki, who is known to fans as L in the live-action Death Note drama series, and he will be playing Kousei Arima. Suzu Hirose, who played Chihayafuru: Shimo no Ku’s Chihaya, will be playing the film’s tragic female lead, Kaori Miyazono, while Japanese pop singer and E-Girls group member, Anna Ishii, will be playing Kousei’s childhood friend, Tsubaki Sawabe. Finally, rounding out the main cast will be Taishi Nakagawa, who will be playing Ryouta Watari. You can watch the teaser trailer through this link.
Takehiko Shinjou will be directing the movie, while Strawberry Night live-action series’ Yukari Tatsui will be writing the scripts. The movie is slated for release on September 10, 2016, and guarantees to be another tear-jerker, just like the anime.
