Ryōsuke Yamamoto as Natsuki Miyata

Ryōsuke Yamamoto, who portrayed Makoto Fukami/Kamen Rider Specter in Kamen Rider Ghost, has been cast in a live action adaptation of the Chotto Mate Yakyūbu – Kenritsu Shingen Kōkō Yakyūbu no Nichijō manga.


Recently, more information has been revealed for the live action adaptation of Chotto Mate Yakyūbu – Kenritsu Shingen Kōkō Yakyūbu no Nichijō (Wait a Second Baseball Club: Shingen Prefectural High School Baseball Club’s Everyday Life), a baseball-themed manga written by Takana Yukue. This new information was revealed in the form of casting announcements.

Specifically, Ryōsuke Yamamoto, Yūta Koseki, and Kenta Suga have been cast as the roles of Natsuki Miyata, Kōhei Akimoto, and Hiroki Ōbori respectively. Ryōsuke Yamamoto is best known for his role as the secondary rider Makoto Fukami/Kamen Rider Specter from Kamen Rider Ghost, which was the twenty-sixth entry in the long-running Kamen Rider franchise.

Ryōsuke Yamamoto commented on his role in the film,

“The character I portray, Miyata, is a big goofball who really does things at his own pace, and on the place where the sun shines he would go through the process of photosynthesis and many other strange things; he’s just a man who you can’t seem to grasp. Based on the title, you’d think this series would be just about baseball but there aren’t any serious baseball scenes. I worked really hard, enjoying the filming while trying not to die from laughter of the daily life of the three fellow baseball players. If you watch the three characters who are different in their own ways and cheer up, then you’ll understand how great it is to have a friend.”

Tadaaki Hōrai, who has directed live action Kodoku no Gourmet seasons 1-3, will direct the film.
