Break of Dawn (Bokura no Yoake), the science fiction manga by Tetsuya Imai, is getting a theatrical anime film that’s due out in Japan this fall.
The manga, which ran for two volumes’ worth of content back in 2011, is set in 2049, and is about a comet headed straight for earth, and a young boy who meets an alien who’s somehow connected with said comet.
Western readers may be familiar with Imai through Alice & Zoroku, which is published in English by Seven Seas, and received an anime adaptation.

But just when she’s about to give up, Sana meets Zoroku, a stubborn, old Japanese man. He believes that people should always “do the right thing”- psychic powers or no! Sana’s destiny is about to change in a big way…
