The movie “HELLO WORLD” was released in Sep. 2019 as a “high-speed sci-fi adolescent love story”. Directed by Itou Tomohiko, who is known for “Sword Art Online”, it is an animated movie brought to life by Kitamura Takumi, Matsuzaka Toori, and Hamabe Minami, whose characters were illustrated by the animator Horiguchi Yukiko (known for the series “K-On!”).
Prior to the release, a part of the commentary video featuring Kitamura Takumi, Hamabe Minami, and Itou Tomohiko, which is included in the BD Special Edition, has been released. During the talk session, Kitamura remarked, “I was able to feel sympathy towards the sincere words of the protagonist. I think that such a high level of sympathy doesn't exist in an actor's life”.
In addition to the commentary, the BD special edition also includes the spin-off anime trilogy “ANOTHER WORLD”, which was created by the same cast and staff involved in the movie production, and a special booklet containing a novel written by Nozaki Mado (scriptwriter of the movie).
