After you guys heartlessly ignored the TV spot for the upcoming anime Summer Wars I posted the day before yesterday, maybe you’re interested in this second, almost two minutes long trailer. I don’t have a friggin’ clue what’s happening after that strange meteor hits the countryside (does anybody here speak Japanese?), but I expected nothing but great things from Mamoru Hosoda and Satoko Okudera and pray for an early domestic release.
When timid eleventh-grader and math genius Kenji Koiso (Ryunosuke Kamiki) is asked by older student and secret crush Natsuki (Nanami Sakuraba) to come with her to her family’s Nagano home for a summer job, he agrees without hesitation. Natsuki’s family, the Jinnouchi clan, dates back to the Muromachi era (1336 to 1573), and they’ve all come together to celebrate the 90th birthday of the spunky matriarch of the family, Sakae. That’s when Kenji discovers his “summer job” is to pretend to be Natsuki’s fiance and dance with her at the birthday celebration. As Kenji attempts to keep up with Natsuki’s act around her family, he receives a strange math problem on his cell phone which, being a math genius, he can’t resist solving. As it turns out, the solution to the mysterious equation causes a bizarre parallel world to collide with Earth, and it’s up to Kenji and his new fake family to put reality back in order.
