“March Comes in Like a Lion” by Chika Umino, the bestselling comic that has swept numerous comic awards in Japan, will be made into a live-action film! The director is Keishi Otomo, who has been breaking new ground in Japanese cinema with his solid character portrayal and action scenes in such films as the “Rurouni Kenshin” series and “Platinum Data”. Set in Japan as it faces a historic turning point leading up to the Tokyo Olympics, the first of the two-part work will tell the story of "today" as the protagonist finds the strength to stand on his own two feet, and the second will tell the story of "tomorrow" as he begins to live a new life with the people he loves. A spirited work of Japanese entertainment will be presented to the world.
