The staff for the new sequel anime film project based on Hajime Kamoshida‘s Seishun Buta Yarō light novel series announced that the first film, Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister Venturing Out, will open in Japanese theaters this summer.
The cast also announced the news in a video:
The first batch of MoviTicke Cards for the film will go on sale on February 18 with bonus mini shikishi-style illustration cards drawn by director Sōichi Masui and character designer Satomi Tamura:
On that same day, the main Animate store branch in Tokyo’s Akihabara district will distribute a postcard-sized Valentine illustration card with a QR code. The code links to a special voice message by Mai Sakurajima (as voiced by Asami Seto).
The sequel anime project adapts the eighth and ninth novels in the franchise: Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister Venturing Out and Rascal Does Not Dream of a Knapsack Kid.
Sōichi Masui is returning to direct the project at CloverWorks. Masahiro Yokotani is also back for composition and scripts, and Satomi Tamura is returning as the character designer.
