To Aru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku Light Novel Reportedly Gets Film

posted on by Egan Loo
Story of mercenary pilot who must protect empress-to-be over enemy waters

An advertisement for the latest book from author Koroku Inumura has reportedly announced that a film adaptation of Inumura's To Aru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku (Flashbacks to a Certain Aerial Pilot) light novel has been green-lit. The advertisement does not indicate whether the film will be anime or live-action.

To Aru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku's story revolves around Charles Karino, a Revaamu Empire mercenary aerial pilot who mans the twin-seater reconnaissance seaplane Santa Cruz. One day, he receives a preposterous assignment: to fly solo over 12,000 kilometers of enemy waters to protect a girl named Fana del Moral. Fana happens to be the next in line to the empire's throne and a girl possessing beauty "equal to 5,000 beams of light."

The pictured advertisement is for the third volume of To Aru Hikūshi e no Koiuta (Love Songs to a Certain Aerial Pilot) light novel, the second To Aru Hikūshi e no project from Inumura. That volume will ship on December 18. Haruyuki Morisawa illustrates both Tsuioku and Koiuta. Tsuioku has already been adapted into a radio drama and a manga by Maiko Ogawa in Shogakukan's Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine.
