Kimi ni Todoke Live-Action Film Announced

+ posted by Xadyu in Site News on Jan 8, 2010 10:28
Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret Magazine is announcing that a live-action adaption of the manga Kimi ni Todoke has been green-lit.

Karuho Shiina's high school slice-of-life series serialization started back in 2005. It's 10th volume is to be released this month in Japan.


A scan of Bessatsu Margaret's announcement


The story follows the story of a high school girl, Sawako Kuronuma. A girl with such long black hair and pale skin that leads to other kids calling her the name of Sadako. Mostly known from the original "The Ring" films. Her life starts to change after receiving little help from the popular boy, Kazehaya and other classmates.

More details about the live-action film adaption will be provided in Bessatsu Margaret's next issue. It will also include a message of the manga author herself.

In North America, Viz Media is releasing it's third volume this month. The manga has previously already been adapted in an anime series that premiered last October.

Kimi ni Todoke was also nominated for the first Manga Taisho Awards in 2008, and it won the Best Shōjo Manga award in the 32nd Annual Kodansha Manga Awards that same year.
