I have a feeling the release date will be around 2026 or 2027 for this one. We still don't have any additional info about "Hana is beautiful" (same direction's project) and "Cherry and Virgin" both were suppose to be 2D x Rotoscope anime.

@ZXEAN Tbf Iwaisawa said close to the end of last year he had another film that's gonna release before Hana (most likely was talking about this one.) so it looks like Hana could be the one releasing in 2026 - 2027.

Cherry and Virgin is a completely different staff

@DatRandomDude If that's the case then we can expect 2025 release date for this one.

I know Cherry and Virgin have completely different stuff but it's also 2D x Rotoscope anime so I mentioned it. I have a very bad feeling about that anime too be honest hopefully it doesn't end up getting cancelled.
