Kadokawa opened an official website for an original anime film titled Goodbye, DonGlees! on Friday, scheduled for a 2022 opening. The website also revealed a teaser visual (pictured), the main production staff members, and an introduction to the film.

Director, Script: Atsuko Ishizuka (Sora yori mo Tooi Basho, No Game No Life)
Character Design: Takahiro Yoshimatsu (Hunter x Hunter (2011), Overlord)
Studio: Madhouse (Sonny Boy, ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka)
Production: Kadokawa

The film depicts the miracle-like encounter of the "DonGlees" boys. At the end of an adventure with friends that began during an unusual summer vacation, the boys arrive in Iceland—the land of flames and ice. What "treasure" have the boys found by looking at themselves and transcending the world...!

Man Madhouse is seemly making a comeback with this project, their collaboration with Mappa and Sonny Boy. Now if they just made One Punch Man Season 3 then they’d be up there with Ufotable, Mappa and Bones again

Atsuko Ishizuka, so count me in

Also, I believe this is the first time she’s doing the script as well (I believe she had Jukki Hanada script NGNL and Yorimoi)

Will be interesting to see how it turns out

We've known about this one for a while just like Sonny Boy.

There's probably more left to be announced by Madhouse considering 2022 is the studio's 50th anniversary.

This is a welcome return for Madhouse. Looks like they already had themselves back on their feet with having three original productions consecutively alongside projects that were planned in advance. This is a good sign.

The animation landscape will be interesting again if this also marks Madhouse's resurgence to relevance. Having more studios for creatives to play around means more quality productions to come.

Also, an anime set in Iceland? Sign me up!

I know the people behind it and the poster looks interesting but I still need more information to judge if it's interesting or not.
Poor voice actors. I hope they're warned before they sign up for this.

Madhouse's been quite active recently.

Looking forward to all of their works, Sonny Boy, the collab with MAPPA and now this.
