Theme Songs

Saori Hayami will perform theme song Atarashii Ashita (New Tomorrow). The song will feature lyrics and arrangement by Mariya Takeuchi. The song will receive a CD single, which hits stores on September 19.

Gekijōban Haikara-san ga Tōru Kōhen – Tokyo Dai Roman will hit Japanese theaters on October 19.

The first film, Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern will hit theaters across the United States on June 8.

The Haikara-san: Here Comes Miss Modern films are based on Waki Yamato’s classic manga series of the same name. Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Rurouni Kenshin) directed the first film and wrote the screenplay at Nippon Animation. Terumi Nishii (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable, Penguindrum) is provided character designs for the project.

The film, which opened in Japan on November 11, received the approval of manga author Waki Yamato.

Eleven Arts describes the feature as:

Benio’s aptitude for martial arts, her strong will, and her dedication to her friends is what made her such an icon in the original manga, and inspired a successful run for the TV adaptation. Today, titles like Wonder Woman and Lady Bird and even other anime such as Mary and the Witch’s Flower and Napping Princess have carried the torch with themes of female empowerment. Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern updates a beloved character while joining the roster of new female cinema for today’s world. It is the perfect time for this title.
