Kyōkai no Kanata -I'll Be Here- Mirai-hen to open on April 25

Kyoto Animation began streaming the second full trailer for its upcoming Gekijō-ban Kyōkai no Kanata -I'll Be Here- Mirai-hen (Beyond the Boundary The Movie -I'll Be Here- Future Chapter-) film on Wednesday.

Mirai: Why was that person there at that time?
Akihito: Those memories are false, and not the truth.
Mirai: Why are you avoiding me like this?
Hiroomi: Let me tell you the truth.
Akihito: Stop it!!
Ayaka: All right, let's do this.
Hiroomi: You're...!
Mirai: I got cursed...?
Hiroomi: Isn't it impossible to feel true happiness?
Mitsuki: Big brother...!
Akihito: Me and Kuriyama... Are forbidden to be together...
Mirai: I'm bringing misfortune to senpai!
Mirai: This is... the place beyond... the boundary...?

The website for the film also updated to announce that three Kanto-area theaters will host stage greetings by unspecified cast or staff members on April 25, followed by stage greetings in three Kansai-area theaters on April 26. To encourage repeat viewers, participating theaters will give away one of four different coasters illustrated by character designer Miku Kadowaki every week from April 25 to May 16 and beyond.

The main cast and main staff is returning from the earlier television series.

The earlier Kako-hen film recounted the events of the television series, centering on the heroine Mirai Kuriyama, and the 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 opened 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.
