Takahiro Miki is directing the live-action film and A-1 Pictures is working on the anime film. The cast for the live-action film includes Eiji Akaso as Kazuomi, Minami Hamabe as Akari, Riko Fukumoto as Yuna, and Takumi Kitamura as Rio.
Plot Concept: Two girls whose stances on love are polar opposites; Yuna wants a love that’s like a dream. Akari thinks she can become better at love and is very realistic in her approach. The two heroines’ stories unfold beside two male main characters. Kazuomi doesn’t understand love. He asks, “What’s that, something tasty?” On the other hand, Rio won’t reject anyone who comes his way, as long as that person is cute.
