Suki ni Naru Sono Shunkan o Film’s 3rd Trailer Previews Natsuki Hanae’s Insert Song
Aniplex began streaming the third full trailer for Suki ni Naru Sono Shunkan o: Kokuhaku Jikkō Iinkai (I wait for the moment you love me. Confession Executive Committee), the second anime film inspired by the HoneyWorks musical group’s Kokuhaku Jikkō Iinkai ~Renai Series~ (Confession Executive Committee ~Love Series~) Vocaloid songs, on Thursday. The video will be the final trailer before the film opens in theaters on Saturday. (Note: The linked video is region-locked to Japan.)
The new trailer previews the movie’s insert song “Ima Suki ni Naru. -triangle story-” by Natsuki Hanae, the voice of Kotaro Enomoto in the film.
The film was originally slated to open this summer, but was pushed back to December 17.
The film will center around the HoneyWorks songs “Ima Suki ni Naru” (I’m Falling in Love Now) and “Sankaku Jealousy” (Triangle Jealousy). The film shares the same title as the musical group’s third and latest album, which it released in July 2015. The first film was based on the “Kokuhaku Yokō Renshū” (Confession Rehearsal), “Hatsukoi no Ehon” (The Picture Book of the First Love), and “Yakimochi no Kotae” (The Answer to Jealousy) songs.
Idol group Nogizaka46 members Sayuri Matsumura, Manatsu Akimoto, Kotoko Sasaki, and Miria Watanabe are voicing characters in the film. Matsumura (leftmost in picture below) voices the character Kako, a friend of the heroine in the film, while Akimoto, Sasaki, and Watanabe (second, third, fourth from left, respectively) voice female extras.
In addition, HoneyWorks is collaborating with Nogizaka46 for the anime’s ending theme song titled “Daikirai na Hazu datta,” which is credited as a “HoneyWorks meets Sayuringo Gundan (Sayuri Matsumura) + Manatsu-san Respect Gundan (Manatsu Akimoto)” song. Sayuri and Akimoto are performing the song, which HoneyWorks wrote and composed. The song received a digital release on December 7.
