The official website for the Yuki Yuna Is a Hero television anime series announced on Monday that the Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shō (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero: Washio Sumi Chapter) theatrical anime will have three films.
The Japanese pre-sale website Movie Ticket is additionally listing dates for the three films. The first film is slated for March 18, the second film is slated for April, and the third film is slated for July. Movie Ticket is selling a ticket bundle for all three films for 4,500 yen (about US$42).
The original announcement for the second season of Yuki Yuna Is a Hero had stated that the second season would consist of two parts: Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shō and Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Yūsha no Shō (Yuki Yuna is a Hero: Hero Chapter).
Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shō is the anime's "first half" (six episodes), and adapts writer Takahiro and illustrator BUNBUN's illustrated novel series Washio Sumi wa Yūsha de Aru (Washio Sumi is a Hero). The announcement had stated this part of the anime would screen in theaters starting in March 2017 before it aired on television. Suzuko Mimori will perform the theme song for the theatrical version of the anime.
Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Yūsha no Shō, the second half of the anime, is a direct sequel to the first season.
The first anime's story takes place in the era of the gods, year 300. Yūna Yūki lives an ordinary life as a second year middle school student, but she's also a member of the "Hero Club," where club activities involve dealing with a mysterious being called "Vertex."
The 12-episode anime series premiered in October 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Ponycan USA released the anime in three Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo packs in North America in 2015.
