The official Kimi wa Kanata (You Are Beyond) website dedicated to the movie recently streamed a half-minute teaser narrated by Honoka Matsumoto. Check it out above!
The film will star Honoka Matsumoto (you might’ve heard of her in Ride Your Wave’s Yōko Hinageshi) as Mio, and Toshiki Seto (Kamen Rider Ex-Aid’s Kamen Rider Brave) as Shin. Note: character name romanizations are not official, and are prone to changes.
This adolescent fantasy film is set in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro district, and centers on two childhood friends named Mio and Shin. Mio has feelings for Shin, and always thinks about him, but has never been able to tell him how she feels. One day, they get into an argument over something trivial. After awhile, Mio decides to make up with him. As she heads to Shin while being drenched by the rain, she gets into a traffic accident. When Mio regains consciousness, she finds herself in a new and unfamiliar world.
Yoshinobu Sena will be directing the film and penning the script, and he’s also credited for the original concept. His most notable works feature in Neko mo, Onda-ke’s as well as the creator of the Vampire Holmes’ concept (he’s also the lead voice actor for him!). This is Sena’s directorial debut with a theatrical anime film. Digital Network Animation is producing the animation. CUCURI is credited for planning and developing the project. Rabbit House and Elephant House will distribute the film, and Kadokawa will publish the original novel.
