One day before its theatrical release in Japan, the official website for the anime film Josee to Tora to Sakana-tachi / Josee, the Tiger and the Fish posted a clip to introduce its first five-minutes.
The video, produced by animation studio Bones (My Hero Academia), starts with a beautiful ocean scene. It depicts the protagonist Tsuneo Suzukawa's daily life as a part-time worker, and continues to the encounter scene where the main heroine Jose, in a wheelchair, comes screaming down the hill at a high speed on his way home. You can also listen to the OP theme song composed by the film's soundtrack composer Evan Call and performed by singer-songwriter Ai Ichikawa.
