Television station Fuji TV announced an anime film adaptation of Kou Yoneda's Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai (Twittering Birds Never Fly) boys' love manga on Friday. Subtitled The Clouds Gather, the film will open in Japan this winter.

Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai will be the first title under Fuji TV's Blue Lynx label, which the company launched on Tuesday. The label will focus on the boys' love genre and primarily produce theatrical animation.

Synopsis
Yashiro is the young leader of Shinseikai and the president of the Shinseikai Enterprise, but like so many powerful men, he leads a double life as a deviant and a masochist. Chikara Doumeki comes to work as a bodyguard for him and, although Yashiro had decided that he would never lay a hand on his own men, he finds that there is something about Doumeki that he can't resist.

Yashiro makes advances toward Doumeki, but Doumeki has mysterious reasons for denying. Yashiro, who abuses his power just to abuse himself, and Doumeki, who faithfully obeys his every command, begin the tumultuous affair of two men with songs in their hearts and no wings to fly.

Oh my god!!! I literally lost my breath when I saw this. Then I screamed. This is one of my all time favorite BLs. Goddamn. I never ever thought this would get adapted. Best news of the year, no doubt. Omg.

oh my god!!!!! I can't believe it! We are being blessed with all this BL coming out!!!!

WOW can't wait !!!! Yoneda's work deserved to have at least one adaptation, glad it will be this one, the PV looked really good. I hope one day it will be Kyuugou's Acid Town & Ike Reibun's Bi no Isu turn too, both are yakuza stories and like Yoneda's some of the best i've read.

I haven't actually gotten to the manga but I see a lot of people say it's quality. I get skeptical with BL titles though. Most of them aren't as good as their ratings or reviews imply.

But getting any M/M material these days especially quality ones is sparse.

Saezuru anime is happening? This feels unreal. I can't process. The art looks more than faithful, so beautiful. GRIZZLY is at again and I trust them to deliver. Blue Lynx is a godsend. I'm excited to witness what the future holds for BL anime. I need drama CD cast to stay.

The manga is very decent. I'm glad one of the best yaoi mangas is being adapted.

HOLY CRAP I LOVE THIS MANGA. SUPER EXCITED!!!

>//< This made my day. Gawd~ You blessed my soul. This piece is one of the best ever found, I hope they won't make changes in the movie. Super excited for it!

I can't believe saezuru will get an anime adaptation. I feel like a new era has begun.

Hurray, another gay tragedy-porn. I was totally over these stories after Mysterio got the D up his bum by the Joker a decade ago.

Oh, I’d my eyes on this for a while after finding out it ranked 4th in the 2016 Kono Manga Sugoi, I think it was, but kept away because of the potential BL. Well, I’ll be hoping the BL element will be kept to a minimum and other departments to excel, mildly looking forward to this!

It's very BL even if the yakuza setting is well done.


Right, thanks for letting me know!

The official website has hints that this film will be the first part of a series because it mentions that this film is the "first chapter". I'm guessing it could be a trilogy that maybe adapts the whole story or at least catch up with the manga.

:o thats great to hear, im okay waiting for each trilogy, better than stuffed all ch in one film. Thank you for the info!
