Teaser trailer for Takashi Miike’s Ai to Makoto

Ai to Makoto (For Love's Sake)

Ai to Makoto (For Love's Sake)Somebody get Takashi Miike a kitten, or perhaps a stamp collecting kit. He seems to be unable to stop making films. Mind you, when the quality is as good as the recent 13 Assassins, why try and end it?

Asian Media Wiki (and Twitch Film) has posted a teaser trailer for his adaptation of the 1970s manga serial Ai to Makoto (愛と誠) by Ikki Kajiwara. The trailer is a very brief and incredibly stylised, some might even say eye-catching.

The manga series was previously adapted as a live-action television series in 1974 and into three live-action films in 1974, 1975 and 1976. It will star Satoshi Tsumabuki (Villain) and Emi Takei (The Cherry Orchard).

Miike’s next film to be released is the adaptation of the Nintendo DS game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. He will eventually find a balance between the crazy the a sublime, although we aren’t entirely sure that is what the world needs.
