HIDIVE has some special plans for Tomohisa Taguchi’s The Tunnel to Summer, the Exit of Goodbyes anime film, which is based on the novel Natsu e no Tunnel, Sayonara no Deguchi by Mei Hachimoku and Kukka. The feature will get theatrical screenings in English this fall, and you can see a subtitled trailer below.

Following its original Japanese opening in September 2022, The Tunnel to Summer, the Exit of Goodbyes had its North American premiere at Otakon, which was held in Washington, DC from July 28 to July 30, and won the Paul Grimault Award at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. According to HIDIVE’s announcement, it can’t reveal a dub or ticket sale times just yet. 


Urashima Tunnel – Once you enter that tunnel, you can get whatever you want, but at a price. Kaoru Tono, who seems to have an elusive personality and traumatic past, and Anzu Hanashiro, who is struggling to reconcile her ideal image and true-to-heart attitude, team -up to investigate the Urashima Tunnel and get what they want. This is an unforgettable summer story of nostalgia and sprinting in a remote countryside.
