Naoshi Arakawa’a emotionally-charged musical manga, Your Lie in April, is getting adapted into a live-action movie starring Kento Yamazaki as Kousei Arima and Suzu Hirose as Kaori. A new clip from the movie was just released, and it features the two actors performing the classical piece, “Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso” by Camille Saint-Saëns.
Both the original manga, as well the very successful anime adaptation, have been very successful, and have left many with tears in their eyes, and many are expecting the live-action movie to do the same and bring in some feels.
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.
