An official website has opened for an anime film adaptation for Yoru Sumino's Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai (I Want to Eat Your Pancreas) novel on Monday. The film is set to premiere in 2018.

Synopsis
One day, I—a high schooler—found a paperback in the hospital. The "Disease Coexistence Journal" was its title. It was a diary that my classmate, Sakura Yamauchi, had written in secret. Inside, it was written that due to her pancreatic disease, her days were numbered. And thus, I coincidentally went from Just-a-Classmate to a Secret-Knowing-Classmate. It was as if I were being drawn to her, who was my polar opposite. However, the world presented the girl that was already suffering from an illness with an equally cruel reality... (Source: MU)

Sumino launched the original novel on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website and Futabasha published the series with illustrations by loundraw in a single volume in June 2015. The novel has sold over 1.2 million copies as of May 2017. A manga adaptation drawn by Idumi Kirihara was serialized in Monthly Action magazine between August 2016 and May 2017. The novel inspired a live-action film by the same title, which premiered on July 28.

Definitely excited about this one. Seems like the art and animation are fine; character designs are on the simpler side but that's understandable. Since people are comparing them, having read the novel (and manga) I daresay this is going to be far superior to Your Name and Koe no Katachi in terms of plot. I hope the anime manages to improve on the less-than-satisfactory manga adaptation on the ending part.

Weird title, but PV looks promising and 2 hours movie.


I've started reading the novel, and it says that the girl said that (the title) because apparently if you eat the organ of an animal which is the same as the one that caused the illness you kind of get cured? Don't know if that's true anyway... I've only started it. Reminds me of that Ienaga from Golden Kamuy...


Looks like reference from old legend, but i think i understand why the author gave the title.

You may have found it disappointing but A Silent Voice has been generally very well received. Different tastes and all that stuff. :)

Yeah. Some people have really strong preference towards drama even without any/well-written build up & pretty visuals. I understand. So, again, I hope this one will be a solid anime, especially in term of writing & build up for drama.

Well, it's not that the anime is very depressing. It's just that it's disappointingly not as good as many people claim it to be. So I hope this one is will be a solid anime.

Personally I thought they did an excellent job with A Silent Voice. They pared the story back a bit to remove some of the cruft and finished it in the best place IMHO. The only comment I would make is that Kawai and Mashiba suffered a bit much from the trim but I never found Mashiba that much of an interesting character and yeah Kawai is just a nasty piece of work.

While the title seems pretty silly, the PV looks pretty nice. I have a feeling it's animated by Troyca from the looks of the PV.

Let me guess
This is one of those overrated movies that will get a +9 score because "the feels"?

I hope it's not another A Silent Voice, if that's what you mean.

Both Koe no Katachi and Your Name are good movies. Your Name is a little overrated, but KnK is not. Plus, they are rated highly for many reasons.

Feels incoming...

Aug 7, 1:26 PM by Leo_10

Excited. Full-length novel adaptations make for good anime. The premise seems interesting enough.

Aug 7, 9:18 AM by aj_nn

Apart from that weird ass title lol, I'm all in for this (Even though it's gonna be another feels fest that will inevitably break me TwT)

A novel adaptation, nice. Too bad it's another teenagers story. -_-

Aug 7, 8:50 AM by Rei366

Will watch.

Looks nice.

loundraw isn't doing the character designs? :\ Sad.
Hope more novels illustrated by loundraw get adapted (Sugaru Miaki please!)

Aug 7, 5:11 AM by Paulo27

guys, rather than koe no katachi, it's more similiar with tokidoki (one shot by komi naoshi, nisekoi author) if anything...

Aug 7, 4:42 AM by Kuma

This reminds me of A Silent Voice but instead of someone who's deaf it's someone with a life-threatening disease (btw it's pancreatic cancer). I think the feels are going to be much worse than the A Silent Voice... From the PV, the art looks great and the music seems alright too. But the title tho...
Going to attempt to read the novel before the film comes out.
