4th Tamayura Film's Key Visual Revealed
posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the four-part Tamayura: Sotsugyō Shashin (Tamayura: Graduation Photos) film series unveiled the main visual for the fourth and final film, Tamayura: Sotsugyō Shashin Dai-4-bu -Ashita- (Tamayura: Graduation Photos Part 4: Morning), on Friday.
The fourth film will open in Japan on February 20. Maaya Sakamoto will return to perform the film's theme song, "Sotsugyō Shashin."
The first film, Tamayura: Sotsugyō Shashin Dai-1-bu -Kizashi- (Tamayura: Graduation Photos Part 1: Sprout), opened on April 4, the second film opened on August 29, and the third film opened on November 28.
The story of the first film is set in the spring, when Fū, Kaoru, Norie, and Maon get promoted to third-year high school students, while Kanae has graduated. Two kōhai (students younger than the original characters) join the photography club. Even though they bring in new friends, their lively daily life remains unchanged. Yet, the four third-year students are slowly thinking about their own future dreams and paths as they face graduation in about a year. Aya Uchida and Mayu Iizuka play the kōhai.
After all four films open in Japan, the staff will hold Tamayura "graduation ceremonies" in the spring of 2016. There will be two locations for the ceremonies in Tokyo's Kanta area and Takehara City in Hiroshima Prefecture, the setting of the anime. The four Blu-ray Discs sold at participating theaters will bundle entry forms for advance tickets to the graduation ceremonies.
The Tamayura anime project with an original concept by Junichi Sato premiered in 2010 with a series of original video animation (OVA) volumes. The project then spawned a television anime series titled Tamayura - Hitotose in 2011, with a second season titled Tamayura - More Aggressive airing in 2013.
