Yonezu and Igarashi have been friends since Yonezu contributed the official image song for Igarashi’s “Louvre No. 9 — Manga, the 9th Art” museum exhibition in France in 2016.
The film will screen at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in June this year in the festival’s new Contrechamp category.
