In addition, sales for the five novels based on their songs have surpassed over 850,000 copies.

Following I’ve Always Liked You, this story focuses on Hina Setoguchi (voiced by Momo Asakura). Hina finally decides to confess her love to Koyuki Ayase (voiced by Tsubasa Yonaga), who she had been drawn to since middle school and into high school.

Just as the first film, The Moment You Fall in Love is directed by Tetsuya Yanagisawa (Fate/stay night), with Maki Fujii (I’ve Always Liked You) as the character designer.
