Netflix Launches Live-Action Film Based On CALL ME CHIHIRO Manga This Month

Two new movie clips were released for the manga-based live-action film Call Me Chihiro that will be premiering later this month on Netflix!

We have some exciting new updates for the live-action film of Call Me Chihiro! ASMIK Ace Entertainment shared two new movie clips from Call Me Chihiro, the live-action movie based on the Chihiro-san comic by Hiroyuki Yasuda. Netflix describes the film:

An unapologetic former sex worker starts working at a bento stand in a small seaside town, bringing comfort to the lonely souls who come her way.

In the opening clip, Chihiro expertly converses with and serves the male patrons of her employer's Nokonoko Bento (set lunch) shop. A older coworker quips sarcastically that her adeptness in handling male customers is to be expected of a former sex worker. Although Chihiro claims that practically everyone in town is already aware of her past employment, the store manager wishes to keep it a secret.

In the second video, a kid approaches Chihiro as she is reading at a park and plays a toy snake prank on her. Don't undervalue grownups, Chihiro warns the youngster, seizing hold of his shirt. The youngster struggles to escape Chihiro's grip and eventually attaches a compass to her arm.

The movie is set to premiere in theaters throughout Japan, as well as be streamed online worldwide on Netflix on February 23rd. The first English subtitled trailer was released throughout Asia back in December.

The film stars Kasumi Arimura as Chihiro. Other cast members include:

  • Hana Toyoshima
  • Tetta Shimada
  • van
  • Ryuya Wakaba
  • Yui Sakuma
  • Itsuki Nagasawa
  • Miwako Ichikawa
  • Keiichi Suzuki
  • Toshie Negishi
  • Mitsuru Hirata
  • Lily Franky
  • Jun Fubuki

The movie was directed by Rikiya Imaizumi (live-action Hzuki-san Chi no Aneki), who also co-wrote the script with Kaori Sawai.

In 2013, Yasuda debuted the Chihiro-san manga in Elegance Eve by Akita Shoten. Since 2014, nine compilation book volumes of the manga have been released by Akita Shoten. It is the follow-up to the Chihiro manga by Yasuda.

Be sure to check out the official trailer for the live-action film!
