First Teaser for live action film "Kimi ni Todoke"

The official website for Naoto Kumazawa‘s upcoming live-action adaptation of “Kimi ni Todoke” has been updated with a new teaser trailer.

Based on a manga by Karuho Shiina which was later turned into an animated television series, the film stars Mikako Tabe as a high school student named Sawako Kuronuma. Because of her long dark hair and generally gloomy appearance, she’s commonly referred to as “Sadako” by other students—a reference to the character from Hideo Nakata’s 1998 horror film “Ring”. However, her life begins to change one day when a popular classmate named Shota Kazehaya (Haruma Miura) begins talking to her. His gesture of friendship gives her the confidence to be more outgoing and try things she never would have tried before. Eventually, her gratitude toward him leads to a budding romance.

Toho will be releasing “Kimi ni Todoke” in Japan on September 25, 2010.
