Yashiro: Let go of me!
Text: A timid, cross-dressing guy...
Momose: You wear skirts, right? Wear this.
Momose: Can I kiss you?
Text: ...and a forceful high-school guy.
Teacher: Stop thinking of lewd things.
Momose: We... aren't going out? You know what happens when we go out right?
Text: This is their awkward and youthful love story.
Momose: Are you mocking me? Don't make me laugh.

Woman: Ew, gross.
Momose: He's a hundred times cuter than you! Let's go.
Yashiro: Even your sister didn't like it. It's just you.
Momose: Because you like me! Come on, for my sake.
Momose: It seems if Yashiro wears woman's clothes, he can't resist me.
Momose: Hey, Yashiro!
Mario Kuroba (Eiji Kikumaru in The Prince of Tennis musical's 2nd season and a grand prize finalist in Junon magazine's 23rd Super Boy Contest) plays Momose. Ryūgi Yokota (the special judge's award winner in the 25th Junon Super Boy Contest) plays Yashiro. Director Noriko Yuasa is making her commercial film debut with this project, and Hiroko Kanasugi (Takumi-kun, My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy, Diabolik Lovers More, Blood) wrote the screenplay.
The film will open at Tokyo's Shibuya Humax Cinema on July 25. That same day, the next issue of Shodensha's on Blue magazine (vol. 18) will publish a feature on Hideyoshico.
The manga ran in the same magazine, and it was #5 in the "Kono BL ga Yabai!" manga ranking for 2014. It already inspired a 2013 drama CD starring Wataru Hatano and Yuuki Ono as Momose and Yashiro, respectively. Digital Manga Publishing released Hideyoshico's Apple and Honey and Apple and Honey: His Rose Colored Life manga in North America.
