ODDTAXI Film Reveals First Trailer, Key Art

oddtaxiODDTAXI, one of last year’s most talked-about anime, is getting a theatrical film. It’s called ODDTAXI: In the Woods, and now we’ve got a trailer and some key art.

The film hits theaters in Japan April 1 (no foolin’).

The bad news: the film is partially a recap of the series. The good news: it also shows what happens after the show ended. It’s made by the same folks who worked on the series, including director Baku Kinoshita.

Here’s how the Crunch described the ODDTAXI series:

This town should look familiar, but suddenly, it’s not. The taxi driver Odokawa lives a very mundane life. He has no family, doesn’t really hang out with others, and he’s an oddball who is narrow-minded and doesn’t talk much. The only people he can call his friends are his doctor, Gouriki and his classmate from high school, Kakibana. All of his patrons seem to be slightly odd themselves. The college student who wants to be noticed online, Kabasawa. A nurse with secrets, Shirakawa. A comedy duo, the Homosapiens… All these mundane conversations somehow lead to a girl who’s gone missing.
