The film opened in Japan in April 2017. The film adapts Tomihiko Morimi's (The Eccentric Family, The Tatami Galaxy) novel of the same name. The story takes place in Kyoto, and follows an upperclassman ("Sempai") who falls in love with his underclassman ("Girl with Black Hair") and tries to get her attention.
GKIDS announced its license for the film in January along with Yuasa's other films Lu over the wall and Mind Game.
