The team at Studio Colorido released a new music video and visual to promote the latest new Netflix anime film Drifting Home.
The team behind A Whisker Away, Burn the Witch and Star Wars: Visions (Tatooine Rhapsody) has brought an all-new feature film to Netflix called Drifting Home. While it will drop next week, some new promotional visuals and trailers have revealed more details about the movie. During this week, the team unveiled the music video for the theme song of the film, which was called “”Kieteshimai Sō Desu” (It Seems I’m Fading Away) by Zutto Mayonaka de Iinoni (ZUTOMAYO).
ZUTOMAYO posted a short clip of the music video on their Twitter shortly after the release. Unfortunately, the full version of the music video was not available to view in Belarus, Canada, the Russian Federation, and the United States. Even though we could not see the full video, the visuals and song from this teaser appeared to be emotionally powerful.
Here was the description of the upcoming Netflix anime film:
“Sixth-graders Kosuke and Natsume grew up in the same apartment building as childhood friends. During summer break, while playing in the apartment building that is set to be demolished, they find themselves caught in a strange phenomenon. All they can see around them is a vast sea. Will Kosuke and the others make it back to their world? A journey of farewells in summer has just begun.”
Drifting Home announced their cast list. Much of the cast were involved in various Sword Art Online projects:
- Mutsumi Tamura as Kōsuke Kumagaya
- Asami Seto as Natsume Tonai
- Ayumu Murase as Noppo
- Daiki Yamashita as Yuzuru Tachibana
- Yumiko Kobayashi as Taishi Koiwai
- Inori Minase as Reina Haba
- Kana Hanazawa as Juri Andō
ZUOTMAYO also announced they would be doing the Drifting Home“insert” song, “Natsugare” (Summer Slump) in addition to the theme song. The staff included Hiroyasu Ishida—who directed and served as the script writer with Hayashi Mori (Cells at Work! Code Black) and Minaka Sakamoto. Akihiro Nagae (Fastening Days) designed the characters, and Fumi Katō as the assistant character designer. The music composition had Umitarō Abe slated for the anime.
Drifting Home will be dropping on Netflix on September 16. On the same day, it was already announced the film would be in theatres across Japan. It could be another emotionally-moving anime film, as recent anime films have been growing in popularity amongst the mainstream media, such as Belle, Bubble and Your Name.
