Crunchyroll News describes the movie’s story as such:

“The story centers on five male high school students, Tokio Furuta, Shigekazu Ashida, Kotaro Tojima, Aki Sahashi, and Shun Gotouda. They are all good-looking boys, but have problems in their personalities. One day, they are gathered by Sakiko Horinomiya, their school’s famous girl from a rich family. She wants them to participate in the “Motemen Koushien” tournament to repay the debts that have been owed from various circumstances with the prize money. As growing up to become the champion, they also start realizing the changes in their own minds and surroundings, as well as their love feelings toward Sakiko.

The film is written by Mari Okada, best known as the writer of Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day and most recently, the currently-airing anime series O Maidens in Your Savage Season. She is co-writing the script with Akiko Waba (Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan). The film is directed by Shun Kudo (episode director of Monster Strike the Animation), with creative unit HoneyWorks’ Yamako providing the character designs. Signal-MD is producing the film.

The anime project was launched last April by NTV and AKB48 producer Yasushi Akimoto, who is also producing the film.
