Live-Action One Week Friends

Post by Sour Puss on Sat Jan 28, 2017 2:03 pm

Film based on Matcha Hazuki's manga opens on February 18


The story of the manga revolves around Yūki, a boy who wants to become friends with his classmate and desk neighbor Kaori. However, she gently declines his friendship, saying, “But, my... memories of my friends disappear in a week...” Even so, Yūki wants to become her friend, and so the two become friends over and over again as the weeks pass.

Haruna Kawaguchi (Ouran High School Host Club, Say "I love you".) and Kento Yamazaki (Orange, Death Note, Your Lie in April) will play Kaori Fujimiya (seen  in photo below) and Yūki Hase (left), respectively.





The additional cast includes (clockwise from upper left):

   Shūhei Uesugi as Hajime Kujō, a transfer student who knows Kaori's past
   Haori Takahashi as Saki Yamagishi, Kaori and Yūki's classmate and Yūki's childhood friend
   Shigeyuki Totsugi as Jun Inoue, the homeroom teacher of Kaori and Yūki's class
   Masahiro Komoto as Takayuki, Kaori's father
   Seika Furuhata as Mayu Kondō, an original character for the film who is Kaori's friend from junior high
   Sayuri Kokusho as Shiho Fujimiya, Kaori's mother

Both Sora Amamiya and Yoshitaka Yamaya, who voiced Kaori and Yūki respectively in the anime, will voice roles in the film.

Chōtokkyū band vocalist Takashi Matsuo additionally plays Shōgo Kiryū. Shōgo is the close friend of the male lead character Yūki Hase. Other cast members include Sairi Itō, Keisuke Okada, and Ryō Iwase.

The film opens in Japan on February 18. Shōsuke Murakami (live-action Barefoot Gen, Water Boys, Akai Ito) is directing the film, while Yōko Izumisawa (Garo -Goldstorm- Shō) wrote the script.

Hazuki began the manga in 2012, and ended it in January 2015. Hazuki drew a special chapter for the manga in April 2015. Square Enix published the manga's seventh and final compiled book volume in April 2015.

Crunchyroll streamed the anime adaptation as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks has released the anime on home video in North America.

It seems like they're turning alot of manga/anime into live actions series.


I need to find a link for the live action version of Kiki Delivery Service...
