Introduction

The original works features the story of the lonesome and epic life of a woman known as "L," who continues to search for love, blending with music by Acid Black Cherry in the epic concept album "L." Selected as a winning entry for the [CD Shop Awards 2016], the album has sold 200,000 copies recording extraordinary sales, gaining major attention. Not only was the album popular, but also last fall, the story segment of the album was adapted into a popular novel, which was an unprecedented feat in the music scene. The lonely and beautiful world of "L" has been fully adapted into a film using state-of-the-art video technology!
The director is Ten Shimoyama, who has realistically envisioned the unique world of the concept album "L," which was said to be difficult to visualize, by utilizing visual FX and fantasy-like footage, along with raw performance.

Playing the role of Oves, L's childhood friend who continues to love L throughout his life beginning from his youth, is Yuki Furukawa. What's more, the spectacular cast members Maryjun Takahashi, Yuta Hiraoka, Yasuyuki Maekawa, Ryo Narita, Mihiro, Mikako, Seika Furuhata, Yoji Tanaka, and Hitomi Takahashi play the people that appear throughout L's life.
