Takeru Sato and Ryunosuke Kamiki cast for the live action adaptation of Bakuman

1: 三毛猫φ ★@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:07:39.74 ID:???
Bakuman, the story of two young boys who dreamed of becoming mangakas and succeeded in doing so, will be making its way to the silver screen in 2015, with Takeru Sato and Ryunosuke Kamiki playing the parts of the two protagonists. Hitoshi Ohne of Moteki fame will be calling the shots.

Bakuman was created by the duo Tsugumi Ohba (writer) and Takeshi Obata (illustrator), the same pair who spawned the hit DEATH NOTE. Bakuman was published in Shuukan Shonen Jump from 2008~2012. Tha manga was a huge hit, having 20 volumes, and sold over 15 million copies. The anime version also lasted for 3 seasons from 2010~2013. Moritaka Mashiro (Saiko), a highschool boy who's a very talented illustrator, was persuaded by the genius Akito Takagi (Shuujin) of the same class, an aspiring manga writer, to form a pair and publish their own manga series. The manga tells the story of this duo as they eventually achieved their dream of running a manga on Shonen Jump and the struggles that come along with it. Sato will be playing the role of Moritaka, while Kamiki will be playing Akito.

Kamiki comments: "I really love the manga and read it so much that I worn out the comic books so I'm thrilled about this". Sato comments: "I will do everything to the best of my ability to convey the history, the reality, and the wonders of Japanese manga and animation to the rest of the world". Director Ohne comments: "I wanted Sato-kun and Kamiki-kun to play the roles, so this is perfect! I myself had to give up my dream of becoming a mangaka when I was in grade school, so I will pass on this dream to Moritaka and Akito, and make it happen in this movie!!"

The color doesn't seem right

4 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:09:15.28
It would be better if it's a combi between me and Kamiki-kun
5 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:09:36.97
It should've been cast the other way around

22 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:13:08.64

( ´∀`)人(´∀` ) Buddies
45 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:20:23.46
That's what I thought too
99 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:35:56.32 ID:q/

(´・ω・`)人(´・ω・`) Buddies!
I want to see Takeru Sato in glasses again
162 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:02:08.02
(*´・ω・)(・ω・`*) Right?
192 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:19:19.37
That's what I thought
196 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:23:20.23

6 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:09:43.87 ID:2/
I do think that these manga creators were amazing for getting all these children readers hooked on being mangakas
7 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:09:52.44
What about Eiji?

9 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:10:04.20
Looks like Takeru Sato's always doing these live action adaptations of Jump animes
12 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:10:44.39
I guess a live action version is feasible with this cast
13 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:10:46.71
They should switch roles

17 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:12:22.58
You think so too?

14 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:11:09.37
Kamiki-kun's relatively small so he can still barely pass off as a high school student, but Takeru Sato's 25...
21 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:12:58.87
They wanted to put Takeru Sato in the top bill so much that they even had to reverse the roles, huh...
23 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:13:42.53
Takeru Sato's being used quite a lot, huh

38 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:19:09.55
二人ともアミューズだから 事務所持込み企画じゃね
Both of them are from Amuse so it must've been a proposal brought in by the agency

138 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:48:55.11
Amuse: "We're not too fond of the idea of having Sato play a supporting role next to Kamiki.. If you can't accept this, then we'll propose this to someone else."
The moment that the agency's authority has been put into play already makes this a crappy movie.

46 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:20:45.01
Seeing how the agency's using its power to full effect makes me lose interest
199 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:23:57.98

If we're just thinking about Amuse's actors, then
Saiko: Ryunosuke Kamiki
Shuujin: Haruma Miura

Would've been a more viable option. But I guess they wouldn't be able to attract as much viewers with this cast.
25 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:14:00.61
A 20 and 25-y/o as middle schoolers, that makes my heart race
26 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:14:15.35
Gouriki's warming up
27 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:14:27.88
Their ages aren't that close to each other's, right? How old is the guy that Sato will be playing?
28 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:15:55.87
Should be the other way around
31 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:17:09.59
I thought, "Yeah, this'll work", but when I realized it, it was actually the other way around
35 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:17:56.30
No matter how much you think about it, it's supposed to be reversed
40 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:19:27.07
It definitely should be the other way around, but I think Kamiki will do something about this
48 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:21:03.57
Why, if it isn't Kenshin and Sojiro

53 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:21:48.04
Maybe ONE OK ROCK for the theme song?
56 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:22:58.86
I grew to hate these 2 protagonists as the story progressed and stopped reading it w
Why did they suddenly think of turning this into a movie just now?

