Kimi no Todoke Live Action Cast Revealed!

The live actiom movie adaptation of Kimi no Todoke was announced last January by ANN. The live action movie now has a cast:

Mikako Tabe as Sawako Kuronuma, nicknamed Sadako. She`s kinda cute! X3

Haruma Miura as Shota Kazehaya, one of the most popular boys in school.

The original manga by Karuho Shiina has sold more than 10 million copies over 10 volumes so far, and an animated version just finished airing on NTV. A television drama adaptation of the manga was widely rumored last year, but the show never materialized.

The romantic comedy tells the story of the shy high school girl Sawako Kuronuma, nicknamed Sadako for her resemblance to the character from the horror film "Ringu." The misunderstood Sawako sees her life completely change when the popular boy Kazehaya begins talking to her, leading her to open up.

Although the manga is still ongoing, the movie version is said to have an original ending. Shooting starts in late April, and the film is set to open in theaters on September 25. Naoto Kumazawa is directing.
