The offical website of the Japanese publisher Frontier Works has announced on Friday that a live-action film adaptation of Hyouta Fujiyama's Pure Heart (Junjō) boys-love manga has been green-lit. According to the website, the story of the film will be "somewhat different" from the original three-volume manga series and the two drama CDs.

In this romance story, a writer named Tozaki happens to come across his first high school crush, Kurata, while on assignment. After the assignment, the two go out drinking, and Tozaki ends up confessing his old feelings for Kurata.

Rakuto Tochihara (RH Plus, Aquarian Age, Kamen Rider Hibiki) will play Tozaki, while Yūta Takahashi (Hana Zakari no Kimitachi e: Ikemen Paradise, Café Kichijouji de, The Prince of Tennis musical) will play Kurata. Satoshi Kaneda (Ai no Kotodama) is directing off a screenplay by Hirotoshi Kobayashi (Dr. Pinoko no Mori no Bōken, Miracle Girls) and Kozuru.

Digital Manga Publishing's Juné imprint released the first volume of the manga series in North America last year.

The Sazae-san manga by Machiko Hasegawa has been running since 1946 and will now have it's own Live-Action TV Drama adaptation with Alisa Mizuki, the 32 year-old actress, playing the role of the housewife. The new live-action adaptation has been in the works for Fuji TV for about five years now and producer Yoko Matsusaki of the anime version is working on the new drama version as well.



The anime version of this long running series will be celebrating it's 40th anniversary on Fuji TV this October. Though this new TV Drama version is new for the series, a live action adaptation is not. Tonko Azumaya starred in a 1948-1950 series of live-action movies, and Chiemi Eri starred in a 1956 live-action film, as well as a live-action drsama that ran from 1965 to 1967 on TBS. Even the Television Drama isn't all that unusual; Tomoko Hoshino played Sazae-san in a live-action tv drama on Fuji TV from 1981 to 1985. The last life-action version was in 1992-1996 on Fuji TV with Atsuko Asano.
