Fantasia is proud to share with its audience a special World Premiere teaser of the forthcoming MBS/TBS anime series DEIJI MEETS GIRL, directed by Ushio Tazawa. It’s set in summertime Okinawa, at the Higa family’s hotel, where Maise’s days pass uneventfully – until the arrival of Ichiro Suzuki, a visitor from Tokyo. Suddenly, fish are swimming in thin air, and a banyan tree has burst through the ceiling!
A mysterious teen fantasy told over the course of a dozen 90-second episodes, DEIJI MEETS GIRL is directed by Ushio Tazawa, a key contributor to numerous Makoto Shinkai films (including YOUR NAME and THE PLACE PROMISED IN OUR EARLY DAYS) and more (HEROIC LEGEND OF ARSLAN, TRAVELING DARU).
DEIJI MEETS GIRL will premiere in October in the SUPER ANIMEISM slot on Japan’s MBS/TBS network. Before that, however, the audience for Fantasia’s Closing Film of 2021, Takashi Miike’s THE GREAT YOKAI WAR – GUARDIANS, screening at Montreal’s Cinéma Impérial, will be treated to a special DEIJI MEETS GIRL teaser film, the first audience in the world to discover it.
The Fantasia Film Festival takes place in person and online from August 5 – August 25
