"Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
’s Hirasaka Yomi
on Thursday that the live action film is on its way!
The offer for a live action came in June of 2011, shortly after the production of the anime series. Hirasaka stated that he was not very fond of the idea of a live action movie at first as the story itself may not be a good live action material. However he decided to approve it in light of his sense of crisis regarding the future of the light novel industry. He felt that that industry needs to bring in new people through manga, anime, games, and other adaptations.
Sensei also commented that he is "keeping his hands completely away
" from the live action project, thus scripts and cast remains a mystery. Although sensei is staying away from the project, he still asks readers to watch the film to support the industry.
Hirasaka and Buriki’s original "Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai" revolves around Hasegawa Kodoka whose half-Japanese and half-British and a delinquent look alike was forced into the Rinjinbu (Neighbors Club)
by Mikazuki Yozora , which led to many unexpected turns in Kodoka’s life.
The light novel series inspired 2 anime series, 2 manga series as well as a PSP Galge.
