Garden of Remembrance, the upcoming short anime from director Naoko Yamada (Liz and the Blue Bird), has just revealed a new teaser trailer.
The short film, which is set for release in 2024, is animated over at Science Saru, where Yamada is also working on the full-length film Kimi no Iro (Your Color). That film is also set for 2024.
Garden of Remembrance features character designs by manga-ka Etsuko Mizusawa (Hello, This is Terumi) and music by Lovely Summer-chan. Here’s how the official site describes it:
Beer cans and a whisky glass are placed in an open space on the floor. Though a bit disorganized, ”Your” room is filled with art supplies and an electric guitar lining the perimeter of the room. The alarm on a phone goes off, and “You” leisurely wake up to start your day. The anemone flower that “I” liked. A precious flower that holds memories which tie “You” and “I” together. After opening your bedroom closet one day, “You” become engrossed in your memories of “Me.” A story that represents “Me,” “You,” our “Childhood Friend,” and our goodbyes.
