Serialized by Gangan Pixiv by Square Enix, Cherry Maho is a fantasy romance manga with eight volumes so far written and illustrated by Toyota Yuu. It is about an unpopular man, Kiyoshi, who mysteriously gains the power of being able to read other people's minds just by touch after turning 30 years old while still being a virgin. The power seems to be useless and annoying to him until he accidentally touches his co-worker, Yuichi, and realizes that the man has romantic feelings for him.

From October to December 2020, this masterpiece was already adapted into a 12-episode live-action drama, which has garnered several positive reviews from the viewers that most likely pushed the staff into finally making a movie version this coming spring.

Along with the returning main leads, Kodai Asaka, Takuya Kusakawa, Suzunosuke Tanaka, Yutaro Goto, and Ryo Sato will remain in the cast as Masato Tsuge, Yuta Rokkaku, Kengo Urabe, Minato Wataya, and Nozomi Fujisaki, respectively. Moreover, the movie will be led by director Hiroki Kazama, who also directed the live-action series, so continuity and consistency can be anticipated in this new adaptation.
