First look at Kenta Suga in live-action "Tsurikichi Sanpei"

by Chris MaGee

We've reported on the live-action adaptation of Takao Yaguchi's fishing manga "Tsurikichi Sanpei" a couple of times (here and here), but now the producers of the films have released this first look at 13-year-old actor Kenta Suga (Always: Sunset on Third Street) in character as Mihira Sanpei, the boy with an almost supernatural talent for fishing.

"Tsurikichi Sanpei" started shooting in Akita Prefecture on July 25th with Yu Kashii, Takashi Tsukamoto and Tsunehiko Watase rounding out the cast. It's set for a 2009 release.
