Grand Blue is quite infamous for being a diving anime that features more drinking and main characters stripping than actual diving. And now that it’s getting a live-action movie, we finally get our first good look at the film! The staff have now released a new trailer, and it also announces the two main characters. Ryou Ryuusei will play main character Iori Kitahara, while Atsuhiro Inukai is playing Kouhei Imamura. And yes folks, they are going nude!

And to hammer on the point that the actors will go running around naked, they also released a new key visual. Both the trailer and visual also reveal that the movie will premiere on May 29, 2020!

Tsutomu Hanabusa, who also directed various live-action adaptations of other anime/manga like 3D Kanojo and Kakegurui is going to be at the helm of this new project as director. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. Japan is distributing the movie.

As of now, they still haven’t revealed the other cast members and additional staff, so stay tuned for more announcements. Here’s how Kodansha describes the story:

After moving out on his own to a seaside town, Iori Kitahara makes a college debut he never anticipated. A new chapter of his life unfolds, full of diving with beautiful girls and shenanigans with a gaggle of lovable bastards! Idiot-expert Kenji Inoue and au naturel authority Kimitake Yoshioka bring you a glorious college tale filled with booze-fueled antics!
