A theatrical film version of Madhouse's Aoi Bungaku Series anime has been green-lit for a December 12 opening in Japan. The film will re-edit the four episodes based on Osamu Dazai's No Longer Human (Ningen Shikkaku) novel, which have character designs inspired by manga artist and novel illustrator Takeshi Obata (Death Note, Hikaru no Go, Bakuman.). This "director's cut" will include new "navigation" footage which is being created specifically for the film with narrator Masato Sakai.
