The official website dedicated to Io Sakisaka’s anime film adaptation of the Love Me, Love Me Not (Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare) manga announced last Tuesday that BUMP OF CHICKEN will be performing the film’s theme song “Gravity”. Check out the trailer above if you haven’t already!
Here’s a tweet from the official twitter account:
We’ve already covered some of this in a post prior, you can check it out here!
The film will open in Japan on September 18th. The film was previously intended to release on May 29th later this year, but the film’s opening has been delayed due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
A separate live-action film adaptation will open on August 14th.
Toshimasa Kuroyanagi is directing the film at A-1 Pictures. Erika Yoshida (from Trickster, Namu Amida Butsu! -Rendai Utena-) will be penning the script. Yuu Yamashita (Bunny Drop) is designing the characters. Yuuji Nomi (Whisper of the Heart, Say, “I Love You”.) is composing the music.
The live-action film version stars Minami Hamabe as Akari Yamamoto, Takumi Kitamura as Rio Yamamoto, Riko Fukumoto as Yuna Ichihara, and Eiji Akaso as Kazuomi Inui. Takahiro Miki is directing the film, and Miki and Yōko Yonaiyama are writing the script.
Viz Media originally published the first manga volume on March 3rd. The company describes the manga:
Fast friends Yuna and Akari are complete opposites—Yuna is an idealist, while Akari is a realist. When lady-killer Rio and the oblivious Kazuomi join their ranks, love and friendship become quite complicated!– Viz Media
Sakisaka (Strobe Edge, Blue Spring Ride) launched the manga in Shueisha’s Bessatsu Margaret in June 2015, and ended it in May of 2019. Shueisha published the manga’s 12th and final compiled book volume in June 2019.
