The production of the movie of "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime" has been decided. The teaser visual, teaser video, and comments from the original author have been released. "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime" is based on the web novel by Fuse that has exceeded 800 million PV on the novel publishing website "Shousetsuka ni Narou". It is an "another world reincarnation entertainment" about the main protagonist, who got reincarnated as a slime in another world, increasing his fellows with his knowledge and bravery while utilizing the skills that he cultivated. Up until now, the season 1 of the TV anime was broadcast in October 2018, and the season 2 and spinoff anime "TenSura Diary" were broadcast over the span of 9 months from January 2021 to September 2021. This time, the production of the movie was announced together with the release of the teaser visual and teaser video. "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Movie" is scheduled to be released in fall 2022. At the same time, the first online exhibition of "TenSura" will be held in winter 2021. Detailed information can be found on the designated webpage. ＜Below are the full comments＞ Fuse (Original Creator of the Light Novel "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime") I can't believe that this work that I wrote as an interest will get a movie adaptation! I am still a bit bewildered as this is unrealistic to me as it was beyond my dream. As I am unsure how it will turn out, let's look forward to it together!! Kawakami Taiki (Manga Artist of "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime") When I heard about the movie, I can't stop my excitement as there are still an unknown side of TenSura. Do look forward to the activities of Rimuru and the others, who will be more aggressive than usual that is unique to the movie! Mitz Vah (Original Character Designer of the Light Novel "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime") The movie adaptation is decided...! I believe this was realized due to the support of everyone just like how Rimuru is supporting Tempest. I hope I can make this a wonderful movie in gratitude with everyone.

On September 15, 2021, an IMAX screening event was held to announce the completion of the movie "Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night" (to be screened on October 30, 2021). Tomatsu Haruka, who plays Asuna, and Matsuoka Yoshitsugu, who plays Kirito, took the stage, and LiSA, who is in charge of the theme song that was performed for the first time along with the full-length screening, made a surprise video appearance for the audience. ■Tomatsu Haruka and Matsuoka Yoshitsugu revealed their feelings for Asuna and Kirito. Tomatsu, who played Asuna in this work for the first time in a long time, said, "I'm honestly very happy to be able to play Asuna at that time again, and I've been working with the SAO series for about 10 years, so it's like a miracle that I've been able to be involved for so many years. And I've realized once again that this series is loved by so many people," she smiled. Matsuoka, who played Kirito, said, "I put a lot of energy into my performance. I can't say enough about how impressed I was with how the Aincrad arc from back then turned out when it was recreated with today's technology. I’m speechless," he seemed to be full of emotion. He continued, "Some scenes brought me back some memories, and some stories were originally made. So there is the original story, but it is Progressive that ‘no one has ever seen’. Some scenes are connected from the TV series, and what Asuna was doing at that time, which is what you wanted to know, is condensed in this film. There's a lot of Sword Art in there that you don't know!," he praised with a catchphrase. Regarding the "SAO" series that has been running for about 10 years, Tomatsu said, "There are 97 episodes in the SAO series. I've been involved in various SAO series for the past 10 years, and I've continued to act in various contents, so I've never had a break in my career. It is fairly rare during my life as a voice actress, and I feel very fortunate," she revealed and, "It’s like it is my normal life being with Asuna…… I can't imagine my life without her. She lives in my heart like I can't live without you (Asuna)!," she shared her special feelings for the film. Matsuoka also said, "I've spent half of my life as a voice actor with Kirito. I don't have to think about how he was like when (the work as Kirito) comes. I can switch to Kirito," he talked about how big this series is. ■What are the highlights of this work? "There are scenes where you’ll be like, 'You were there…?'" As for the highlights of the film, Tomatsu said, "Scenes and lines from the TV series appear in a different direction, and when you see it from Asuna's point of view, you can understand why things happened the way they did, and enjoy the Aincrad arc from a different perspective. The story starts from Asuna's point of view before she started SAO, so I think it will be easy to relate to." Matsuoka said, "Tomatsu-san has already told us everything, so... (lol). I'll tell you the highlights from a different perspective. There are scenes where you’ll be like, 'You were there…?'" (lol) Let me give you a hint: the Alicization arc," he put our hopes so high that we can’t wait for its release. ■LiSA's theme song! "Asuna wasn't strong from the beginning" At the event, it was announced that LiSA's song "Yuke" would be the theme song, and as a complete surprise to the audience, LiSA appeared in a video for the stage greeting. LiSA said, "The main character of this work is Asuna, and behind the strong and cool figure we've seen so far, Asuna wasn't strong from the beginning. It is a work that touches on the true strength of Asuna. I wrote the song "Yuke" with the hope of delivering a cheering song like the strong and supple Asuna." Looking back on the time when she first got involved in the SAO series, she commented, "The first time I got involved in SAO was in the summer of 2012, when the TV anime "Aincrad" arc was released. Nine years have passed since then, and I'm looking forward to the start of the story that leads up to that. I hope you will enjoy the first story and the theme song "Yuke" that will lead us to SAO, which we have loved together."
From the movie "Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night" (to be screened on October 30, 2021), the main trailer, which takes us to the origin of the series and reveals the relationship between Asuna and Mito, has been released. In addition, the theme song will be "Ike", sung and written by LiSA and composed by Ayase, who is also a member of YOASOBI. The movie "Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night" is a film of the new "Aincrad Arc" as seen through the eyes of Asuna by the original author, Kawahara Reki. Yuki Asuna, a third-year junior high school student who has never played online games, is one day, trapped in the world of "Sword Art Online", the world's first VRMMORPG, when she accidentally wears "Nerve Gear". Without knowing the rules of the world, she sets out to conquer the steel floating castle, "Aincrad", and the lone swordsman, Kirito, appears before her as she survives the world of death. The main trailer released this time shows Yuki Asuka, a student studying hard for her entrance exam, is asked by her game-loving classmate, Tozawa Misumi, "Wanna play with me?", then she logs into the world of "SAO" as "Asuna". Then, the game master declares that "SAO" is a death game where you can't log out and risk your life, and Mito (Misumi) firmly decides that she will never let Asuna die, but...... The second half of the trailer shows the scenes where Asuna and Mito fight hard against monsters, and Kirito and Asuna encounter, with the theme song "Ike" sung and written by LiSA, who is known for her music in the "SAO" series, and composed by Ayase, who is also known as the composer of YOASOBI.
