Usagi Drop Expects Release in AugustJuly 13, 2011
Well, Yumi Unita’s manga Usagi Drop has received the live-action treatment starring Kenichi Matsuyama and Ashida Mana. Remember what I mention last summer? It is scheduled to be released in theaters August 20, 2011. To refresh your memories, the plot is that Daikichi (Kenichi) is a thirty year old who becomes the guardian of Rin (Mana), the illegitimate six year old daughter of his grandfather. Karina is also starring in Usagi Drop, I am assuming she is playing Daikichi’s love interest.
Aside from the live action movie, Production I.G has started running their anime adaption of the manga on Fuji TV which started July 8. So fans have both the anime and the movie to look forward to! For those interested in watching the anime, Cruchyroll has licensed the anime. Now I need to go read the manga and watch this anime!
Before I forget, here is the trailer for the movie, which is not subbed:
