This year’s 9th issue of Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine is announcing on Friday that Kento Hayashi and Mirei Kiritani are starring in the live-action television and film adaptations of Hikaru Nakamura’s Arakawa under the bridge manga. Hayashi and Kiritani will play Riku and Nino, respectively.
