As many Anime News Sites have been reporting that the new Takashi Mike Live-Action film was based on the popular manga Waru by Yukari Hashida, it is now reported that actually there was an error and the movie is based on a similarly named 1970’s manga by Hisao Maki.
Therefore a possible disappointment for Yaoi fans as in this version of Waru there are no boy to boy relationships.
Hashida’s Waru was creditted as being "an edgy action-packed tale of outlaw swordsman Youji Himuro".
