Otona Najimi Live-action Film Drops Full Trailer featuring Theme Song by Kis-My-Ft2



The official website for the forthcoming live-action film adaptation of Aya Nakahara's (Love Com, aka Lovely Complex) romantic comedy manga Otona Najimi has posted a 60-second full trailer.


The clip features the theme song "Sweet Melody" sung by Johnny & Associates' seven-member boy idol group Kis-My-Ft2 for the first time. The members say, "We are very honored to participate in this film as the theme song performers. A long term relationship that has seen both good times and bad times, and has shown each other both its strengths and weaknesses. The key to this song is the light, mid-tempo music that expresses the feelings of cherishing such an irreplaceable relationship. Although our contribution might not be worth much, we hope it can be of some help to this film. Please enjoy the film with 'Sweet Melody'!"
