It will be two days after the theatrical release of the new film Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterun Da. /The Anthem of the Heart which is made by the same production team of the anime. Are we ready to cry again? because we all know how the story ends.

Now, it is the question if the live-action can live up to the spirit and pathos of the anime series managed to evoke despite its short 11 episode cour. Judging from the live-action track record so far, this one has quite a challenge to meet.
