Weird Wednesdays: Live-action Arakawa TV Drama, Movie
Posted April 13, 2011on:
No need to check the calendar, April Fool’s Day is really over. However, they really are making a live-action Arakawa Under the Bridge TV drama this summer, and a live-action movie for 2012.
In this week’s Young Gangan magazine, Square Enix and AUTB Partners announced the production schedule, as well as the actors playing Nino and Riku. There’s an official teaser website as well. Pics of the cast after the break.
Kiritani Mirei, primarily a fashion model, plays Nino. Up-and-coming actor Hayashi Kento plays Riku. In the next issue of Young Gangan, due out in 2 weeks, they promise to announce more of the cast.
What I want to know is, who plays Sister? Wait, maybe I don’t want to know.
