The second annual animation festival is a collaboration between the Annency International Animation Film Festival, GKIDS, and Variety, and will feature the film in what the festival describes as a “highly selective, annual showcase of the best new works of animation from around the world.” The heartwarming film, based on Yoru Sumino’s award winning novel, premiered in Japan earlier this month and opened at #10 in the box office, with over 100 million yen grossed in its first two days in theaters. Soon after the film premiered, Japan’s largest cinema community site, Pia Eiga Seikatsu, gave the film a 92.6% approval rating, ranking it at number one in their opening day movie satisfaction charts. The film is produced by Studio VOLN (USHIO & TORA), with Shinichiro Ushijima (ONE PUNCH MAN, ALL OUT!!) making his directorial debut. The unnamed male lead, “me,” is voiced by popular actor and 72nd Mainichi Film Awards Best New Actor winner, Mahiro Takasugi; voice actress Lynn (HIGH SCHOOL FLEET, A PLACE FURTHER THAN THE UNIVERSE) lends her talents to the female lead, Sakura. Tickets are now on sale at In a recent review of the film, Anime News Network writes that “this film will definitely get you if you`re a sucker for tearjerkers... there is some amazing crying animation in this film, and the voice acting in those parts is just sublime. Even watching those scenes out of context would probably give me a visceral reaction. It`s especially impressive that this film made me feel things when this is my third time experiencing the story. For that alone, I want to eat your pancreas is worth recommending.”
