Naoshi Arakawa’s manga will be turned into a movie which will star Kento Yamazaki and Suzu Hirose as Kōsei Arima and Kaori Miyazono, respectively. Joining them are E-girls’ Anna Ishii (Tsubaki Sawabe) and Taishi Nakagawa (Ryōta Watari). Yukari Tatsui is the scriptwriter while Takehiko Shinjō is directing the film which is slated to be screened in Japan in 2016.
The manga was published by Kodansha on its Monthly Shōnen Magazine from April 2011 until February this year.