62 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:24:07.03
Megocchi as the heroine
63 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:24:18.07
When are they going to stop playing roles of highschoolers just because they're small?
71 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:28:36.65
Another movie that revolves around the casting
73 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:29:30.79
The manga was good until they became mangakas
81 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:31:33.59
多分これは面白い映画になる 根拠はありません
I think this will turn out to be an interesting movie. I have no grounds on this, though.
167 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:06:27.07
モテキは面白かったな バクマン当たるかな?
Moteki was good. Will Bakuman become a hit?
91 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:33:22.03
あの役誰がやるかな ナルシストっぽくてラッコの漫画書いてと奴
I wonder who'll play the narcissistic-looking guy who drew the otter manga?

98 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:35:28.23
Hirosue would like to say a word to Sato who'll be trying to play a middle schooler ↓
106 :名無しさん@恐縮です:2014/05/07(水) 07:41:12.12 ID:YWyQ0undV
It's not on a scale where it's supposed to be made into a movie w
111 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:38:45.01
Takeru Sato's a Shonen Jump actor

120 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:41:49.48
Then he'll be playing the role of Toriko next

118 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:41:18.52
And if they cast Emi Takei as Azuki, then it's entirely Rurouni Kenshin

125 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:44:28.80 ID:uEuHl/
亜豆役は神田沙也加 そのママ役は聖子
Sayaka Kanda as Azuki. Then Seiko as the mom.
126 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:44:33.03
ヒロインは声優目指すんだっけ それなら声優経験ある女優引っ張って来ないと
The heroine wanted to become a voice actress in the story, right? Then they should bring in an actress who's had experience at voice acting.


147 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:53:08.20
I want Fukakyon to play the heroine's mom

194 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:22:18.18
Nounen or Erika Ikuta as Azuki
109 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:38:30.28
ヒロインはめごっちだな 芸能界の掟だから
Megocchi will be the heroine. That's the law of the entertainment world.
150 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:54:14.66
Tatsuya Fujiwara will be playing Eiji Niizuma, then

185 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:15:10.80
If Tatsuya Fujiwara's Eiji then he'll overshadow the main characters

30 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:16:33.63
The problem is who'll play the role of Nakai-san

36 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:18:11.59
佐藤二朗と予想 新妻は浜田岳 ヒロインは川口春奈
I'm predicting Jiro Sato. Then Gaku Hamada as Niizuma. Haruna Kawaguchi as the heroine.

170 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:06:55.28
Won't they actually cast an ikemen actor as Nakai?
164 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:03:03.81
Goro Kishitani as the editor-in-chief

174 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:08:05.97
Won't Hiroshi Abe be good as the chief editor?
178 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:09:54.60
編集部の誰かに北村一輝とか濃い顔だな エイジは誰だろ
Someone with a deep face like Kazuki Kitamura should be cast as one of the editors. I wonder who'll play Eiji.
175 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:08:30.31
漫画の実写化といえば 無駄に性転換されるキャラいるからなー
But when you talk about live action adaptations of mangas, they just unnecessarily change the gender of some characters
94 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:34:00.19 ID:qDPt1Vm/
逆ではないだろ 神木きゅんがどっちでも出来るってだけで佐藤健に高木はできんだろ
It's not reversed. It's just that Kamiki-kyun can be cast as either one, but Takeru Sato can't play Takagi.
95 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:34:05.03
It's totally the other way around
96 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:34:40.55
It's supposed to be reversed~
133 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:46:22.30
I was shocked when I heard that Takeru Sato will be playing Mashiro
135 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 07:47:24.17
The director probably hasn't read the original.
179 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:11:10.20
Reversed thread
236 :名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/:2014/05/07(水) 08:53:56.79 ID:/

So everyone really thinks that they got the casting the other way around, huh. I'm relieved. Sato is much better off playing flashy roles.
