Maki Fujii (Blade Dance of the Elementalers, Pupa) is serving as character designer and chief animation director.
The film will center around the HoneyWorks songs "Ima Suki ni Naru" (I'm Falling in Love Now) and "sankaku Jealousy" (Triangle Jealousy). The film shares the same title as the musical group's third and latest album, which it released in July 2015. The first film was based on the "Kokuhaku Yokō Renshū" (Confession Rehearsal), "Hatsukoi no Ehon" (The Picture Book of the First Love), and "Yakimochi no Kotae" (The Answer to Jealousy) songs.
HoneyWorks consists of composer Gom (center in image below), composer shito (center right), and illustrator Yamako (center left). Their support members include guitarist Oji (Kaizoku-Ō, far right), illustrator Mogeratta, illustrator Rokoru (far left), video production member ziro, keyboardist cake, and drummer AtsuyuK! Their songs have spawned videos that have garnered over 100 million views on Niconico, YouTube, and other video-sharing sites, and the five novels based on those songs have sold over 850,000 copies.
The first film, Zutto Mae Kara Suki Deshita: Kokuhaku Jikkō Iinkai (which shares a name with the band's first album), opened in Japanese theaters on April 23.
The group contributed theme songs in the Brothers Conflict and Tokyo Ravens television anime. CHICO with Honeyworks, the group's collaboration with vocalist CHiCO, contributed theme songs for Blue Spring Ride, Magic Kaito 1412, and Gintama.
