Born on April 5. 1999, we have seen Yuki Mio rising to stardom at a very young age with her notable contributions in acting like DAKARA WATASHI WA OSHIMASHITA, BOKU DAKE GA INAI MACH, DEATH NOTE, and much more. We have seen Yuki Mio in both movies as well as drama, her last movie ONE IN A HUNDRED THOUSAND, also received appreciation from the audience but before NO CALL NO LIFE we have mostly seen her in roles or as the second lead, this movie, in general, could stand as a breakthrough for Yuki Mio since she has been cast as the main lead in this movie.


No Call No Life: Release Date

NO CALL NO LIFE is a Japanese movie that is set to release on 5th March 2021. Also, coming to the main lead actor, we have Inoue Yuki, who was born on 6th June 1996 in Hiroshima. Inoue Yuki is also in need of a breakthrough role for his career right now, and apparently, this movie could be it. Though he has received acclamation about his works before, But he appeared in very few projects to date. It is not his first movie as the main lead, and we want to eagerly see him doing justice to his character Harukawa Masahiro as well.

In the supporting role, we have Inukai Atsuhiro, a model turned actor, and we have seen him in several other dramas and movies in, side roles as well. Inukai Atsuhiro is quite famous and equally important for the movie, and it won’t be wrong to say that it is a movie made by the youngsters targeting the younger audience. Inukai is also getting the main lead roles these days, and we wish to see him more in the future. Also, we have Konishi Sakurako as the second lead, who is equally famous and talented. We have already seen her in plenty of movies and dramas in both lead roles and side roles.

The novel was already a success, and with the twinkling and start-studded cast, the movie would surely attract a lot of attention, especially from the young generation. From my perspective, if you ask me if we as viewers should watch the movie or not? My answer to that would be why should you not watch the movie? Since the movie has everything, one needs to look for, i.e, good plot, good cast under good direction. I genuinely think that this movie is worth giving a shot, and I hope you all like and enjoy the movie.
