Japanese movie company Stargate announced today that the gag manga "Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou" (Daily Lives of High School Boys), by Yamauchi Yasunobu, will get a live action movie adaptation to be released this fall on October 12th.

The movie will be directed by Daigo Matsui. The trio cast of the main characters will be played by Masaki Suda (as Tadakuni), Shuhei Nomura (as Yoshitake) and Ryo Yoshizawa (as Hidenori). The story will revolve around a cultural festival that the boys' high school organizes together with a girls' high school nearby.

The manga is finished and has 7 volumes altogether. The total circulation is over 2.2 million. It was adapted into an anime earlier in January 2012.

It'll be even funnier if the ones who became the actors are the seiyuus themselves :D

For this anime to actually get a Live Action Movie, this means I'd better start watching the anime now.

Well, I was actually surprised. After that April's Fool joke... this was unexpected. I'm kinda looking forward to this. Still, they could've had chosen actors more similar to the characters... for god sake, why is it so difficult to make them look like the original ones.

LOL A LIVE-ACTION?! Count me in! I loved the anime, one of the funniest anime shows I've ever seen. xD

Definitely watching!

I am already laughing when I saw this news. This will probably deliver well. xDD



I wonder which one of those girls is Ringo or the Literature girl... hmm...

Anyone can identify those casts roles? They don't look similar to the manga casts.

Except for Hidenori(glasses) and Karasawa(hat)

The guy on the left is Tadakuni so Yoshitake is the one beside him. lol

Even though that i see that it has sold quite the number up there but i think that i'll still pass on this one

^ Audition is more like psychology thriller; Yogen is definitely horror; Strange Circus is by the same director who directed Cold Fish which I recommended earlier and it has heavy doses of fetish related sex and violence so I guess it will surely look like horror to some people. I have not seen any of it though, but heard of them before.

If you want to check out Oldboy, don't forget the other two works by the same director which makes up his "Vengeance Trilogy" - Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance.

Also Japan has even more movies on murder mystery and detective genre, so if you like it Japanese movies should be a treasure trove to you.

BTW, I guess it is getting off-topic to talk about thriller movies in this thread, so if you want to continue we should go to PM or Comments on Profile.

Yeah, that is cool. Just bear in mind that both the manga and the movie are adapted from the fiction, and both bear a number of differences from the original fiction.

Also, Liar Game has a TV series (live action) before the 2 movies. You may want to check that out too.

Another recent thriller movie that I would recommend is Cold Fish http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_Fish

After searching a bit, I've found three more (don't know why wikipedia says that all of those are horror movies though, my source is saying that all are thrillers):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audition_%281999_film%29
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yogen
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strange_Circus
Have you seen any of these? Especially last one looks pretty interesting.
Also, I've found Korean thriller which is said to be classic already, Oldboy, need to check this one out as well.

Kokuhaku is an adaptation of a bestseller thriller fiction. And Japan as a long and illustrious history of thriller fiction, and quite many get adapted into movies. Battle Royale is just another example. And thriller manga like "Liar Game" gets adapted into bestselling live action movie, another example.

Never heard about Liar Game though, thanks for that, definitely going to watch this in the near future.

Do they really have that many thrillers? Kokuhaku I mentioned before, is a normal movie, not adaptation of manga/anime, and it was really good. After that, I've tried to find something similar to it, and I didn't find anything that interesting so far.
I'd say that they make more horrors. Well, I'm fine with that as well, since I like this genre too.

Japanese better do more thrillers, I recently watched Kokuhaku, and it was damn epic.
Well, as you said above, Japan has thrillers and no lack of it. It's just that it is mainly in live action movies, not anime. Taste of targeted consumers I guess.

Wooow, it looks damn lame.
I'm not really looking forward to this one, I don't think anime like that will make a good movie. Really, I facepalmed, when I saw picture of that guy in a skirt, jeez :P
