Masaki Tachibana (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Barakamon, Princess Principal) is directing the film at Telecom Animation Film, and is also penning the script alongside Natsuko Takahashi (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, My Love Story!!, Farewell, My Dear Cramer).
The staff of the anime film of Kana Ozawa’s Blue Thermal -Aonagi Daigaku Taiiku-kai Kōkū-bu- (Aonagi College Sports Festival Aviation Club) manga revealed on Friday that the film has cast Mezamashi TV weathercaster Kayako Abe as a news reporter in the film.
