The movie will premiere in theatres in Japan on 27th November.
It features two childhood friends—Mio and Arata and is set in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro district (the poster shows the two of them at the East Exit of Ikebukuro Station). Mio, who has feelings for Arata, has never been able to tell him how she feels about him. One day, they have a fight over a trivial issue. When Mio goes to make up with Arata in the pouring rain, she gets into a traffic accident. After she regains consciousness, she finds herself in an unfamiliar and mysterious world.
Yoshinobu Sena (Vampire Holmes, Neko-mo, Onda-Ke), in his theatrical anime directorial debut, has both directed the movie and written the script. He is also credited with creating the original concept.
