Craftar Studios Inc. has opened a website to announce that it is producing an original anime film titled Ashita Sekai ga Owaru Toshitemo (Even if the World Will End Tomorrow). The film will open in Japan on January 25, 2019.
Craftar is credited with the original work, and Yūhei Sakuragi is directing the film and writing the script. Shochiku Media Division is distributing the film. The staff is holding auditions for voice actors for the film.
The film focuses on Shin and Kotori, who are both third years in high school. Shin lost his mother when he was little, and since then he has a tendency to close himself off. Kotori is his childhood friend who always looks out for him. One day, another “self” from another Japan appears in front of them.
Sakuragi is also writing a novel that is considered the original work for the film. Kadokawa’s Da Vinci magazine will begin serializing the novel in its November 2018 issue.
