Nikkan Sports newspaper has reported that Ju-On actor Kōji Seto is starring in the upcoming live-action movie of Yomi Hirasaka’s light novel series Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (Haganai).
Seto will be playing the role of Haganai’s main protagonist Kodaka Hasegawa. He was a lead star in the 2009 horror movie Ju-On – Black Girl and has portrayed roles like Hiro in Koizora and Wataru Kurenai in Kamen Rider Kiva .
It was also reported that singer/actress Kie Kitano is also cast in the movie. There is no confirmation on the role she will be playing but according the photo below, she may play Yozora Mikazuki.
Kitano has portrayed several roles in movies such as in GeGeGe no Kitaro Sennen Noroi Uta and Jōkyō Monogatari. She is also a gravure idol and has already released 2 photobooks.
Hasegawa Kodaka has transferred schools, and he’s having a hard time making friends. It doesn’t help that his blond hair tends to make people think he’s a delinquent. One day, he runs into his bad-tempered solitary classmate Yozora while she’s talking animatedly to her imaginary friend Tomo. Realizing that neither of them have any actual friends, they decide that the best way to alter this situation is to form a club and start recruiting.
That is how “Rinjinbu”, The Neighbours’ Club, was formed, a club specifically designed for people who don’t have very many friends. As other lonely classmates slowly join their little club, they’ll try to learn how to build friendships through cooking together, playing games, and other group activities. But will this group of relationship-challenged misfits really be able to get along?
