Back in March, TOHO revealed an original anime work called Kimi wa Kanata. Translating as You Are the Beyond, it’s scheduled for a fall 2020 debut in Japan. The official site got a welcome update today with a new key visual you can see below and a 30-second promo teaser for it. Additionally, the site revealed a November 27th, 2020 theatrical premiere for it.
Yoshinobu Sena wrote the screenplay and directed it while also coming up with the original concept. Digital Network Animation is on board for the production.
The film stars Honoka Matsumoto as Mio and Toshiki Seto as Shin in the leading roles.
Plot Concept: The 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, and sometime afterward, 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.
