Megumu Maeda draws manga this fall
The August issue of Kodansha‘s Afternoon magazine revealed on Thursday that Funimation and J.C. Staff‘s original anime film coproduction Sing a Bit of Harmony (Ai no Utagoe o Kikasete, literally “Let Me Hear You Sing of Love”) is inspiring a manga adaptation that will debut in the magazine this fall. Megumu Maeda is drawing the manga.
The film will open in Japan in 2021, and is “coming soon” to theaters in the United States and Canada.
Funimation describes the film:
The film tells the story of a new transfer student interested in her surroundings, and a song that brings happiness to her and her classmates.
Yasuhiro Yoshiura (Time of Eve and Patema Inverted) is directing the film. Yoshiura and Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass, Princess Principal, Seven Days War) are co-writing the script. Kanna Kii, the creator of the Umibe no Étranger manga, drew the original character designs. Shuichi Shimamura (Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile) is designing the characters for animation, and is also the chief animation director.
