At a press conference held at the Toho headquarter in Tokyo on Wednesday, an anime film by director Mamoru Hosoda (Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki) titled Mirai no Mirai (Mirai from the Future) was announced. The film is scheduled to open in Japanese theaters on July 20, 2018.
The film centers on Kun-chan, a spoiled four-year-old boy in a small house in a corner of a certain city. When his little sister Mirai is born, he feels that his little sister has deprived him of their parents' affection, and is overwhelmed by a series of first experiences. Amidst his new life, he meets an older version of his little sister Mirai, who has come from the future.
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.
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
Aquamirror said: Another movie that includes time travel for the shitty feels attempt, ridden to the brim with plot holes and inconsistencies. Bring it on Japan.
This takes the cake as the most pompous and idiotic comment on this thread. Congratulations.
Also, what's with the "meh" feelings on TGWLTT? It's legit one of his best films. Now Boy and the Beast, that I can understand being underwhelmed by. I enjoyed it, but it felt messier and less strongly put together than his previous works. I really hope Mirai can live up to the quality bar he set with Wolf Children and Summer Wars.
