The Kadokawa Anime YouTube channel began streaming a 17-second television spot for the for the live-action film adaptation of Mayu Shinjo's Ai Ore Love Me!

DGNA member Karam stars as Akira Shiraishi, the male "princess" of an all-boys school.

Akira wants to join Mizuki's band Blaue Rosen when the band's lead singer moves overseas, but first he has to overcome Mizuki's suspicious misgivings.
"Ikenai 1-2-3" is DGNA's first theme song for a Japanese film. The film opened in Japan on August 25.
