New version focuses on ‘several more’ characters in addition to Suzu
The official Twitter account for the anime film adaptation of Fumiyo Kouno’s In This Corner of the World (Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni) manga announced on Thursday that the film will get an extended version with about 30 more minutes of footage. The new version, titled Kono Sekai no (Sara ni Ikutsumono) Katasumi ni (In (Several More) Corners of the This World), will begin screening in Japan in December.
The film’s director Sunao Katabuchi (Black Lagoon, Mai Mai Miracle) planned the title and Kouno approved it. The concept behind the film is to give the perspective of “several more lives” in addition to Suzu’s, so it has a new title to reflect the new theme. It will adapt more scenes from the manga.
The new scenes include Suzu crossing paths with Rin in the fall of 1944 and the winter and spring of 1945. Rin features prominently in the new visual above and the video below. Another new segment will focus on the Makurazaki Typhoon of September 1945, while Suzu is worried for her younger sister Sumi.
That’s the news for today! Thanks for reading and have a good week!
