The upcoming Odd Taxi: In The Woods movie, which is set to premiere on April 1, has received a new trailer and visual.
The movie will receive a theatrical release in Japan and will be streamed on Crunchyroll as well. Odd Taxi: In The Woods is described as offering a new take on the scenario of the Spring 2021 Odd Taxi series, and Famitsu has reported that the movie will also depict events that take place after the series’ finale.
Crunchyroll describes the series as:
This town should look familiar, but suddenly, it’s not. The taxi driver Odokawa lives a very mundane life. He has no family, doesn’t really hang out with others, and he’s an oddball who is narrow-minded and doesn’t talk much. The only people he can call his friends are his doctor, Gouriki and his classmate from high school, Kakibana. All of his patrons seem to be slightly odd themselves. The college student who wants to be noticed online, Kabasawa. A nurse with secrets, Shirakawa. A comedy duo, the Homosapiens… All these mundane conversations somehow lead to a girl who’s gone missing.
Like the series, the staff includes Mugi Kinoshita as director, Norio Nitta as assistant director, Kazuya Konomoto as scriptwriter, Kinoshita and Hiromi Nakayama as character designers, Kenji Katou as art director, Tatsue Oozeki as color designer, Miyabi Amada as photography director, and PUNPEE VaVa OMSB as music composer. P.I.C.S. and OLM are the animation production companies.
The cast of the series, including Natsuki Hanae as taxi-driving protagonist Hiroshi Odokawa, are also reprising their roles for Odd Taxi: In The Woods.
