After the amazing preview video we posted last week, we now have the main poster of the upcoming movie adaptation of Matcha Hazuki’s One Week Friends!
The poster features an image of Kaori Fujimiya (Haruna Kawaguchi) and Yuki Hase (Kento Yamazaki) looking into each other’s eyes. The poster, flyers and a pop-up stand which plays the theme song Kanade for One Week Friends by Sukima Switch will be placed at selected theatres all around Japan. If you are in Japan and you feel like taking part in a contest, you can enter a special prize lottery by sending a Tweet-picture of you at the pop-up stand. The campaign will launch on December 15.
The novelisation of One Week Friends will be published prior to the movie’s release on January 21, 2017.
One Week Friends is the story of Kaori Fujimiya, a girl who has a memory disorder and loses all memories of her friends each week, and of Yuki Hase, a boy who wants to become her friend. The movie, directed by Shosuke Murakami will be released on February 18, 2017.
