The previously announced Break of Dawn (Bokura no Yoake) movie revealed the first teaser trailer and visual, along with October 2022 premiere.
The main cast was also revealed and includes Hana Sugisaki as Yuma and Aoi Yuki as Nanako. Although not officially credited, the trailer appears to be narrated by Kenjiro Tsuda:
Studio Zero-G is animating the movie, under Tomoyuki Kurokawa’s direction. Pomodorosa is credited with the original character design and Takahiko Yoshida with adapting the designs. Yoshida is also the chief animation director on the project. Masaru Yokoyama is composing the music.
The story is based on Tetsuya Imai’s manga of the same name. Imai is best known for being the author of Alice & Zoroku, a manga that received an anime adaptation by studio J.C.Staff in 2017. Bokura no Yoake was serialized in Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine in 2010. The manga has 10 chapters, compiled into 2 volumes.
The story follows Yuma Sawatari, who is an elementary school student. Yuma loves everything that has to do with space, astronomy, and science overall. When his parents buy a robot named Nanako he is disappointed to learn that it’s just a cleaning robot. But, when he tries to talk to Nanako about space something unusual happens. Nanako’s system is gone and replaced by what is apparently a lost alien shop. And these mysterious aliens want Yuma’s help to go back home.
