Solanin manga to get movie treatment

10 04 2009

jg_solanin2Here’s a nice change of pace — a movie based on a manga series that is not shounen or bishoujo. Solanin, is a manga for a demographic called seinen, meant for 18-30 year olds.

In this story, Inoue and Taneda have been together since college, and now live in the “real world,” with Inoue pulling most of the financial weight while Taneda does whatever freelance illustration work he can find. Their already strained relationship becomes even moreso when Inoue loses her job, though they remain supportive of each other. Will they be able to realize their dreams, or just get by?

The manga demonstrates the ambiguity of real modern life, and it’s easy to see why this would appeal to a more mature audience. No trailer yet, unfortunately!
