Theme song is provided by Haruomi Hosono (Happy End, Yellow Magic Orchestra)
Netflix Japan has posted a 60-second teaser trailer for Kanojo (She), the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Ching Nakamura's lesbian drama manga Gunjo, starring Kiko Mizuhara (Mikasa in the Attack on Titan live-action films) and Honami Sato (the drummer of Japanese rock band Gesu no Kiwami Otome).
With Rei's lines, "We have nowhere else to go" and "You're all I have left," the clip vividly shows how the two women's dangerous escape journey with nowhere to go and nowhere to return begins, and is packed with the joy and sadness of truly loving someone.
The adaptation centers on two women - Rei Nagasawa (Mizuhara), who is homosexual, and Nanae Shinoda (Sato), who has been suffering severe domestic violence by her husband. Rei has been in love with Nanae since their high school days, and kills her husband for her. Nanae feels alienated and afraid of Rei, who has committed murder for her, while Rei accepts everything in order to keep Nanae alive. Both of them want love, but they also have disconnected feelings for each other.
Ryuichi Hiroki, who previously worked on several live-action film adaptations of the popular shoujo manga series, including Strobe Edge (2015), Wolf Girl and Black Prince (2016), and Marmalade Boy (2018), is attached to direct. And acclaimed rock musician Haruomi Hosono (Happy End, Yellow Magic Orchestra) provides the theme song.
Kanojo will start streaming on Netflix worldwide on April 15, 2021.
