If I can redo that time.
If you were still in this world.
The one whom I joined hands together with to save your future was,
"Who on earth are you?"
Myself in the future.
Even if the world is destroyed,
I want to see you one more time.
"This fall, Japanese animation will accelerate"
In addition, the voice cast for its three main characters are announced:
- Naomi Katagaki (in Chinese characters): Takumi Kitamura (21/"Me" in I Want to Eat Your Pancreas live-action film)
- Naomi Katagaki (in katakana): Touri Matsuzaka (30/Takeru Shiba/Shinken Red in Samurai Sentai Shinkenger)

According to director Ito, the three main cast's voice recording session was already done using the
"pre-scoring" method, where character voices are recorded before they are animated. The most famous
anime film using that method is Katsuhiro Otomo's AKIRA in 1988.
