“The Moment You Fall in Love” To Stream as Crunchyroll Exclusive on 6/6/2017

The moment you fall in love is a special time, when the world just stops and everything seems “right.” Well, that’s what the brochure tells me, at least.

Earlier today, Aniplex of America announced that they will stream The Moment You Fall in Love (Suki ni Naru Sono Shunkan o: Kokuhaku Jikkō Iinkai) on Crunchyroll. The film will stream exclusively on the platform starting June 6.

Aniplex describes The Moment You Fall in Love as:

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…
