Tsuchiya Tao & Katayose Ryota to star in real-life adaptation movie of "Ani ni aisaresugite komattemasu"

Tsuchiya Tao and Katayose Ryota of GENERATIONS from EXILE will be starring in the real-life adaptation movie of popular manga "Ani ni aisaresugite komattemasu" (I am troubled because my elder brother loves me too much) by Yagami Rina. In this movie directed by Kawai Hayato which will be shown in summer 2017, Tsuchiya plays the lead character Tachibana Setoka while her elder brother Haruka is played by Katayose and her first  love Serikawa Takamine is played by Chiba Yudai. The manga has released 4 volumes to date and accumulated sales of more than 400,000 copies.

Setoka is a senior high school student who is unpopular with guys and has 12 failed confessions of love to date. Fortunately, she is doted on by her cool elder brother Haruka. One day, Haruka comes to know that his younger sister is actually not related to him by blood but chooses to keep it as a secret. Just then, Setoka's first love Serikawa who is a rich medical intern now and has a malicious tongue, reappears after they've not met for a few years and the two of them become close again. Soon after, Setoka suddenly experiences newfound popularity with several guys and faces the dilemma of who to choose for the first time in her life. Details of the three other suitors vying for Setoka's affection will be announced at a later date.

Tsuchiya admitted that she is nervous about playing Setoka especially since many people may wonder about choosing her to play this character. However, she hopes to be able to do well with the support of the director, staff and her co-stars and called upon everyone to look upon her warmly. As for Katayose who is appearing in his first movie, he said that he was worried about his acting skills but will try his best to play Haruka in his own way. As for Chiba who is older than the two leads, he said that both Tsuchiya and Katayose are so cute and he finds them really adorable.
