The teaser trailer for the live-action film of Kanae Hazuki’s Suki-tte Ii na yo (Say, “I love you”) manga was released earlier today on the film’s website. The teaser reveals that the film will open on July 12. In case you forgot (or didn’t know), Suki-tte Ii na yo was one of my “Best Anime of 2012,” so I’m definitely looking forward to the film.
The plot summary of Say, “I love you” is as follows:
Friends suck, and trusting someone is just setting yourself up. That’s the lesson Mei Tachibana learned after her heart was ripped out and only a shell was left where a girl used to be. But unlike so many, she found an easy solution: she’ll never make another friend. Ever.
Okay, maybe that’s not as easy as it sounds, but it’s worked for Mei – or at least, it did until handsome, charming and annoyingly popular Yamato Kurosawa came along. For some freakish reason, he seems to like Mei. He even gave her his phone number! As if she would ever call him. Except she did. But only because she needed help. Still, he came. He actually came. And now things are getting way too complicated.
Mei’s no princess in a tower. She’s not waiting for a knight in shining armor to rescue her. So why did he have to kiss her and confuse everything? And why are those three little words so hard to say?
Haruna Kawaguchi (Ouran High School Host Club’s Haruhi) stars as Mei Tachibana, and Sōta Fukushi (Gentaro Kisaragi/Kamen Rider Fourze in Kamen Rider Fourze) co-stars as Yamato Kurosawa. Asako Hyūga is directing and writing the film. The movie started filming in early January, with plans to wrap up in mid-February.
