Live-action film's cast, August 14 release date revealed

The official website for the anime film of Io Sakisaka's Love Me, Love Me Not (Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare) manga began streaming a special video on Monday that previews both the anime film and the live-action film adaptation of the manga.

The anime film will open on May 29, and the live-action film will open on August 14. The live-action film stars Minami Hamabe as Akari Yamamoto, Takumi Kitamura as Rio Yamamoto, Riko Fukumoto as Yuna Ichihara, and Eiji Akaso as Kazuomi Inui. Takahiro Miki is directing the film, and Miki and Yōko Yonaiyama are writing the script.

The anime stars:

Toshimasa Kuroyanagi (The Great Passage, Say, "I Love You"., Shōnen Hollywood - Holly Stage for 49) is directing the film at A-1 Pictures. Erika Yoshida (Trickster, Namu Amida Butsu! -Rendai Utena-) is penning the script. Yuu Yamashita (Bunny Drop) is designing the characters. Yuuji Nomi (Whisper of the Heart, Say, "I Love You".) is composing the music.

Viz Media licensed the manga, and will publish the first volume on Tuesday. The company describes the manga:

Fast friends Yuna and Akari are complete opposites—Yuna is an idealist, while Akari is a realist. When lady-killer Rio and the oblivious Kazuomi join their ranks, love and friendship become quite complicated!

Sakisaka (Strobe Edge, Blue Spring Ride) launched the manga in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret in June 2015, and ended it last May. Shueisha published the manga's 12th and final compiled book volume on June 25.
