posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Fuji TV's new Blue Lynx boys-love anime label revealed on Friday that it is producing an anime film adaptation of Kou Yoneda's Twittering Birds Never Fly (Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai) manga titled Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai - The Clouds Gather. The film will open this winter. The film's website also revealed a teaser video and visual.
Kaori Makita (Yuri!! on Ice, Banana Fish episode director) is directing the film at GRIZZLY (Yarichin Bitch-bu). Hiroshi Seko (Banana Fish, Mob Psycho 100 II) is penning the script. The piano trio band H ZETTRIO is composing the music.
Digital Manga Publishing publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story:
The sexually masochistic yakuza boss, Yashiro, isn't the type to warm up to others easily. But when Chikara Doumeki, his newly hired bodyguard, catches his interest, he reconsiders his "hands-off" policy with subordinates. As Yashiro's invitations fail, the yakuza boss finds out his bodyguard has a very personal reason for staying at arm's length.
The series has been running in Taiyoh Tosho's Hertz and ihr HertZ magazines, and it has already inspired drama CDs with Tarusuke Shingaki and Wataru Hatano as Yashiro and Dohmeki. Taiyoh Tosho published the manga's fifth compiled book volume in November 2017, and the sixth volume is slated for May 1. Digital Manga Publishing released the manga's third volume in March 2017.
Digital Manga also published Yoneda's boys-love manga No Touching At All (Dōshitemo Furetakunai) in 2010, as well as the Even So, I Will Love You Tenderly (Soredemo, Yasashii Koi wo Suru) spinoff manga. Animate USA released Yoneda's boys-love manga Kanjou Spectrum on Amazon's Kindle ebook store in 2012. Viz Media's SuBLime boys-love imprint is publishing Yoneda's NightS manga.
