posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the anime film of novelist Osamu Sōda's Bokura no Nanokakan Sensō (Seven Days War or Our Seven-Day War) novel unveiled a teaser trailer and visual for the film on Tuesday. The teaser reveals the film's December opening date, and that the studio Ajia-do is working on the film.
The mystery story and social satire begins on the day before summer vacation, when every boy in a first-year class of a downtown Tokyo middle school disappears. Was it some accident? A mass kidnapping? Actually, the boys holed themselves up in an abandoned factory on the riverbed. With support from the schoolgirls, the boys start a revolution against the adults from this "liberation zone." The new anime film shifts the settings to the year 2020.
Yūta Murano (Brave Beats, Dream Festival!, How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord) is directing the film. Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass, Valvrave the Liberator, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress) is penning the film's script. Keishin is designing the original concept for the characters, and Hiroshi Shimizu (Michiko & Hatchin, Megalobox) is adapting those designs for animation.
Kadokawa Shoten published the novel in April 1985, and the novel inspired a live-action film starring Rie Miyazawa in 1988. The novel also spawned a series of print sequels and spinoffs that has sold over 170 million copies and has added new volumes as recently as last year.
