Vertical released the novel in English in October 2017. Kodansha USA Publishing Describes the story:
Japanese Animation – World-acclaimed, family-friendly theatrical features are the exception rather than the rule for a TV-oriented industry that has been pushed into late-night slots in the age of dispersed audiences. When only three out of fifty titles make a profit, topping the charts is hardly an overly ambitious goal.
However, as three women, a producer, director, and animator, live in a company famous for its killer schedules, frustrating compromises, and corrupt men, moments of upsurge against all odds – and how – emerge. More than just a window into an entertaining place, here’s a great poem for action.
The film will open on May 20.
