New Original Film from Anohana Team Gets Fresh Poster

The team behind 2011’s Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day are back with a new original film. Her Blue Sky (Sora no Aosa wo Shiru Hito yo) is set to hit Japanese theaters October 11, and now it’s got a fresh new poster.

The film is directed by Tatsuyuki Nagai, written by Mari Okada and character design-ed by Masayoshi Tanaka. That’s the same creative team behind Anohana and the aThe Anthem of the Heart.

Like those two properties, Her Blue Sky is set in Chichibu, Saitama. It centers around a group of four high schoolers, and features both a love story and time travel.

The main cast is as follows: 

Shion Wakayama as Aoi Aioi
Riho Yoshioka as Akane Aioi
Ryo Yoshizawa as Shinnosuke and Shinno

The new poster displays those four main characters against a blue sky backdrop. The tagline on the poster reads: “a painful, mysterious story of ‘a second time first love’ that binds the past and the present.”
