Latest entry in Fuji TV's noitaminA programming block is based on a novel by Shion Miura
A new key visual has been released for The Great Passage (known in Japan as Fune o Amu), an upcoming TV anime drama that will air on Fuji TV's noitaminA block beginning on October 13, 2016.
The story of The Great Passage follows Mitsuya Majime, an employee of the Genbu Shobo publishing house who is transferred from his sales position to a post in the dictionary editing department. There he re-discovers his love for language as he works on assembling a massive Japanese dictionary entitled "The Great Passage". As work on the project progresses, Mitsuya also begins to fall in love with Kaguya Hayashi, a chef-in-training and the grand-daughter of his landlady.
The Great Passage is based on the 2011 novel by Shion Miura, which also served as the source for a live-action film adaptation in 2013. The Great Passage TV anime is directed by Toshimasa Kuroyanagi and features animation by ZEXCS. In addition to airing on Fuji TV in Japan, the series is licensed for online streaming in North America by Amazon Prime.
