The live action movie adaptation of Kazune Kawahara’s manga Sensei! released a 90-second trailer! Also, the full title of the movie has been announced to be Sensei…Suki ni Natte mo Ii Desu Ka? (Sensei!…Can I fall in love with you?)
Sensei! is a love story involving Kousaki Ito (played by Toma Ikuta), a teacher who always thinks about his students first, and Hibiki Shimada (played by Suzu Hirose), a pure high school student. In the new trailer the song ‘Uta Usagi’ of Spitz starts playing in the background as Hibiki is trying to express her feelings of first love to a shaken Ito-sensei. At one point, she is standing in the rain crying and tells Ito-sensei, ‘Even if you don’t return my feelings, I just want to be able to like the person I like.’ At another point Hibiki is seen wearing her self-made wedding dress, which ends in a surprising kiss from Ito. With scenes like this in the trailer, the movie definitely is one to look forward to! The official homepage also uses the scene where Ito is getting closer to kiss Hibiki as the main visual, so we can admire the picture in detail!
Sensei! will come into Japanese cinemas on 28 October 2017. Takahirio Miki (Aoharu Ride, Hot Road) is directing the movie and Mari Okada (Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, The Anthem of the Heart) is writing the script.
