Kyoto Animation began streaming a commercial for its Gekijō-ban Kyōkai no Kanata -I'll Be Here- Mirai-hen (Beyond the Boundary The Movie -I'll Be Here- Future Chapter-) film on Saturday.

Text: Really happiness?
Mirai: Am I happy...?

The cast will return for the film. In addition, the staff list is as follows:

Screenplay: Jukki Hanada
Character Design: Miku Kadowaki
Art Director: Mikiko Watanabe
Setting: Hiroyuki Takahashi
Color Design: Kana Miyata
Yōmu Setting: Seiichi Akitake

The Mirai-hen (seen top) and Kako-hen (seen bottom) ticket sets are on sale, and will each bundle a ticket to their respective films, as well as bookmarks. Each set retails for 1,500 yen (about US$13).

Kako-hen will recount the events of the television series, centering on the heroine Mirai Kuriyama, and a second film with the title Gekijō-ban Kyōkai no Kanata -I'll Be Here- Mirai-hen will be a brand-new work, set one year after the television series. Kako-hen will open in Japanese theaters on March 14, and Mirai-hen will premiere on April 25.

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 in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime into several countries as it aired. Sentai Filmworks also announced 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.
