Ladies and gentlemen, Nisekoi is getting its own live-action movie, and now, the staff has revealed the two leads! Kento Nakajima, who previously starred in the live-action Silver Spoon movie, will be playing Raku Ichijou, while Ayami Nakajou, who starred in Anonymous Noise, will be playing Chitoge Kirisaki.
The two stars replicated Raku and Chitoge’s poses in one of the manga’s earliest visuals from mangaka Naoshi Komi:
Hayato Kawai, who previously directed the live-action Ore Monogatari movie, will be directing Nisekoi. Fans would also note that the Nisekoi manga previously had a crossover story with the Ore Monogatari manga, so the director really fits in nicely. TOHO will be distributing the movie in Japan starting December 21, 2018.
Nisekoi follows Raku Ichijou, the heir to a yakuza family. One day, he bumps into and gets into an argument with a pretty blonde girl named Chitoge. But afterwards, he finds out that she’s her classmate and is the daughter of the leader of a rival gang. And to prevent an all-out gang war from happening, their fathers force the two of them to have a fake relationship. What’s more is that Raku is in love with a different girl, Kosaki Onodera, and this complicates things further. The manga also received to highly successful TV anime adaptations in 2014 and 2015.
