The official website for Watashi no Yasashikunai Senpai, the live-action debut of director Yutaka Yamamoto (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya), has been updated with a new full-length trailer. The film is based on a story written by novelist Akira while still in high school which went on to win the Renai Shousetsu (love novel) Contest in 2004.
The story is set on a remote island in the corner of Kyushi called Hitokage, where teenager Yamako Iriomote (Umika Kawashima) finds herself unable to confess her love for a certain upperclassman (Jingi Irie). She’s written countless drafts of a love letter meant for him, but ends up stuffing them away in her pocket. To make matters worse, a particularly obnoxious upperclassman (played by comedian Satoshi Kanada) gets his hands on one of her letters, and Yamako is forced to deal with him to avoid any further humiliation.
“Watashi no Yasashikunai Senpai” will be released by Phantom Film in Japan on July 17, 2010.
