That’s the news from a event centered around the series Sunday, where an exhibition featuring art from light novel illustrator Kurehito Misaki was also announced.

So far, no additional details about the film have been revealed.

The exhibition, which features Saekano art by Kurehito Misaki, will take place in Tokyo, Osaka and Taiwan next year.

Both seasons of Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend were animated at A-1 Pictures and directed by Kanta Kamei with script supervision from Fumiaki Maruto and ran on Fuji TV’s Noitamina block. The story, as described by Aniplex USA, goes:

“I’m gonna make you into a heroine that no one can resist!”

One day, an otaku high school student Tomoya Aki has a fateful encounter with a girl amidst the beautiful cherry blossom trees. This meeting inspires Tomoya to design his very own “gal-ge” (dating-simulation PC game) featuring a heroine modeled after the girl he saw. In order to make his desire a reality, Tomoya must persuade a few eccentric “creators” such as the ace member of the art club and his childhood friend, Eriri Spencer Sawamura and the school’s top student, Utaha Kasumigaoka to join his development team. Meanwhile, Tomoya is shocked to learn that the girl he idolized as his muse for this whole project was none other than Megumi Kato, who is a super low-profile girl who he doesn’t even notice that she is in the same class! But, this doesn’t dissuade Tomoya. He is determined to make Megumi an ultimate gal-ge heroine!
