It has been recently announced that Boku no Hatsukoi o Kimi ni Sasagu by Kotomi Aoki will be getting a live action film adaptation!!!

The Sports Hochi newspaper reports that Mao Inoue, the star of Hana Yori Dango and Anmitsu-hime, will headline a live-action film adaptation of Kotomi Aoki‘s Boku no Hatsukoi o Kimi ni Sasagu romance manga in Fall of 2009. Inoue will play a girl named Mayu Taneda who experiences first love with a boy named Takuma Kakinouchi. However, Takuma tries to hide from Mayu the possibility that his heart will stop functioning at any moment after he turns 20. Masaki Okada (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, Robo Rock) will play Takuma. The film will begin shooting in the middle of next March.

Shogakukan serialized the original manga from 2005 to 2008 in Shojo Comic magazine, and it later published over 6 million copies of the manga’s 12 compiled volumes. The manga won best shōjo category in the 53rd annual Shogakukan Manga Awards. The manga is actually a spinoff of Aoki’s earlier manga, Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru. The earlier manga was already adapted into a live-action movie and an animated video.

I’m crying tears of excitement now T.T… This is one of my favorite shoujo mangas ever and Kotomi Aoki is a brilliant artist (but not a fan of BokuImouto btw). Inoue Mao is so adorable and funny in Hana Yori Dango so it’s really interesting to get to see another side of her here. I think she’ll play the lead well.

    @amayalee: I actually like Mao Inoue too ^_^. She’s the very first J-actress that I really grew upon on. OMG I sooo love her on Hana Yori Dango XDD. The manga is genius and moving too.
