Toei began streaming three character videos on Saturday for LDK Hitotsu Yane no Shita, "Suki" ga Futatsu (Two Loves Under One Roof), the new live-action film adaptation of Ayu Watanabe's LDK shōjo manga.

Aoi Version

Shūsei Version

Reon Version

Mone Kamishiraishi plays heroine Aoi Nishimori in the film, while Yōsuke Sugino plays Shūsei Kugayama. New to the story is Reon Kugayama, Shūsei's cousin, played by Ryūsei Yokohama. Keita Machida will also star in the film as the character Sōju Kugayama, Shūsei's older brother.

The film opens in Japan on March 21. Mone Kamishiraishi and Takahito Uchisawa (androp) perform the film's theme song "Happy End."

Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in North America, and it describes the series:

Aoi Nishimori is a high school girl who lives alone in her own apartment, but to her surprise, she discovers that the prince of her school, Shusei Kugayama, has moved in next door! To add to this, a series of crazy happenings result in the two living together under a single roof! Shusei is known to be a heartless guy and Aoi particularly hates him after he coldly rejected her best friend, so a life of cohabitation seems like a recipe for disaster. And yet, Aoi somehow can't stop her heart from pounding when she's with Shusei...

Watanabe launched the manga in Bessatsu Friend in 2009, and ended it in August 2017. Kodansha published the manga's 24th and final volume in October 2017.

The manga previously inspired a live-action film starring Ayame Gōriki (Black Butler, Gatchaman, Mirai Nikki- Another: World) as Aoi and Kento Yamazaki (Kyō, Koi wo Hajimemasu) as love-interest Shūsei in April 2014.
