Drama CD voice actors Tarusuke Shingaki and Wataru Hatano reprise their roles for February 2020 film
A new trailer has been published for Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai The clouds gather ("Twittering Birds Never Fly The clouds gather"), an upcoming anime theatrical film based on the BL ("boy's love") manga by Kou Yoneda about a promiscuous Yakuza boss who becomes infatuated with his newest bodyguard.
The new trailer (which features strong language and sexual themes) confirms that voice actors Tarusuke Shingaki and Wataru Hatano reprise their roles from the audio drama CDs as Yakuza boss Yashiro and bodyguard Chikara Doumeki, respectively.
The original Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai manga is serialized in Taiyoh Tosho's ihr HertZ josei manga magazine, and an English language version is also published by Digital Manga Publishing under the title Twittering Birds Never Fly. Digital Manga Publishing describes the story of the series as follows:
The sexually masochistic yakuza boss, Yashiro, isn't the type to warm up to others easily. But when Chikara Doumeki, his newly hired bodyguard, catches his interest, he reconsiders his "hands-off" policy with subordinates. As Yashiro's invitations fail, the yakuza boss finds out his bodyguard has a very personal reason for staying at arm's length.
Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai The clouds gather is directed by Kaori Makita and features animation production by GRIZZLY. The film hits theaters in Japan in February of 2020.
