Doesn’t it seem like high school is nothing but a 4 year musical production for teenagers? Well Funimation is banking on bringing singing and dancing back to the halls of high school in their new anime Sing a Bit of Harmony. The upcoming anime will have a interesting protagonist because this will be a high school girl who is actually an artificial intelligence.
To learn more about Sing a Bit of Harmony, let’s hear what Funimation has to say about it.
Funimation’s Sing a Bit of Harmony Press Release
Funimation, the market leader in anime serving fans worldwide, revealed the latest trailer for the upcoming anime film and co-production, Sing a Bit of Harmony. The film, which will be released in Japan on October 29, is coming in early 2022 to theaters in the United States, Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Sing a Bit of Harmony recently won Best Animated Film at the New York City Film and Television Festival.
Sing a Bit of Harmony tells the story of the beautiful and mysterious Shion (Tao Tsuchiya) who transfers to Keibu High School where she quickly becomes popular for her open-hearted personality and exceptional athletic talent… but she turns out to be an AI (artificial intelligence) in the testing phase!
Shion’s goal is to bring chronic loner Satomi (Haruka Fukuhara) “happiness.” But her strategy is something no human would expect: she serenades Satomi in the middle of the classroom. After finding out that Shion is an AI, Satomi and her childhood friend, engineering geek Toma (Asuka Kudo), steadily warm up to the new student. Along with the popular and attractive Gotchan (Kazuyuki Okitsu), the strong-willed Aya (Mikako Komatsu), and judo club member “Thunder” (Satoshi Hino), they become more and more moved by Shion’s singing voice and earnestness even as her antics bewilder them.
But what Shion does for Satomi’s sake ends up involving them all in some serious pandemonium… Get ready for the heartwarming story of a not quite market-ready AI and her classmates!
Sing a Bit of Harmony is written and directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura, who took home the “Excellence Award” at the Japan Media Arts Film Festival’s animation division for his work on Patema Inverted: Beginning of the Day, and the “Best Anime Award” at the Tokyo International Anime Fair’s OVA division for Time of Eve.
