Eleven Arts announced during its Anime NYC 2022 panel that it has licensed the Blue Thermal anime film. The film will have its North American premiere at Anime Frontier 2022 in Fort Worth, Texas in December 2022.
Blue Thermal is described as:
“I want to experience a love that sparkles!” Arriving from Nagasaki with her wishful mantra is Tamaki Tsuru, who in high school could think only about volleyball. Things don’t begin well, however, when she looks for an extracurricular club to join and proceeds to immediately ding a glider at aviation club tryouts ending up having to work it off. She is initially disillusioned with campus life. Then Kuramochi, the club leader and glider pilot, takes Tamaki under his wing, and from the moment he takes her up for a flight in a glider, Tamaki becomes a captive of the vast beauty of the skies.
The film opened in Japanese theaters on March 4, 2022.
