Toho, the film company behind the Ore Monogatari!! movie and the 1959 Godzilla (which conjures some wonderful images), have posted three new commercial trailers for the live-action adaptation of Kazune Kawahara and Aruko’s shoujo manga series. The standard CM features the movie’s theme song, ‘No. 1’ by Japanese singer-songwriter Noriyuki Makihara.
TV CM Standard Edition:
‘No. 1’, originally released as Mikihara’s 8th single in September 1993, became the top-selling single in the Oricon singles chart in its first week, and went on to sell 670,000 units in total. Makihara has rearranged the song for the occasion, 22 years after its original release, naming the movie edition ‘Special Version’.
Directed by Hayato Kawai, of Hanakage and Hachimitsu Drops, and starring Ryohei Suzuki and Mei Nagano, Ore Monogatari!! (full trailer below) is scheduled to open in Japan on October 31st.
