New Japanese live-action thriller Land Of Tanabata to premiere July 4 exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar

AFTER years of pent-up demand from fans of the popular manga, a live-action adaptation of Land of Tanabata is set to debut July 4 exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.

The series will follow Yoji Minamimaru, an absent-minded university student who discovers he has the seemingly useless power of being able to make a hole in anything.

Affectionately called Nanmaru by his friends, Minamimaru will suddenly find himself at the center of a potentially world-ending crisis with nothing but his useless power to help.

Land of Tanabata is directed by Yusuke Taki (Gun Girl Lady, In Love and Deep Water).

Speaking about the upcoming series, Hitoshi Iwaaki, the author of the original manga said:

“This adaptation feels very special to me. I’m really looking forward to seeing how they adapt all the artwork into amazing live-action visuals for audiences to enjoy!”

Starring Kanata Hosoda (To Be Killed By a High School Girl, The Aobas’ Dining Table) as Yoji Minamimaru aka Nanmaru, a university student with the useless ability to create a hole in anything, Ryoko Fujino (Solomon’s Perjury) as Sachiko Higashimaru and Shuhei Uesugi (You Made My Dawn) as Takashi Higashimaru.

Kiryu Mai (Hell Dogs) as Sayuri Emi, Hiroshi Mikami (Mori, The Artist’s Habitat) as Masami Marukami and Takayuki Yamada (Six Singing Women) as Yoriyuki Marukami.

Land of Tanabata is set to join an ever-growing collection of exciting Japanese content now available on Disney+ Hotstar including Gannibal, about a newly assigned police officer who discovers a horrifying truth about his sleepy rural village and Tokyo Revengers, as well as an endless array of local APAC titles and beloved international movies and shows.

Stream Land of Tanabata starting July 4 exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.
