Spring 2019 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
That was it for the first season of 2019. Many good titles graced our screens, but if we want to be honest, there are too many series in the new season we have been waiting for quite a long time.
A still from the upcoming live action movie adaptation of Yuki Kodama’s Kids on the Slope (Sakamichi no Apollon) has been released.
This is a youthful story about students that deepen their bonds through jazz music. The main character Kaoru Nishimi will be portrayed by Yuri Chinen (member of the pop group Hey! Say! JUMP). Takahiro Miki (The Girl in the Sun, My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday) will be directing the movie.
They have released eight stills that show what the movie will look like. You can look at all the pictures by clicking on the source below! One of the beautiful shots shows Nana Komatsu, who will portray Ritsuko Mukae, and Taishi Nakagawa, who plays Sentaro Kawabuchi, sharing a sweet moment. In another picture, we can see Sentaro playing the drums and we also see the characters Junichi Katsuragi (played by Dean Fujioka) and Yurika Fukahori (played by Erina Mano) in others shots.
The movie will start screening in Japanese cinemas on 10 March 2018.
