Masaki Suda to star in live-action “Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou”

On Wednesday, Japanese movie company Showgate announced that Yasunobu Yamauchi’s popular gag manga Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou (Daily Lives of High School Boys) will get a live-action film adaptation directed by Daigo Matsui (Afro Tanaka).

Following up on his starring role in last year’s The Boy Inside and Shinji Aoyama’s upcoming film Tomogui (out in September), Masaki Suda will star as protagonist Tadakuni. Shuhei Nomura and Ryo Yoshizawa will play Tadakuni’s high school classmates Yoshitake and Hidenori. Louis Kurihara will play an original character named Saino.

The film’s story revolves around a school festival being organized in a collaboration between Tadakuni’s all-boys school and a nearby all-girls school. Like in the original manga, the boys are clueless about how to deal with girls and wind up putting their stupidity on display in various humorous ways.

The main female students will be played by Anri Okamoto, Mizuki Yamamoto, and Mio Uema. Additional co-stars include Kumiko Shiratori, Sara Takatsuki, Yui Koike, and Eita Okuno.

The manga reached a total circulation of 2.2 million copies and was adapted into an animated series in 2012.

Filming began in Mitaka, Tokyo on January 4 and later moved to Numazu, Shizuoka and Kanazawa-Hakkei, Kanagawa before it wrapped.

“Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou” will be released in Japan in fall 2013.
