Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shō: Tamashii is the second film in a planned trilogy. Seiji Kishi (Assassination Classroom, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero) was tapped to serve as chief director on the project, with Daisei Fukuoka (Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School Despair & Future Arcs) helming the project at Studio Gokumi. Makoto Uezu (The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Scum’s Wish) returned to take charge of series composition for the films.

The movie will star:

  • Sumi Washio: Suzuko Mimori
  • Sonoko Nogi: Kana Hanazawa
  • Gin Minowa: Yumiri Hanamori
  • Aki-sensei: Rina Satou

Opening theme song Sakiwafuhana will be performed by Suzuko Mimori. Yumiri Hanamori will handle closing theme song Tamashii.

Yuki Yuna Is A Hero‘s first season aired during the Fall 2014 broadcast season. The series, which was helmed by Seiji Kishi at Studio Gokumi, ran for twelve episodes. Takahiro Sakai provided character designs on the series, while Makoto Uezu took charge of series composition.

PonyCan USA holds the rights to Yuki Yuna Is A Hero in North America. Crunchyroll streamed the show as it aired in Japan. They describe it as:

Yuna Yuki is an ordinary second-year middle school student. She gets up in the morning, gets ready for school, goes to classes, participates in club activities, and has fun with her friends. But there is one extraordinary thing about Yuki — she belongs to the “Brave Hero Club.” What does the Brave Hero Club do? Who is the mysterious being called “Vertex?” Yuki Yuna and her friends’ story takes place in Year 300, Era of the Gods.
