It’s been revealed that AKB48’s Watanabe Mayu will be lending her voice for upcoming anime film “Nerawareta Gakuen“, and will also sing its theme song.
This anime film is based on Mayumura Taku’s Sci-Fi novel, but with the addition of new interpretations. Though “Nerawareta Gakurn” has been adapted as live action dramas/movies several times, this will be the first anime adaptation. The story is set at a junior high school in Kamakura, and depicts mysterious events happening between 14-year-old boys and girls.
Watanabe will voice act for the protagonist ‘Suzuura Natsuki’. Watanabe commented, “Though I’m a little anxious, I would like to enjoy voice acting for this. Since ‘Natsuki’, whom I’m voice acting for, is a very cheerful, cute, and charming girl, I’ll try my best so that people watching the anime will like her!” The details on the theme song sang by Watanabe will be announced later on. It was also revealed that ‘Natsuki’s childhood friend ‘Seki Kenji’ will be voice acted by Honjo Yutaro.
The anime film will be created by Sunrise (“Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon”, Accel World”), directed by Nakamura Ryosuke (“MONSTER”, “Mouryou no Hako”), and its opening theme song will be sung by supercell.
Anime film “Narawareta Gakuen” is set for a release on November 10th.
