    In 2007 Kotomi Aoki’s hit comic I’m In Love With My Sister (????????, Boku wa Imouto ni Koi o Suru) was adapted into the feature film MY SISTER, MY LOVE. An adaptation of I Give My First Love To You (??????????, Boku No Hatsukoi o Kimi Ni Sasagu) followed in 2009. Now, her new manga series The Girl Who Loved Lies -- which has already sold over 2.9 million copies (11 volumes to date) -- is coming to the big screen as THE LIAR AND HIS LOVER. The protagonist, Aki Ogasawara, will be played by one of Japan’s leading drama and film talents, Takeru Sato (RUROUNI KENSHIN, REAL). This will be his first love story. Members of Aki’s popular band, CRUDE PLAY, include up-and-coming stars such as Shohei Miura. The heroine, Riko Koeda will be played by Sakurako Ohara, a fresh, new talent who was selected from an audition pool of over 5,000. The director of the film is Norihiro Koizimi, who also directed A SONG TO THE SUN (???????, Taiyo No Uta, 2006), a heartrending love story in which Koizumi cast the new vocal sensation YUI in the leading role. Koizumi moved audiences with a climactic singing scene featuring YUI. The musical numbers in THE LIAR AND HIS LOVER were produced by Seiji Kameda, ex-bassist of the band Tokyo Jihen. The collaborative efforts of this dynamic cast and crew will bring the ultimate love story to life. Their love song will give you the courage to fall in love... Story At the beginning, I had no feelings for her whatsoever. It was all lies. But even if I was a habitual liar, she said I was an “honest person.” She smiles and pretends that she doesn`t notice. I never stood a chance.

    Aki Ogasawara is the creative talent behind the popular band “CRUDE PLAY.” He quit the band just before their debut, but continues to write their music. But lately, he’s been disenchanted with the music business and bored with himself. On a whim, he starts up a conversation with a total stranger, Riko Koeda, a high school student and a die-hard CRUDE PLAY fan. “Do you believe in love at first sight?” With no idea who he really is, Riko falls in love with Aki and his song. Aki begins dating Riko but keeps his CRUDE PLAY identity a secret... But everything changes when, by sheer coincidence, Soichiro Takagi, producer of CRUDE PLAY and female pop diva Mari, discovers Riko and her schoolmates Yuichi Kimijima and Sota Yamazaki playing music on the street, and decides to promote them as a new indie band “MUSH & CO.” Riko is a rare, gifted singer with a voice unlike any other. Will Aki and Riko’s romance stand a chance in the glamorous world of music?
