Posted in: Anime News

In a somewhat rare case of 2D meets 3D, the voice actress of Kaguya Shinomiya, Aoi Koga, is set to make a special appearance in the Kaguya-sama: Love is War live-action movie! According to the live-action film’s official website, Koga will appear in the movie as a movie theater employee. In the picture below Koga, left, is together with her character’s live-action counterpart, Kanna Hashimoto. Talk about inception.

Sho Hirano, a member of Johnny’s & Associates idol group King & Prince, is set to play student council president Miyuki Shirogane. On the other hand, student council vice-president and Shirogane’s love interest/eternal rival Kaguya Shinomiya is played by Gintama live-action actress Kanna Hashimoto (pictured above, right).

Other cast members for the film are:

• Hayato Sano as Yuu Ishigami
• Natsumi Ikema as Nagisa Kashiwagi
• Nana Asekawa as Chika Fujiwara
• Yutaro as Tsubasa
• Jiro Sato as Shozo Tanuma as narrator
• Masahiro Takashima as Miyuki’s father
• Mayu Hotta as Ai Hayasaka

The movie is set for a September 6 release in Japan. The live-action adaptation is directed by Hayato Kawai, who also directed the live-action films of My Love Story! and Nisekoi. Script will be written by Yuichi Tokunaga, who also handled the scripts for the live-action of Tonde Saitama and Princess Jellyfish series.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War (or known in Japan as Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai – Tensai-tachi no Ren’ai Zunousen, literally, “Kaguya Wants to be Confessed to: The Geniuses’ War of Love and Brains”) is a seinen manga series written and illustrated by Aka Akasaka. The English licensing rights to the series is held by Viz Media, who describes the manga’s story as such:

”All’s fair when love is war!

Two geniuses. Two brains. Two hearts. One battle. Who will confess their love first…?!

Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are two geniuses who stand atop their prestigious academy’s student council, making them the elite among elite. But it’s lonely at the top and each has fallen for the other. There’s just one huge problem standing in the way of lovey-dovey bliss—they’re both too prideful to be the first to confess their romantic feelings and thus become the “loser” in the competition of love! And so begins their daily schemes to force the other to confess first!”
