Film version of TV anime series to open in Japan in spring 2015

Kyoto Animation began streaming an announcement ad for the movie version of its Kyōkai no Kanata (Beyond the Boundary) anime franchise on Thursday. The film will open in spring 2015.

Mirai: From now on I am going to the place that sempai is at.
Text: You changed for me...
Mirai: I will go and destroy what is beyond the boundary.
Text: This world matured in solitude
Mirai: I'm glad I was born. I'm really glad I met you sempai.
Text: That's why I—
Mirai: Truly...
Akihito: Kuriyama-san!

The dark fantasy television anime series follows a high school second-year student named Akihito Kanbara (KENN). Although the boy appears human, he is half Yōmu and invulnerable to wounds because he can heal quickly. One day, Akihito meets first-year student Mirai Kuriyama (Risa Taneda) when it seems she is about to jump from the school rooftop. Mirai is isolated because of her ability to manipulate blood, which is unique even among the Under World Warriors. Disturbing events begin to unfold after Akihito saves Mirai.

The television anime premiered in Japan last October and Crunchyroll streamed the anime into several countries as it aired. Sentai Filmworks also announced in October that it licensed the anime for North America.

Nagomu Torii's original Kyōkai no Kanata light novel received an honorable mention in the novel category of the Kyoto Animation Award program in 2011.
