What You Need to Know:
- Back in March, it was announced that a live-action movie adaptation was in the works for novel-turned-anime, HaruChika. Now, the official site is open and has revealed the plot - which is something quite different from the original.
- Haruta and Chika are still reunited childhood friends who join the wind instrument club. However, they do not share the same romantic interest in their male conductor/teacher, nor do they solve any mysteries - instead, they fall in love with each other.
- The movie is set to premiere on 4 March 2017 and a new PV has been released, which you can watch below.
Reactions Around the Web
Well it won't sell if it's not a love story so
No, a gay puzzle-solving movie would totally sell
So they've taken all the mystery out of it, too?
So it's basically a complete original now
If it's not HomoChika there's no point in watching it
I wish I could say I wasn't expecting this buuuuut... This is how the movie industry works.
Ouch. This looks like it really is going to be something completely different...
