Bokura no Yoake is a manga that was serialized in 2011. It is now the year 2022. The story takes place a little further into the future than the present. There are flying robots and so on.
This work is now being made into an animated feature film. A lot of people have come up with great ideas, and we are in the process of creating more and more works. The future is amazing and I am very excited. I hope you will be excited too.
