The official website of the anime movie inspired by Vocaloid music circle HoneyWorks revealed that the work will be titled Zutto Mae kara Suki Deshita.: Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai. The movie will open in theaters in Japan on April 23, 2016.

The updated website also revealed the first key visual (pictured), which was created by animator Maki Fujii. A trailer was uploaded to the YouTube channel of Aniplex, but it is region-locked to Japan. The complete production staff and additional cast members were also announced.

Decent cast I guess.

Not sure I feel about this movie yet as the staff feels like a mixed bag.

Nice, I really like the casting but the staff has me on the fence. As a fan of the circle and as someone who constantly plays their songs on osu I can't wait.

Hiroshi Kamiya?
Count me in.
(also a bunch of other seiyuus I love, but Hiroshi Kamiya is all the motivation I need to watch an anime)

At least this one is difficult to mess up ^^ It's just a simple school plot/setting. It'll be cute at least.

Just what I thought. The girl looks a lot like the main girl in Glasslip.

But still I guess this would be much better too. A definite watch.

Ohhh this is surprising. I've actually listened to the songs, although I only like less than half of the songs. But the PV looks nice, liking the visuals.

That staff tho, what the hell is happening there. ._.
Usually avoid shoujos but it's a movie so hey, what the hell.
And HoneyWorks is awesome, I didn't watch the show but I simply loved their single for Ao Haru Ride's OP.

Is this going to be based off this?

Really looking forward to this, I love the songs (plus Kenichi Suzumura yesss). Slightly nervous though since I've heard the Kagepro adaptation wasn't very good but I mean this is a different studio and staff so hoping for a good outcome.

On one hand, it's standard high school romance, so I doubt they can seriously mess this up.

On the other hand, it's standard high school romance, so I doubt it'll be anything "amazing," at least plot-wise.

That being said Honeyworks music is great, and I'm actually looking forwards to seeing how this will turn out. Cast looks pretty solid.
Everything's gonna be daijoubu.

Eh so it's basically mashing up together the three story branches to make a full length movie. Adding in the answer/conclusion we couldn't get from the song pv/manga thingy. Good XD


The songs are so addicting~

Mmmmmmm.... Vocaloid projects being turned into an anime are usually not a good thing but ok, I'll watch it.

I think I've seen screen shots and art/fan art of the girl before from vocaloid stuff.

I really like her character design, so I'll probably watch this.
