2nd trailer and release date for the new Mari Okada and Mappa's anime

We presented the new anime from Mappa studios about two years ago [news]. Finally comes a new trailer and the release date in Japanese theaters.
The original title is Alice to Therese no Maboroshi Kojo (Alice and Therese's Illusory Factory), new film written and directed by acclaimed author Mari Okada who describes the work as a "fantasy story about first love".

Main character is the third-year middle school student Masamune, who lives in a town where time has stopped because a sudden explosion at a steelworks factory has sealed off all exits to the town. In order to hopefully one day return to normal, the residents of the town are forbidden from changing, and they live out their gloomy everyday lives. Masamune's enigmatic classmate Atsumi leads him one day to the fifth blast furnace of the steelworks factory, and there they meet a girl who is wild like a wolf and who cannot talk. The meeting of Masamune and these two girls upsets the balance of the world. The unstoppable "love impulse" of the boys and girls who are tired of their everyday lives begins to destroy the world.

Assistant director is Tadashi Hiramatsu, Yuriko Ishii is the author of the character design and head animator, while Kazuki Higashiji is artistic director and Masaru Yokoyama author of the music.

The film is scheduled to be released domestically on September 15, while the novel will be published on June 13 edited by Kadokawa Bunko.
