From the people that brought us ‘Weathering With You’ and ‘Your Name’—Pioneer films now bring us the newest anime film coming to the PH, ‘Hello World’!
What’s that? A new anime film? Yep! They’re the same people that brought us hits like ‘Weathering With You’ and ‘Your Name’. And now Pioneer Films, one of the biggest independent film distributors in the Philippines, brings us ‘Hello World’. This new anime film is a “sci-fi youth love-story,” and is directed by Tomohiko Ito. ‘Hello World’ is coming to the PH on October 31. Interested? You can watch the trailer right here:
‘Hello World’ follows the story of Naomi Katagaki, a high-school boy in Kyoto who lives in the year 2027. Who one day meets a man who claims to be him from 10 years into the future! And he says he’s gone back in time to save the life of Naomi’s classmate, Sakai. Who he also reveals Naomi will date. Talk about an arranged date? So they join together to try and change the course of events and save Sakai’s life. Sounds pretty exciting to us! Another thing to get excited about this film is that it was directed by:
True anime fans would know his work on ‘Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale’, where he was the Director, but he also worked on the screenplay and storyboard. As well as his work on the 2006 anime film, ‘The Girl Who Leapt Through Time’. Which in my opinion should be deemed a classic. So if his previous works are any indication as to what we can expect from ‘Hello World’, then this film is something anime fans can look out for! Especially since the anime film is set in Kyoto, Japan. Where there are a lot of scenic locations like the Fushimi Inari Taisa Shrine and the Kyoto Imperial Shrine. So we can definitely expect to see a lot of beautiful scenes in ‘Hello World’.
So remember that ‘Hello World’ is coming to the PH on October 31st! And make sure to check local cinemas near you to catch a screening.
