The official website for the forthcoming live-action film adaptation of Non Tamashima’s romance shoujo manga Moekare wa Orange-iro / My Boyfriend is Orange has released a 30-second teaser trailer introducing its two main cast members – Meru Nukumi and Hikaru Iwamoto (a member of Johnny & Associates’ boy idol group Snow Man).
The story centers on Moe Sasaki (Nukumi), a high school girl who moves in with her family after the death of her father. Unable to get along with her classmates, Moe was a “loner” until she was rescued by Kyosuke Ebihara (Iwamoto), a firefighter, at her high school’s fire drill. Although he is blunt, Kyosuke is kind and mature, and he gradually gives her courage, and she becomes more and more attracted to him as she tries to break free from being a loner.
The teaser trailer begins with a scene set on a school rooftop. It shows Ebihara walking toward Moe, saying, “I’m here to rescue you.” Moe is carried by Ebihara and “rescued” by him, shouting “Something’s not right! Something is wrong~!”
It has been also announced that the Shosuke Murakami (One Week Friends, Promise Cinderella)-directed film is set to be released in Japan on July 8, 2022.
