Thanks to the official website for Ken'ichi Endô (see below) for bringing the following to my attention: Takashi Miike's 46-okunen no koi is scheduled to be released theatrically in Japan in the spring of next year.

The screenplay for 46-okunen no koi was written by Masa Nakamura, based on the novel Shônen A erejî by "Ato Masaki" - a joint pen-name of Ikki Kajiwara (1936-1987) and his younger brother Hisao Maki. The movie stars Ryûhei Matsuda, Masanobu Andô, Renji Ishibashi, Ken'ichi Endô, Shunsuke Kubozuka (Kuboduka Shunsuke), Kiyohiko Shibukawa (a.k.a. Kee), and Ryô Ishibashi.

Those who are interested in 46-okunen no koi may also wish to read the most recent ScreenAnarchy article on Takeshi Miyasaka's Ryû ga gotoku - jissha-ban, which Miike is credited as having been the integration director (sôgô kantoku) for.

Friggin Sweet. Man, Miike just makes too many films. I made an effort to review a bunch of his stuff on my site at first, but these days there are just too many films being released, whether on US DVD or bootlegs, to really keep up. The last one I saw was Zebraman, which was really quite funny.

So theatrical release in Spring next year? I guess we can expect a dvd release sometime in Summer to late fall, eh?
