posted on by Egan Loo
Anime of manga by Natsume's Book of Friends' Yuki Midorikawa to open this month

The Japanese movie website Cinema Today began streaming a 96-second trailer for the anime film adaptation of Yuki Midorikawa's Hotarubi no Mori e manga on Thursday. Midorikawa is best known for creating the Natsume Yūjin-Chō (Natsume's Book of Friends) manga and anime.

The story of Hotarubi no Mori e centers around Hotaru, a little girl who gets lost in an enchanted forest where apparitions reside. A young boy, Gin, appears before Hotaru, but she cannot touch him for fear of making him disappear.

The anime studio Brains Base are animating the film with director Takahiro Ōmori and music by Makoto Yoshimori. The film stars Ayane Sakura (Dream Eater Merry) as Hotaru and Kouki Uchiyama (Infinite Stratos, C, Soul Eater) as Gin.

The film will open in Japan on September 17, and the third anime season of Natsume's Book of Friends is now airing.
