Movie hits select digital outlets soon, home video release to follow
Sentai Filmworks announced the license of AURA, aka Aura: Maryūinkōga Saigo no Tatakai, a 2013 anime film based on the light novel by Romeo Tanaka. The movie will be available soon through select digital outlets, with a home video release to follow.
AURA is directed by Seiji Kishi (Assassination Classroom, Persona 4: The Animation), with Makoto Uezu (Humanity Has Declined, Akame ga Kill!) on series composition and a script by Jun Kumagai (Nobunaga the Fool). AIC A.S.T.A. (Persona 4: The Animation, Heaven's Lost Property) handles animation production.
The feature film takes full advantage of animation’s unique ability to dramatize and seamlessly blur the lines between fantasy and reality to focus on the world of “chunibyo”. As a former sufferer, Ichiro Sato once spent much of his life living in a world of delusions. When he encounters a similarly afflicted young woman at his new school, however, he’s simultaneously forced to confront both the students who bully her and the fantasies that continue to simmer within his own mind.
