‘Love’ shifting between three people and ‘Lies’ to protect the one you love.
Love and Lies (Koi to Uso), the popular manga that started serialization on the manga app Manga Box, became such a great hit that even after the launch of the first volume, they announced the anime version and after that this live action movie. The story of the movie will be connected to the original work.
The teaser visual for the movie have been revealed. On the teaser it reads, ‘A world that doesn’t allow romance, where the government assigns you your perfect partner. One day, we received our notification of “love.”’ Standing below the text are Aoi Morikawa, Takumi Kitamura and Kanta Sato.
With the bright blue sky and futuristic buildings in the background, it is possible to imagine the same thing happening in our future. The visuals sure raise the excitement for the movie and the love triangle between the 3 characters. We can look forward to see an original, refreshing love story, set in a world that doesn’t allow people to freely fall in love.
