Tatsuki Fujimoto's story fleshes out a meta-narrative with its co-protagonists' friendship built around their shared love of drawing manga. As the small-town girls bridge the gap with their mutual affinity for this hobby, their apparently distinct personalities find a common ground fuelled by the warmth of friendship and art.

Steering through a turbulent landscape of personal hardships and artistic challenges, Ayumu Fujino and Kyomoto's heart-touching saga threads a journey unlike another.

The English-translated version of the Look Back manga is available on VIZ Media. Fujimoto's 142-page one-shot was originally launched in July 2021 on Shonen Jump+.

An accompanying key art visual/poster also came out with today's trailer release. Kiyoshi Sameshima serves as the art director for the film with Studio Durian backing the project's production.

Yumi Kawai will voice the “overly confident” Fujino, and Mizuki Yoshida will be the platonic companion as the “shut-in” Kyomoto.

The Look Back film adaptation's news first rolled out in March. Despite Fujimoto's magnum opus - Chainsaw Man - and its corresponding movie chapter being animated by Studio Mappa, his short story's destiny is tied to Studio Durian.
