So when she sees her schoolmate, Hananoi-kun, sitting in the snow after a messy, public breakup, she thinks nothing of offering to share her umbrella. But when he asks her out in the middle of her classroom the next day, she can’t help but feel that her life is about to change in a big way …

Kurayukaba and Kuramerukagari will open in Japan on April 12

The staff describes Kurayukaba:

“Yes, Ootsuji Detective Agency” In the purple smoke lies a faint dream, and in the town, rumors swirl like smoke. Now, facing the
strangeness of the “mass disappearance” bewildering society, detective Soutarou confronts it! With no witnesses and unclear
intentions, the identity of the “ominous tracks” that always appear in its footsteps… In search of clues, the detective delves into the
underground realm of the town called “Kuragari.” There, the encounter with the black iron armored train and its commander, Tanne,
will significantly shake the fate of the detective!

Tsukahara (“The Man Traveling with the Brocade Portrait,” “Joseito,” “Hashi no Mukou,” SEKAI NO OWARI rock band’s in-concert anime footage and set design) made his feature-length directorial debut with the anime at Makaria, and he is also credited for the original story and screenplay. Kazunori Minagawa (animation director on Macross Delta, Tokyo Ravens, Yuruyuri, Code Geass: Akito the Exiled) designed the characters.

The staff describes Kuramerukagari:

This is a story that weaves together people and a town. A coal mining town crowded with small-scale excavators, commonly known
as the “Hakoniwa.” In this town that changes daily like a labyrinth, there’s a girl named Kagari who runs a mapmaking business and
a boy named Yuya who dreams of breaking free from the “Hakoniwa.” Eventually, the two, along with the unique residents of the
town, find themselves confronting a conspiracy that shakes the entire town. The fate of the” Hakoniwa” depends on Kagari’s
drawings on the map.

Tsukahara is credited for the original work, screenplay, and director of the film. Ryohgo Narita (Baccano!, Durarara!!) is credited with the original concept. Team OneOne is producing the animation. The film stars Ayane Sakura as Kagari. Kuramerukagari is the opening film for this year’s Niigata International Animation Film Festival on March 15.
