Live-action film is also slated for the summer of 2020
The official website for the forthcoming anime feature film adaptation of Io Sakisaka (Ao Haru Ride)'s romance shoujo manga Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare / Love Me, Love Me Not, has posted a 30-second teaser trailer to announce its release day May 29, 2020, along with its main voice cast and staff.
Toshimasa Kuroyanagi (Say I Love You) is attached to direct on a screenplay by Erika Yoshida (Tiger & Bunny) at A-1 Pictures (Oreimo, Sword Art Online). Yuji Nomi (Whisper of the Heart) provides the soundtrack music.
Main voice cast:
- Yuna Ichihara: Marika Suzuki (her anime debut role)

The manga was serialized in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret from June 2015 to May 2019 and released 12 tankobon volumes. Under the title Love Me, Love Me Not, its English edition is scheduled to be published by VIZ Media from March 2020. The English edition publisher introduces its first volume's story as: "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!"
In addition to the anime film, the manga's live-action film adaptation directed by Takahiro Miki, who previously worked on the live-action film adaptation of Sakisaka's Ao Haru Ride in 2014, is also set to be released in August of 2020.
