The official website for Purple Cow Studio Japan's Sakasama no Patema (Patema Inverted) revealed details about the anime film's plot and main character on Tuesday. Time of Eve creator Yasuhiro Yoshiura is writing and directing the anime film for release throughout Japan this year.
The story will take place in an underground world where tunnels extend everywhere. Even though they live in dark and confined spaces, people wear protective clothes and lead quiet and enjoyable lives. Patema, a princess in her underground village, loves to explore the tunnels. Her favorite place is a "danger zone" that her village prohibits people from entering. Even though she's scolded, Patema's curiosity can't be held back. No one ever explained what the supposed danger was. On her usual trip to the "danger zone," Patema faces unexpected events. When hidden secrets come to light, the story begins to unfold.
Yoshiura previously wrote "This new animation is … a story about girl-meets-boy, and boy-meets-girl. It is an extremely righteous, but also extremely strange, story."
