The official site for HoneyWorks announced today that Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai: Renai Series (Confession Executive Committee ~Love Series~) will be getting an animated movie to premiere in Spring 2016.

Akari Hayasaka: Kana Asumi (Haiyore! Nyaruko-san)
Haruki Serizawa: Kenichi Suzumura (Kara no Kyoukai)
Mio Aida: Aki Toyosaki (K-On!)
Natsuki Enomoto: Haruka Tomatsu (Sword Art Online)
Souta Mochizuki: Yuuki Kaji (Shingeki no Kyojin)
Yuu Setoguchi: Hiroshi Kamiya (Durarara!!)

Kokuhaku Jokkou Iinkai: Renai Series is a series that HoneyWorks created initially for Vocaloid songs. Later, many seiyuus such as Yuuki Kaji, Kenichi Suzumura, Tsubasa Yonaga, Hiroshi Kamiya, Haruka Tomatsu, etc. voiced the characters, which HoneyWorks used to create the songs and first cover album, titled Zutto Mae kara Suki deshita., which was released on January 29, 2014. A second album, titled Boku ja Dame Desuka?, was later released on November 26, 2014, featuring more characters, and a third album, titled Suki ni Naru Sono Shunkan wo., was released on July 15, 2015. All of the albums also included drama tracks and an animation DVD, along with the cover songs.

I think you should change the part about vocaloids. HoneyWorks is a band of its own that started using vocaloids later on. Their songs are all sung by utaites(net singers) like Sana, Gero etc. As for those who are worried about being another shitty vocaloid song series. I can assure you its not since it's not a vocaoid song series. Plus, we already have drama CDs and small chats in every album long before they decided to make a movie. So the cast knows what they are doing and the creators (Gom, Shito etc) are also writing the script

Literally just based on the political casting alone you can tell it's an Aniplex and probably A-1 thing. It's funny and predictable how aggressively they are jumping on the whole music anime thing post Love Live. Like even moreso than Bandai. Unsurprisingly too it's some already mega popular thing with otaku with tons of hits on youtube and a certain threshold of light novels sold. Probably a do over on Mekaku City Actors by the sounds of it. Loving the clearly designed and cast as fujoshi bait male characters too, like it probably took no time at all to decide Hiroshi was going to be in this lol.

edit: Just checked the site even though I really didn't have to and yup on at least the first one. Same old same old and entirely predictable design by committee looking stuff. Only surprise is no Amamiya and that's it's a movie and not a TV series.

Whoops there's Sora Amamiya after all so now the textbook design by committee is complete. Keep it samey and rote industry.

Don't really know anything about the series, and nothing stands out as too appealing to me. But, that Enomoto character is gorgeous and she's voiced by Haruka Tomatsu so now my attention has been caught a bit.

As a HUGE fan of HoneyWorks and their PVs, i'm really excited (and nervous, because previous series that involved vocaloid series were...yea).Now question is, how far will this movie cover things...because i'm pretty sure it won't go as far as Sayonara Ryou-Kataomoi for example.Maybe just Hatsukoi no Ehon, Kokuhaku Yokou Renshuu and Solution to Jealousy? either way, can't wait -crosses fingers-

So this is getting an anime adaption after all! I wonder how it'll be adapted, though... I can imagine it may work better as a film as they announced, but since the length is shorter than that of a TV anime (one season), it's always a little disappointing when it turns out it's the former and not the latter type of adaption.

Oh, I love Honeyworks so much, I've always wished for an anime, but a movie will be great too!
I can't wait <3

Sadly, yeah.

Anyway, I've listened to quite a few song from the series before, and I especially liked that timid kid's song, but like everyone else said, I'm not particularly looking forward to this with how recent adaptations have been.
