Watch: First Teaser Trailer for Takashi Miike's New 'Ai To Makoto' Film
Ai To Makoto! Japanese genre legend director Takashi Miike is still on a roll, churning out film after film after film these days. Up next for him is Ai To Makoto, or The Legend of Love & Sincerity, apparently some adaptation of a manga that looks very… colorful. Twitch posted the first teaser trailer and while it's short, and features just a few quick glimpses of footage, it's considerably interesting, to say the least. Is this a musical? I'm not even sure, but apparently it's a love between two high school students. One, the troubled Makoto Taiga, is played by Satoshi Tsumabuki; and the pure, sweet Ai Satome is played by Emi Takei.
Watch the teaser for Takashi Miike's Ai To Makoto or The Legend of Love & Sincerity, via Twitch:
Ai To Makoto is a Japanese manga series written by Ikki Kajiwara and illustrated by Takumi Nagayasu. It was adapted into a live-action television series in 1974 and into three live-action films in the 70s. Directing this adaptation, which I believe is also known as The Legend of Love & Sincerity, is legendary Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike, of everything from Audition to Ichi the Killer to Dead or Alive to One Missed Call to Sukiyaki Western Django to Yatterman to 13 Assassins to Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai and Ninja Kids!!! most recently. We don't expect to see this in the US for quite some time, as it's barely hitting theaters in Japan until June 2012. We'll keep you updated, as it just looks too damn interesting anyway. Thoughts?
