The new homepage for the anime based on Hideji Oda's Miyori no Mori (Miyori's Forest) manga revealed that the two-hour special will air on August 25. The anime with the unusually high television budget of 210 million yen (about US$1.7 million) features The Girl Who Leapt Through Time's art director (Nizō Yamamoto) and writer (Satoko Okudera), with Yuu Aoi (Honey and Clover movie's Hagumi) in the title role. The spiritual fantasy depicts an 11-year-old girl whose family is in separation and the spirits she can hear in the nearby forest. Source: Moon Phase
