The official Twitter account for the anime film adaptation of Fumiyo Kouno’s In This Corner of the World (Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni) manga has announced that the film will get an extended version with about 30 more minutes of footage. The new version, titled Kono Sekai no (Sara ni Ikustumono) Katasumi ni (In (Several More) Corners of the This World), will begin screening in Japan in December 2018.
The concept behind the film is to give the perspective of “several more lives” in addition to Suzu’s, so it has a new title to reflect the new theme. It will adapt more scenes from the manga.
The new scenes include Suzu crossing paths with Rin in the fall of 1944 and the winter and spring of 1945. Another new segment will focus on the Makurazaki Typhoon of September 1945, while Suzu is worried for her younger sister Sumi.
Non is again voicing Suzu. kotringo is returning to compose and perform a new song “Kanashikute Yarikirenai” (It’s Sad and I Can’t Bear It).
