With this just under a month away, we now have a look at the main cover for the limited edition and its overall packaging spread. The limited-edition versions come with a booklet, a bonus CD with music, the film itself being a director’s cut, as well as an audio commentary.
The film has the Super Peace Busters group handling it which includes Tatsuyuki Nagai as the director, Mari Okada on the screenplay, and Masayoshi Tanaka working the character designs and serving as the chief animation director. CloverWorks is producing the animation for it.
The Japanese cast includes Shion Wakayama as Aoi Aioi, Riho Yoshioka as Akane Aioi, Ryō Yoshizawa as Shinnosuke Kanomura/Shinno, Ken Matsudaira as Dankichi Nitobe, Yō Taichi as Masatsugu Nakamura, Fukushi Ochiai as Masamichi Nakamura, and Atsumi Tanezaki as Chika Ōtaki.
Plot Concept: The film’s story is set in a town nestled in the mountains. It centers on second-year high school student and aspiring musician Aoi Aioi, her older sister Akane Aioi, Akane’s ex-boyfriend and struggling guitarist Shinnosuke Kanomura, and Shinno — who is actually Shinnosuke from 13 years ago after traveling from the past to the present.
Aoi and Akane’s parents passed away in an accident 13 years ago, and Akane gave up her ambition of going to Tokyo with Shinnosuke to take care of Aoi. Since then, Aoi has felt indebted to her older sister. One day, she is invited to perform at a music festival as a session musician by a famous enka singer named Dankichi. At the same time, Shinnosuke returns to Aoi and Akane’s town after a long time away. Then, Shinno mysteriously appears, and Aoi falls in love for the first time.
