Who doesn’t enjoy a good drink? Or two? Or three? Or… you know what, maybe we should stop before the intervention.
Earlier today, news service Anime! Anime! started streaming a short clip from the first Haikara-san ga Tooru (Here Comes Miss Modern) movie. The 40-second clip shows as the titular Miss Modern partakes of a few drinks.
Yeah, things don’t turn out so hot. Still, you have to appreciate the over-the-top sound effects.
Haikara-san ga Tooru will be a two-film series. The first feature, Gekijōban Haikara-san ga Tōru Zenpen – Benio, Hana no 17-sai (Here Comes Miss Modern The Movie – Benio, Radiant 17 Years Old), debuted in Japanese theaters on November 11. The film received the approval of manga author Waki Yamato.
Sequel movie Gekijōban Haikara-san ga Tōru Kōhen – Tokyo Dai Roman (Big Romance in Tokyo) will open in 2018. Both films will receive a theatrical run in the United States, though specifics on the timing have yet to be disclosed.
