The Avex Network has posted a 90-second trailer for director Sunao Katabuchi (Black Lagoon) and MADHOUSE's anime film adaptation of Nobuko Takagi's Mai Mai Miracle (Mai Mai Shinko to Sennen no Mahō) novel on the YouTube website. The story is set in 1955 in a town in southwestern Japan, where a nine-year-old girl named Shinko has an ancient family connection to a thousand-year-old province known as Suō. Shinko joins Kiiko, a new transfer student from her school, on a magical adventure.
Before directing Black Lagoon, Katabuchi was an assistant director on Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's Kiki's Delivery Service. He also directed Meiken Lassie and Princess Arete. Mai Mai Miracle will open in Japan on November 21.
