New story set between middle school, high school stories
The official website for Eiga Sayonara Watashi no Cramer First Touch, the anime film of Naoshi Arakawa‘s Farewell, My Dear Cramer (Sayonara Watashi no Cramer) manga, revealed on Monday that Arakawa will pen a new “volume 0” of the manga that participating theaters will give out as a bonus to theatergoers for the film while supplies last. The new volume will feature a story that takes place between the middle school Sayonara, Football manga (which is the basis for the film) and the high school Farewell, My Dear Cramer manga (the basis for the television anime).
The staff initially planned to release the film on April 1. However, the staff delayed the film due to “various circumstances” to June 11, and expressed hopes of a resolution to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
<!–Eiga Sayonara Watashi no Cramer First Touch, the film part of the project, will premiere in early summer, delayed from its originally planned April 1 opening. The anime’s website noted that the delay was due to “various circumstances,” but expressed hopes of a resolution to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
–>The film’s story adapts the Sayonara, Football prequel manga, which follows Nozomi in junior high school.
Seiki Takuno (Boarding School Juliet, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) is directing the TV series and film at LIDEN FILMS, and Natsuko Takahashi (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Cutie Honey Universe) is writing the script. Eriko Itō (Hamatora, Ane Log) is designing the characters, and Masaru Yokoyama (Your Lie in April, Fruits Basket) is composing the music. Aika Kobayashi performs the opening theme song “Ambitious Goal.”
With no soccer accomplishments to speak of during the entirety of Sumire Suo’s junior high school years, the young wing gets an odd offer. Suo’s main rival, Midori Soshizaki, invites her to join up on the same team in high school, with a promise that she’ll never let Suo “play alone.” It’s an earnest offer, but the question is whether Suo will take her up on it. Thus the curtain opens on a story that collects an enormous cast of individual soccer-playing personalities!
Arakawa launched the manga in May 2016.
