The romantic comedy WOLF GIRL & BLACK PRINCE (オオカミ少女と黒王子, Okami Shojo to Kuro Oji) opened today at the Shinjuku Piccadilly and other theaters across Japan. Directed by Ryuichi Hiroki (KABUKICHO LOVE HOTEL), the movie is based on Ayuko Hatta’s manga of the same name, which has sold more than 450 million copies since its 2011 debut.
WOLF GIRL & BLACK PRINCE stars Fumi Nikaido (WHY DON’T YOU PLAY IN HELL?, HIBI ROCK: PUKE AFRO AND THE POP STAR) as “wolf girl” Erika Shinohara and Kento Yamazaki (LOVE FOR BEGINNERS, L♡DK – LIVING TOGETHER) as “black prince” Kyouya Sata. The supporting cast features Nobuyuki Suzuki (THE KIRISHIMA THING, STRAYER’S CHRONICLE), Mugi Kadowaki (GASSOH), Ryusei Yokohama (MARUYAMA THE MIDDLE SCHOOLER), Elaiza Ikeda (THE VIRGIN PSYCHICS), Tina Tamashiro (SADAKO VS KAYAKO), Ryo Yoshizawa (KAMEN RIDER FOURZE THE MOVIE, KAMEN RIDER X KAMEN RIDER WIZARD & FOURZE: MOVIE WARS ULTIMATUM) and Nanao (THE SNOW WHITE MURDER CASE, ONE PIECE FILM GOLD).
Newly enrolled in high school and completely single, 16 year old Erika Shinohara brags about her romantic experiences. Before long, her friends express doubts that she even has a boyfriend. To cover her lies, Erika takes a picture of a random, good-looking boy she sees in the city. But, after she presents the photo to her friends as “proof”, she discovers the boy is actually Kyouya Sata, a popular student attending the same high school.
Erika approaches Kyouya and explains her dilemma. He agrees to pretend to be her boyfriend, but under one condition… she must be absolutely obedient to him! The “prince” of the school is actually a “black prince” with a sadistic streak who treats Erika like a dog.
Can real love grow from a twisted relationship born from a lie?
