Love Me, Love Me Not Live-Action Film Releases Full Trailer Featuring Theme Song by Official HIGE DANdism
A-1 Pictures-animated feature film has been also in the works
Toho MOVIE's official YouTube channel has posted a 90-second full trailer for the forthcoming live-action feature film adaptation of Io Sakisaka (Ao Haru Ride)'s romance shoujo manga Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare / Love Me, Love Me Not.
The clip features the film's theme song "115 Man Kilo no Film" (The film of 1.15 million kilometers) performed by the four-member piano rock band Official HIGE DANdism. The song was originally included in the band's 2018 album "Escaparade."
The live-action film is directed by Takahiro Miki, who previously worked on the adaptation of Sakisaka's Ao Haru Ride in 2014. It is set to be released in Japan on August 14, 2020.
Message from Official HIGE DANdism:
This song is filled with the desire to not forget the time to live with the people we care about as much as possible while sharing any minor anxiety and happiness together. It's one of the songs that we've cherished with all our fans. We were surprised at first when we heard that this song fit with the theme of the film. But we thought it would be a happy thing for the band if this song could accompany with the days of the protagonists and the audience. So we decided to be involved in this film with our song '115 Man Kilo no Film.' We are looking forward to the release!
