Funimation Adds Heaven's Lost Property/SoraOto Movie

posted on by Egan Loo
Sora no Otoshimono: Tokei-jikake no Angeloid just opened in Japan on June 25

The North American anime distributor Funimation announced at its Otakon panel on Friday that it licensed the Sora no Otoshimono: Tokei-jikake no Angeloid (Heaven's Lost Property the Movie: The Angeloid of Clockwork) film. The project serves as a continuation of the two Sora no Otoshimono (Heaven's Lost Property) anime series, which adapted Suu Minazuki's fantasy comedy manga of the same name. Funimation will release the film in 2012.

Kadokawa Pictures described the film tongue-in-cheek as "this summer's #1 date movie for 'ria-jū.'" "Ria-jū" is a recent slang term for people who enjoy real life, as opposed to otaku. Director Hisashi Saito, series script supervisor Yuuko Kakihara, and character designer Yoshihiro Watanabe returned from the two television series to work on the film. The film, which introduced a new Angeloid character, just opened in Japan on Saturday, June 25.

Funimation already licensed the two Heaven's Lost Property television anime series.
