If 2017 hadn’t made you cry like an ocean yet as what Your Name. and A Silent Voice did in 2016, then I’ll gladly introduce a romantic and possibly sad anime film in 2018. The name is I Want to Eat Your Pancreas (Kimi no Suizō o Tabetai) which actually sounds awful but the story will definitely leave you speechless.
The upcoming anime film is based on the award winning novel with the same name by Yoru Sumino and illustrator loundraw. It won several awards already such as “Bestsellers 2016 (Overall) by NIPPAN” – 4th Place, “Bestsellers 2016 (Paperback Fiction) by NIPPAN” – 1st Place, “Bestsellers 2016 (Literary Books) by TOHAN” – 1st Place, “Bookstore Grand Prix 2016” – 2nd Place, and “DA VINCI BOOK OF THE YEAR 2015” – 2nd Place to name a few. The novel has sold over 1.2 million copies as of 2017.
