From the producer of ‘Your Name,’ another tale of star-crossed teenage lovers with a sci-fi fantasy twist to screen in English-dub and the original Japanese in special three-day event.
GKIDS and Fathom Events are teaming up once again to bring anime feature Fireworks to U.S. theaters in a special three-day event July 3, 5, & 7, and to help celebrate AWN has three sets of tickets to give away to three lucky winners!
Producer Genki Kawamura follows up his mega-hit Your Name with another tale of star-crossed teenage lovers with a sci-fi fantasy twist. Fireworks tells a simple story of adolescent longing that taps deep wells of emotion. It is tale of youthful wistfulness, missed opportunities and long-ago dreams, of the urgency of young lovers, and the desire to create a separate universe, a magic place outside of time, where they can be together:
Shy Norimichi and fast-talking Yusuke are goo-goo-eyed over the same elusive classmate, Nazuna. But Nazuna, unhappy over her mother’s decision to remarry and leave their countryside town, plans to run away and has secretly chosen Norimichi to accompany her.
When things don’t go as planned, Norimichi discovers that a glowing multi-color ball found in the sea has the power to reset the clock and give them a second chance to be together. But each reset adds new complications and takes them farther and farther away from the real world -- until they risk losing sight of reality altogether.
With screenings in approximately 550 theaters, Fireworks will be showing in both the new English dub version of the film as well as the original Japanese version.
