The A-1 Pictures-animated film will open in Japan on September 18
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 revealed today that the already-released live-action film's four main cast members: Minami Hamabe (Akari), Takumi Kitamura (Rio), Riko Fukumoto (Yuha), and Eiji Akaso (Kazuomi) also made a guest voice appearance in different roles.
In the anime film, Kitamura and Akaso are cast as male students who visit the Cultural Festival. Meanwhile, Hamabe plays Chiyo in the play "Itsuka Sekai no Katasumi de" (Someday in a Corner of the World) performed at the festival, and Fukumoto voices Chiyo's daughter Ayuko.
Even though they made a brief appearance, it was a difficult experience for the two actresses. Hamabe says, "I hadn't spoken into a microphone in a long time, so I was really nervous," then Fukumoto adds, "I was so nervous. It was very difficult to match the timing of the anime visuals and my voice."
The A-1 Pictures-animated film was originally set for May 29, 2020, but has been postponed to September 18 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The live-action film was already released in Japan on August 14, 2020, then ranked sixth with a so-so 200 million yen in its opening weekend.
