Both films to screen at Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal

Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival began streaming English-subtitled trailers for the live-action Chihayafuru films on Friday. Both films will screen at the festival, which will be held from July 14-August 3.

The first film, Chihayafuru: Kami no Ku (Chihayafuru: Upper Phrase), opened on March 19. The second film, Chihayafuru: Shimo no Ku (Chihayafuru: Lower Phrase), opened on April 29. A sequel film has been greenlit.

The films star:

Norihiro Koizumi (Midnight Sun, Kanojo wa Uso o Ai Shisugiteru) directed both films.

Suetsugu launched the manga in Kodansha's Be-Love magazine in December 2007, and Kodansha will publish the manga's 32nd volume on July 13. The series inspired the first 25-episode television anime season from October 2011 to March 2012, and the second 25-episode season aired in Japan from January-June 2013. Additionally, the 22nd volume of the manga bundled an original anime DVD when it shipped in September 2013.
