AKB48 member to star in upcoming Goth Loli manga-to-screen adaptation

by Chris MaGee

Sometimes I think we should have a separate category for news stories about manga-to-screen adaptaions. There's just so many of them! Word on the the umpteenth latest example of this massive genre comes today from Tokyograph. They are reporting that Yukiwo's Goth Loli-themed manga "Musashino-sen no Shimai" is being turned into a live action film. The film will follow the original manga's story about two sisters - unemployed Ran who spends her days online, and part-time maid cafe waitress Pandora - who both dress in Goth Loli fashions. Starring as Ran will be 25-year-old TV and film actress Natsuki Kato and 19-year-old AKB48 member Chisato Nakata as Pandora. No word yet on a director or any kind of release daye. More on that as it comes out.
