Kyohei Ishiguro (Your Lie in April)-directed original film will open in Japan on May 15, 2020
With a new teaser visual, the official website for the upcoming original anime film Cider no You ni Kotoba ga Wakiagaru (Words are boiling up like cider) announced its two main voice cast today: 14-year-old kabuki actor Somegoro Ichikawa VIII as the protagonist boy Cherry and 22-year-old actress Hana Sugisaki as the main heroine Smile.
This is the first time that Ichikawa, who made his kabulki actor debut in 2009 when he was 4, has voiced an anime character, while Sgugisaki previously played Sayaka in When Marnie Was There in 2014 and the protagonist Mary in Mary and the Witch's Flower in 2017.
The story of the "a boy meets a girl" romance film focuses on Cherry, a haiku-loving boy who is not good at communication with others, and Smile, a girl who always wears a mask to hide the braces on her front tooth. They accidentally meet in a shopping mall and start deepening their relationship via SNS with words and music.
The film is produced as the tenth-anniversary project for Victor Entertainment's anime music label FlyingDog. Kyohei Ishiguro (Your Lie in April) is attached to direct on a screenplay by Dai Sato (Mysterious Joker). Yukiko Aikei (Aikatsu Star!) serves as character designer, Signal.MD and Sublimation co-work on anime production.
The anime film Cider no You ni Kotoba ga Wakiagaru is set to be released in Japan on May 15, 2020.
