The trailer also includes a piece of Suzuko Mimori’s theme for the film, “Sakiwafuhana.”
Yuki Yuna is a Hero -Chapter of Washio Sumi- is based on the illustrated novel series Washio Sumi Is a Hero, set two years prior to Yuki Yuna. After the film trilogy has aired, it will be reworked slightly and rebroadcast as a TV anime.
Friends will premiere March 18, with the other two parts — Spirit and Promise — premiering April 15 and July 8, respectively. Advance ticket sales will include a special-edition Yuki Yuna clear file.
