The staff of the live-action film adaptation of Naoshi Komi’s Nisekoi manga have revealed new details about the film. This includes the film’s two lead roles, and they are Kento Nakajima and Ayami Nakajou. Nakajima, who fans might remember in his role as Yuugo Hachiken in the live-action Silver Spoon, plays Raku Ichijou. Meanwhile, Ayami Nakajou, who appeared in the live-action Anonymous film, will play Chitoge Kirisaki. However, they only revealed those two actors, so the role of Kosaki Onodera is still a mystery for now.
The two actors tried to recreate Raku and Chitoge’s poses from an illustration by mangaka Naoshi Komi in their introduction visual. Meanwhile, Ore Monogatari director, Hayato Kawai, will be at the helm of this project while FINE Entertainment is producing the film. Finally, TOHO will be distributing the live-action Nisekoi film in Japan, and it premieres on 21 December 2018.
Nisekoi would be the latest manga from Weekly Shonen Jump magazine to get a live-action film adaptation. Bleach is getting one, while Rurouni Kenshin, Death Note, and Gintama have had successful live-action films.
