The film revolves around the city of Izumo, and its sanctuary, Izumo-taisha. According to Japanese folklore, every October, deities from all over Japan gather to perform a ceremony – so it will be interesting to see how that translates into this film!
The main character of the anime is a girl called Kanna. She used to be a runner, but after the death of her mother, loses her passion. One day she comes across a rabbit named Shiro, who is a Messenger of the Gods, and an ogre boy named Yasha. They then invite her to Izumo and the story begins.
The movie will be directed by Takana Shirai, and the animation producer is Tetsuro Satomi, who is responsible for Batman Ninja.
There’s currently a crowfunding campaign ongoing for the movie, which is the third the movie has had since its announcement.
