Okada Masaki was casted as the male lead to the live-action movie adaptation of the manga, Himitsu no Akko-chan, a classic manga by Akatsuka Fujio. It was first published in 1962 and will celebrate it’s 50th anniversary next year.
Ayase Haruka was also casted as the lead. (Actually, it was more of Ayase was casted but I made Okada the highlight of this article. Haha!) Himitsu no Akko-chan tells the story of an elementary school student, Kagami Atsuko, who receives a magical compact mirror that lets her transform into anything she wants. The film will be an original story in which she turns into a 22-year old woman, in a variety of roles such as a figure skater, police, cabin attendant, office worker, bike racer and many more. Okada plays her first love, an elite salaryman.
Filming starts this October and the movie is slated to release on September 2012. Directing the movie is Kawamura Yasuhiro.
You dunno how happy I was when I heard/read this news! HAHA! I learned about this yesterday but it didn’t occur to me to post it. Anyway, Koukou Debut is the first manga I read but I’m not yet done with it. Still, OMG I love the story and I can’t waiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttt! I’m so giddy right now! <3
The hit manga series “Koukou Debut” (“High School Debut”) by artist Kazune Kawahara will come to life in a movie adaptation, it has been announced. This month’s issue of Bessatsu Margaret revealed that a film is in the works, but details such as the cast and release date are still unknown.
The original manga ran in the magazine from 2003 to 2008 and was printed as 13 collected volumes. It tells the story of a young girl named Haruna who was completely absorbed with softball during her middle school days, but now that she is in high school, she decides to completely redo her lifestyle and focus on falling in love. In order to increase her popularity with boys, she convinces a good-looking upperclassman to become her coach. Although he makes her agree to not fall in love with him, she naturally does.
More details about the movie will be announced at a later date.
