A promotional video and key visual have been released for the upcoming prequel film series for Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru (Yuki Yuna is a Hero)! The video specifically covers the first film in the Yuuki Yuuna -Washio Sumi no Sho- trilogy. The films were previously announced earlier last year.
MyAnimeList describes the synopsis of the film series below:
“In the year 298 from the era of the gods, elementary school girls Sumi Washio, Sonoko Nogi, and Gin Minowa are tasked with an important mission. They are to become heroes and fight Vertex, a mysterious enemy that is attacking Shinju-sama, the god tree that protects Shikoku, the only area in the world that is still habitable. What they don’t know, is that this fight will cost them more than they could have ever imagined.”
Film 1 will open in theaters on March 18, and season 2 of Yuuki Yuuna will begin in October 2017.
The video and visual are after the break!
