New Teaser Clip for Live-Action “Wotakoi” Film Announces Three New Cast Members

Posted in: Anime News

A new teaser clip was released this Tuesday for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Wotakoi (Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii or Love is Hard for Otaku). The 18-second clip reveals three new cast members for the film. Watch the short teaser here!

The new cast members are Kento Kaku (the guy in the pink happi coat and doing wotagei), Tsuyoshi Muro (the bartender), and Jiro Sato (guy in the gray coat and white glasses gesticulating in front of the white board). All of these actors have previously worked with Wotakoi director Yuichi Fukuda, who also directed the live-action Gintama film.

The film is set for a February 7, 2020 release in Japan.

Mitsuki Takahata will be playing the lovable fujoshi lead Momose Narumi, with Kento Yamazaki (yes, he is EVERYWHERE) as her game otaku boyfriend Hirotaka Nifuji. Nanao will be playing Kabakura Tarou (aka the closeted shoujo fan), and Takumi Saitou will be Hanako Koyanagi (aka the handsome crossplayer—who is also a fujoshi like Momose).

Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii started as a Japanese webmanga series on Pixiv, written and illustrated by Fujita. Main character Momose Narumi is a hardcore fujoshi who tries her best to keep this side of her a secret from everyone, especially at work. The story focuses on her dating her childhood friend and gaming otaku Hirotaka Nifuji as they both navigate through the ups and downs of having a romantic relationship with a fellow otaku. Secondary couple Kabakura, a huge shoujo fan, and Hanako, a famous cosplayer, also find ways to deal with each other’s fiery personalities, with Hanako always taking advantage of Kabakura’s secret obsession with shoujo manga to always get her way with him.

A-1 Pictures also adapted Wotakoi as an 11-episode animé series, which aired from April to June 2018.
