Tsurune Movie New Trailer Reveals That Movie Will Release on 18 August 2022

On Tuesday, Kyoto Animation began streaming a teaser trailer for the upcoming film in its Tsurune (Tsurune: Kazemai Kk Kyd-bu) anime franchise. The film is titled Gekijban Tsurune: Hajimari no Issha (Tsurune The Movie: The Beginning Arrow), and it will be released in Japan on August 19.

The video also confirms the cast of the film. Takuya Yamamura will return to Kyoto Animation to direct the film. Yamamura is also writing the script, which is being overseen by Michiko Yokote, the scriptwriter for the television anime. Miku Kadowaki is back as the character designer. Masaru Yokoyama (new Fruits Basket anime, Your Lie in April) has taken over as composer in place of Harumi Fuuki.

Returning cast members Yuto Uemura as Minato Narumiya and Shintar Asanuma as Masaki Takigawa are also confirmed in the video.

In Japan, the television anime debuted in October 2018 on the NHK-General channel. Sentai Filmworks licenced the anime and streamed the series (with an English dub) on Crunchyroll and HIDIVE as it aired in Japan. The anime was released on home video by Sentai Filmworks in January 2020. An original video anime, an unaired 14th episode, was included in the release.

Pony Canyon USA describes the show's story:

The story opens with Minato Narumiya beginning his freshman year at the local Kazemai High School.
Mr. Tommy, advisor to the Japanese archery Club, is keen to recruit Minato, as well as his childhood friends Seiya Takehaya and Ryohei Yamanouchi. Ryohei convinces the reluctant Minato to attend the Club's orientation, where he also meets Kaito Onogi and Nanao Kisaragi.
Singling Minato out, Mr. Tommy introduces him as a rare Japanese archery talent and asks him to demonstrate in front of everyone. However, Minato's arrow fails to hit the mark because he is afflicted by a serious condition… Minato, Seiya, Ryohei, Nanao and Kaito.
Japanese archery brings them together. What will they attain as they struggle through their beautiful, yet “bitter” youth?

The anime is based on Kotoko Ayano's novel of the same name.
