The Anime Expo Lite event showed a look at the film last July. But in Izumo, it is named “Kamiarizuki” (“the month of gods”) because of a legend that the myriad gods of Japan meet at Izumo Shrine throughout October. Maaya Sakamoto (Escaflowne’s Hitomi, Fate franchise’s da Vinci and Jeanne) voices Shiro, a one-winged rabbit herald of the gods, while Miyu Irino (Spirited Away’s Haku, Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE’s Syaoran) voices Yato, an oni boy. Both arrive before Kanna and travel with her to Izumo. In the ancient Japanese calendar, the month of October is called “Kannazuki” (“the month of no gods”). Aju Makita (live-action Shino-chan wa Jibun no Namae ga Ienai’s Kayo) voices the protagonist Kanna, who loses her will of chasing after her mother after she dies.
