Shueisha announced on Tuesday that Io Sakisaka's Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare manga is inspiring both an anime film and a live-action film adaptation. A-1 Pictures (The [email protected], Kaguya-sama: Love is War, Sword Art Online) is producing the anime film for a May 2020 opening. Takahiro Miki, who also directed the live-action film adaptation of Sakisaka's Blue Spring Ride manga, is directing the live-action Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare film, which is slated for an August 2020 opening.
The live-action film's cast includes (from left to right in image above):
The story focuses on two girls whose stances on love are polar opposites. Yuna wants a love that's like a dream. Akari thinks she can become better at love and is very realistic in her approach. The two heroines' stories unfold beside two male main characters. Kazuomi doesn't understand love. He asks, "What's that, something tasty?" On the other hand, Rio won't reject anyone who comes his way, as long as that person is cute.
Sakisaka launched the manga in June 2015. Shueisha published the 11th volume on February 25 and will publish the 12th and final volume in June. The series has topped 4.5 million copies, including those offered through digital services.
Sakisaka serialized her "traditional school romance" Strobe Edge in Bessatsu Margaret from 2007 to 2009. Viz Media published the 10-volume series in English. The manga inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan in March 2015.
Sakisaka's 13-volume Blue Spring Ride manga inspired a television anime series, an original anime DVD, and a live-action film in 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the television anime as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released it on home video. Viz Media is releasing the manga in English.
