Summer Ghost anime by illustrator Loundraw arrives in the USA

Acclaimed Japanese illustrator Loundraw debuts the medium-length film Summer Ghost whose rights have already been acquired by the American distributor GKIDS.
The story tells of a local urban legend who claims that lighting fireworks at an abandoned airport will call the "summer ghost" a spirit that can answer any question. Three troubled teens, Tomoya, Aoi and Ryo, don't know each other yet, but each has their own reasons for showing up in the same place one day. When a spark ignites, a ghost named Ayane appears, revealing that she is only visible to those "who are about to touch their death". The three boys return home but one of them, Tomoya begins visiting the airport alone obsessed with the mystery surrounding Ayane and the purpose of her appearances.

A 45-minute medium-length film animated by the young Flat Studio (opened in 2019) which debuted in Japan in November 2021, to which is now also added a documentary on its production and further special contents.
