Given: Umi E Movie Sets Fall 2024 Release Date


The second of the two-part Given anime film sequel is coming to Japanese theaters this fall season. It will have the title Given: Umi E.

Part 1, Given: Hiiragi Mix, premiered in Japan on January 27. The Lerche production was directed by Noriko Hashimoto (Heroines Run the Show: The Unpopular Girl and the Secret Task) with returning character designer Mina Oosawa and returning scriptwriter Yuniko Ayana.

The Given anime is inspired by Natsuki Kizu‘s Shinshokan-published manga, which began serialization in Chéri+ in 2013 and released its ninth and final tankoubon volume in September 2023. A TV anime premiered in 2019, and a one-hour movie was released in 2020.

SuBLime describes the manga as:

Ritsuka Uenoyama is bored with it all—with school, with his basketball club, and even with his one true passion: playing guitar. That is, until the day he finds his favorite hidden napping spot occupied by a strange boy cradling a broken-stringed guitar. At first, Uenoyama is nonplussed by Mafuyu Sato and his slightly odd behavior, but when, on a whim, he asks Mafuyu to sing, the power of that song pierces him to the core.

A spin-off manga, Given 10th mix, started last month.
