The release date of “BLUE GIANT,” a theatrical animation of jazz manga by Shinichi Ishizuka, has been decided on February 17, 2023, and the teaser visual has been released. In addition, the faces of the central staff have been announced.

The original manga is a famous work that has exceeded the cumulative total of 8.4 million copies in the series, and Dai Miyamoto (Miyamotodai), who started saxophone after being touched by jazz, aspired to be the best jazz player in the world and started from Sendai after graduating from high school. Go to Tokyo. He describes the days when he meets friends of the same generation and devotes himself to playing together. The serialization started in 2013 with “Big Comic” (published by Shogakukan), the second part, “BLUE GIANT SUPREME,” has been serialized since 2016, and the third part, “BLUE GIANT EXPLORER,” has been serialized since 20.

The teaser visual depicts a prominent figure immersing himself in saxophone performance in front of the sea with a night view reminiscent of Tokyo on the opposite bank.

The director is Yuzuru Tachikawa, who worked on “Mob Psycho 100” and “Detective Conan Zero Enforcer for the Movie.” NUMBER 8, who has created the original series with Mr. Ishizuka, is in charge. Animation production will be done by NUT, who teamed up with director Tachikawa on “decadence.” Below are the comments from the staff.

The main story is about the growth of young people desperately facing jazz, but we are aiming for a movie that even people who have never heard jazz can enjoy, not a movie with a high threshold limited to jazz lovers. I think that what is at the root of the original “BLUE GIANT” is a more universal human “attractive way of life.”

Many attractive characters can be uncool or muddy. I would like you to experience the story of the hero “Dai,” who makes a sound as if he burns his life with all his might and his friends who have daily conflicts.

I hope it will be a movie that can answer the question, “I want to do something, but I don’t know what to do.”

Anyway, I wrote the script with the goal of “a movie that goes beyond the original.” Readers, from unread small children to adults, come to the cinema. Aiming for a story that everyone will say “the best …!”, We had countless meetings, and I think we were finally able to do that.

From the beginning of the series, I told Mr. Ishizuka that “visualization is undesired.” Still, director Tachikawa Yuzuru, the production team, the music team, and the best team gathered to make the best movie. Give me. I was already crying just for storyboards and music. Please expect by all means.
