This year is notable for the numerous number of manga series which have been adapted into live-action films and TV dramas. For instance, Death Note is once again relived through a television drama series which premiered in July. It stars Masataka Kubota (Light Yagami) and Kento Yamazaki (L) as the main protagonists of the story.  Hajime Isayama’s Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) also got a two-part live-action film adaptation which features Haruma Miura as Eren Jaeger. The first part was released in Japan last month, while the second installment will be shown on September 19.

And just recently, another series was green-lit for a live-action movie. Ayuko Hatta’s shojo manga Ōkami Shōjo to Kuro Ōji (Wolf Girl and Black Prince) is going to release its film adaptation in May next year. The cast includes Fumi Nikaidō (Erika Shinohara) and Kento Yamazaki (Kyōya Sata). The latter will also play the role of Kōsei Arima in another live-action film adaptation of Naoshi Arakawa’s Your Lie in April

The official website of Ōkami Shōjo to Kuro Ōji movie also uploaded a 13-second clip of the film which presents the cast and cites Ryūichi Hiroki as the director of the film.

The filming will begin in December and will conclude in January next year.

The manga, on the other hand, is still ongoing and is published by Shueisha on Bessatsu Margaret magazine. A 12-episode anime TV series was also aired in October last year until December.

  1. I hope the character here is not as obnoxious as Sata I the manga. On the early chapters, I wanted to jump in the story and beat the heck out of this a**hole, and hammer into Erika’s head she should walk away.
