First Photo of Maika Yamamoto as Kaede Kayano in “Assassination Classroom” Live-Action Film

Eiichiro Hasumi-directed film opens in Japan in March 2015

As reported, the official Twitter account for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Yusei Matsui’s Ansatsu Kyoushitsu/Assassination Classroom manga, has been posting the photos from the set. The latest one posted today on September 8 introduces 16-year-old actress Maika Yamamoto as Kaede Kayano with her message for the first time. Thankfully, the color of her hair is not light green as it is in the manga (it would be ridiculous in a live-action film). How do you like her? The official Twitter for the film will keep posting the photos of the students in class 3-E.

“Since the serialization of the manga still continues, I discussed with the manga publishing team how far I could show (in the first film). I’ve also talked with the film staff that I really wanted to the second. It’s all depend on how successful it can be. If it’s successful enough, I’m ready to do the sequel anytime. To tell the truth, We’ve already filmed a trailer for the sequel. I want to attach it to the first if it’s doing well in theaters.”
