posted on by Sarah Nelkin
A live-action film inspired by Vocaloid composer halyosy's song "Sakura no Ame" (Rain of Cherry Blossoms) has been green-lit for a premiere this year.
In response to the announcement, halyosy commented that although the artist believed it would not be surprising whatever happened next for the song, the announcement of a live-action film still caused surprise.
The cast, staff, and other details will be announced at a later time on the film's official website.
The original song tells the story of a Japanese school's graduation. After its release in 2008, the song was performed at various graduation ceremonies throughout Japan during 2009 and 2010. The song also inspired a novel (cover seen right) with a cover illustration by Yū and a story by Tōru Fujita.
