A boy who meets his imouto from the future, who has now become cute neesan? Out of context it sounds like a teasing plot for a romantic light novel, lol. But I will still wait for it, as it promises to be a good family film.

Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

I'm no expert, but possibly because of the popularity of Yasutaka Tsutsui's famous SF novel, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time? I think it's considered a classic in Japan. Hosoda also filmed that one.

Lol, I thought the title was "Future of Future"/ Future's Future.
This might be good, I'll check it out when available.

Sounds good to me. I'm personally looking forward to Mamoru Hosoda's next work and this has potential from what's shown so far.

well at least it's better than yet another Isekai movie or anime. Seriously why is there always a transported to a different world anime.

But seriously looking forward to it. Loved wolf children.

He always make kids stuff, I guess Studio Ghibli loves kids.

“Well isn’t that obvious!? You run the hell away! If that doesn’t work, then you pray for a brighter tomorrow! Use kids or work as an excuse to refuse that woman! Listen here, I only have one day of rest. One f*cking day…”

It seems more simplistic in premise than his previous work, & that's good. Maybe this time Hosada can focus more on making sure the script written well.

Time travel is nice but considering how meh Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo was I don't have much expectations, let's see it it ends up being good.

I'm SO excited! I loved the way he pulled off Girl Who Leapt Through Time, so even if the premise of this one sounds typical, I'm sure Hosoda will do it in a heartwarming and interesting way.

The cover art looks like The Girl Who Leapt Through Time rotated 180 degrees combined with Sakasama No Patema :p

Another movie that includes time travel for the shitty feels attempt, ridden to the brim with plot holes and inconsistencies. Bring it on Japan.

Personally, I wasn't a fan of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, but for those who were, this will definitely be right up their alley! So while I most likely won't watch it, I am happy that it is being produced for the numerous TGWLTT fans

The names for anime are getting even more dull as time goes on.

Hosoda can do better than this. Not saying it won't be good but it sounds samey and not as fantastical as some of his other films were going.

Not sure what to think of this tbh. Looks rather 'meh' than 'good' according to the trailer & the synopsis.

Got me at Mamoru Hosoda. It doesn't seem too interesting yet, but unless the reviews are terrible, I'll definitely be watching this.

More Mamoru Hosoda is nice.

Though I do hope that its handled better than The Girl Who Lepth through Time since I didn't liked that film that much.
