HoneyWorks-produced Virtual Idol Unit LIP×LIP Gets Anime Feature Film

Fumie Muroi (Chiruran Nibun no Ichi) serves as director at CLAP



LIP x LIP is a two-member virtual idol unit produced by Honey Works, consisting of Yujiro Someya (CV: Kouki Uchiyama) and Aizo Shibasaki (Nobunaga Shimazaki). As the tenth anniversary project for the creator unit, Kono Sekai no Tanoshimikata (how to Enjoy This World) -Secret Story Film-, a feature film to tell the story how the two met and decided to form the unit has gotten the green light.


The unit made their screen debut with "Romeo," an insert song for HoneyWorks' 2016 anime film Zutto Mae Kara Suki Deshita. ~Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai~, then made their major debut with their double A-side first single "Non Fantasy/Hitsuyou Fukaketsu" in December 2017. Their first album "Docchi no Kiss ka, Erabeyo." ranked second in Oricon's weekly album chart. Their videos have been viewed more than 70 million times on the web.


Fumie Muroi (Chiruran Nibun no Ichi) serves as the director of the feature film on a screenplay by Yoshimi Narita (PreCure series) at CLAP (Eiga Daisuki Pompo-san).





Yujiro has worked hard at his lessons, dreaming of performing on the Kabuki stage, but he is not chosen as the successor and his path for the future is cut short. Meanwhile, Aizo, who loves to sing, has spent his days getting irritated by the unrestrained behavior of his mother and brother, who live together with him.


Then one day, the two take a chance to apply for an idol audition. When they meet at the audition site, they get into an argument over a trivial thing. It was the worst kind of encounter, but both of them pass the audition!


However, President Tamura told them the condition for their debut. They will have to form a unit to make their debut. This is the story of how the two, who are total opposites, become super-popular idols.
