The official website for The Anthem of the Heart (Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterun Da.), the original anime film from the anohana (Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai.) and Toradora! anime staff, revealed the film's September 19 premiere date on Monday.
The website also revealed that Aniplex will hold a stage event at the AnimeJapan 2015 event (March 21-22), where director Tatsuyuki Nagai, scriptwriter Mari Okada, and character designer Masayoshi Tanaka will announce the movie's cast and story, and unveil the film's trailer.
The website also revealed that tickets will be sold in advance at the Aniplex booth of AnimeJapan 2015. Those who purchase advance tickets will receive an exclusive poster depicting the main character holding a cherry blossom branch (pictured below). The poster is exclusive to the event, and will not be sold in theaters during the movie's screening.
The film reunites staff members from the anohana and Toradora! anime. Tatsuyuki Nagai (A Certain Scientific Railgun, Waiting in the Summer) is again directing the film at the studio A-1 Pictures. Mari Okada (M3 the dark metal, Hana-Saku Iroha) is writing the script, and Masayoshi Tanaka (Highschool of the Dead, Joshiraku) is designing the characters.
