It was announced that popular shoujo manga by Hatta Ayuko, “Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji” (Wolf Girl & Black Prince) will be getting a live action adaptation, scheduled for May of next year. A teaser has been released to introduce the main cast and director.

The story of Wolf Girl & Black Prince centers around Shinohara Erika, a vain 16-year-old girl who tells her friends about her romantic exploits, but she actually has no boyfriend. She claims that a handsome boy in a candid photo is her boyfriend, but it turns out that boy is a schoolmate named Sata Kyoya. She has no choice but to make him her fake boyfriend. Unfortunately, Sata may look like a sweet person, but he is actually an ultra-black-hearted sadist. Sata takes advantage of Erika’s weakness and treats her like his dog.
