Based on a popular Pixiv web comic by Koromo about a male polar bear falling in love with a male seal, Shochiku has published the Koi Suru Shirokuma short-form theatrical anime to their official Youtube channel.
The Koi Suru Shirokuma theatrical short is directed by Kazuya Ichikawa and features animation by Gathering. It features the voice talents of Yūichirō Umehara as Shirokuma-san, a lonely and amorous polar bear, and Natsuki Hanae as Azarashi-kun, a seal who initially mistakes Shirokuma-san's romantic advances as signs of hunger.
The Koi Suru Shirokuma short will screen as part of the pre-show trailer reels in some 50 theaters throughout Japan beginning on March 04, 2017.
