Crunchyroll to Exclusively Stream “The Moment You Fall In Love” Anime Film

HARK! Breaking news is just coming of the Aniplex of America panel at Anime Central… the anime movie The Moment You Fall in Love, will begin streaming exclusively through Crunchyroll starting on June 6th.

The first feature in the series I’ve Always Liked You is already available now for viewing on Crunchyroll. Regions for The Moment You Fall in Love will be the same as for the first movie: North America, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, UK, and Ireland.

According to the Aniplex of America press release:

The Moment You Fall in Love is based on “Confess Your Love Committee -Romance Series-” songs by HoneyWorks, including “Ima suki ni naru” (lit. I’m falling in love now). The movie title is shared with an album by HoneyWorks released in July 2015 that has reached #4 on the Oricon Weekly Ranking.

Following I’ve Always Liked You, this story focuses on Hina Setoguchi (voiced by Momo Asakura). Hina finally decides to confess her love to Koyuki Ayase (voiced by Tsubasa Yonaga), who she had been drawn to since middle school and into high school. This series is often praised for its pleasing visuals and character designs. Just as the first film, The Moment You Fall in Love is directed by Tetsuya Yanagisawa (Fate/stay night), with Maki Fujii (I’ve Always Liked You) as the character designer.


Their initial encounter couldn’t have been any more disastrous—
Yet, even before she realizes, Hina finds her heart racing.

Drawn to Koyuki, a former upperclassman at her middle school, Hina is determined to go to the same high school as him, and hits the books with a vengeance. Along with her childhood friend Kotaro, she enrolls at Sakuragaoka High School.

Meanwhile, the unhip Koyuki gets a makeover for the sake of an unrequited love over summer break, and he suddenly finds himself becoming the “major catch” among the female students.

That is when Hina decides to confess her love…
