The official website for Takeshi Furusawa’s upcoming live-action adaptation of Yukito Ayatsuji’s horror novel Another has been updated with a new full trailer.

Kento Yamazaki plays a 15-year-old boy named Koichi Sakakibara who moves to the suburban mountain town of Yomiyama to live with his grandparents in the spring of 1998. One day, he suffers a seizure caused by a chronic lung condition and collapses. While in the hospital recovering, he sees a beautiful girl wearing an eye patch (Ai Hashimoto) who makes a strange comment about about the morgue on the second floor and suddenly vanishes.

He meets up with her again when he attends middle school. Her name is Mei Misaki and Koichi can’t help but notice how oddly the other students and teachers seem to act around her. He makes several attempts to get to know her better, but fails repeatedly. However, when their classmates start dying one by one in bizarre accidents, she’s the only person who can help him unravel the mysterious cause.

“Another” is co-distributed by Toho and Kadokawa Pictures and will be released in Japan on August 4, 2012.
