Announced back in March 2015 as a project moving forward from A-1 Pictures, we now have a theatrical release date for the Doukyuusei film. We learned back in June that it would be getting a theatrical run and now it’s set for a February 20th, 2016 debut in thirty theaters across the country. Advance tickets go on sale next week which includes two illustrated postcards to entice fan to purchase early.
The original work comes from Asumiko Nakamura, a one volume/six chapter release that was serialized in Opera back in 2006 to 2007. It has a pretty solid team behind it with Shouko Nakamura directing and Akemi Hayashi on board as the character designer. Kenji Nojima and Hiroshi Kamiya are set to start in the lead roles.
Plot concept: A boy met a boy. They were in the flush of youth. Their love felt like a dream, like sparkling soda pop.
