We’ve seen Sato Takeru and Kamiki Ryunosuke as Mashiro Moritaka and Takagi Akito back in May 2014… but I thought you guys might want to see this promotional leaflet, since the illustrations they are holding originals by Obata Takeshi!
The film is a youth drama that depicts the struggles of 2 high school students: Moritaka Mashiro and Takagi Akito, as they strive to be a successful mangaka pair that aims to be serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump. The poster shows the two protagonists holding an illustration drawn by the manga artist, Obata Takeshi-sensei, himself.
In addition to Sato & Kamiki, the film also features a star-studded supporting cast headed by prolific young actor Sometani Shota as their rival mangaka - Niizuma Eiji, Komatsu Nana as the heroine - Azuki Miho, Yamada Takayuki, Lily Franky, Kudo Kankuro, Kiritani Kenta, Sarutoki Minagawa and Arai Hirofumi. The film is directed by One Hitoshi (Moteki).
"Bakuman" will be in Japanese theaters on October 03, 2015.
Now I’m looking forward to the movie even more! Thanks to Nelson for sending this in!
