Looks like Eru Chitanda’s curiosity is making it troublesome for Houtarou Oreki for the live-action Hyouka film as well. And now, the film gets a brand new TVCM from Kadokawa, and they are introducing the main characters. And true to form, the CM starts out with Chitanda’s signature catchphrase…
As then CM shows, the film stars Kento Yamazaki and Alice Hirose as the two respective leads. While Yamazaki plays the genius known as Houtarou Oreki, Hirose plays the ever-curious Eru Chitanda. Together with the other members of the Classic Literature Club, they solve the school’s many mysteries… and Chitanda’s curiosity usually triggers them to action.
Based on the hit Kyoto Animation series, Hyouka, which in itself is based on Honobu Yonezawa’s mystery novel, the movie will follow the adventures of the Classic Literature Club, which not only gathers classic literature stories, but also solves some mysteries.
The live-action Hyouka film premieres on 3rd November 2017 across theaters in Japan. Mari Asato, who made a name with horror flicks like Zero the Movie, will be directing this mystery film.
