Anata o Zutto Aishiteru is the second film inspired by Tatsuya Miyanishi's Tyrannosaurus series of children books, after 2010's You Are Umasou. The first book and film follow a Tyrannosaurus who comes across an Ankylosaurus baby all by himself and says, "Gaō! Omae Umasou Dana" ("Rawr! You look delicious.") However, the Tyrannosaurus ends up adopting the baby as his own. The first film earned the top first-day audience satisfaction rating from the Pia service, as well as a high 4.22 rating from Yahoo! Movies Japan reviews. The books also inspired a Miyanishi Tatsuya Gekijō: Omae Umasou da na, series of television anime shorts in 2010.
Miyanishi directly participated in the Anata o Zutto Aishiteru anime film's production, and she and Hisao Masuda co-wrote the screenplay based on her Aishite Kurete Arigatō (Thank You for Loving Me) and Deaete Hontō ni Yokatta (It Was Truly Good to Meet You) books. Kazumi Nonaka (Hana Kappa, Happy Happy Clover, Mameushi-kun) acted as chief director of the new film with Korean director Choe Gong-sook and unit director Hideki Takayama (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha the Movie 2nd A's, Space Battleship Yamato Resurrection).
