‘Love, Chunibyo And Other Delusions! - Take On Me’

Japan’s TBS has announced recent deals on anime Love, Chunibyo And Other Delusions! – Take On Me and suspense drama The Crimes That Bind.

The former sold to Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei (Purple Plan) while the latter sold to Hong Kong (Golden Scene) and Taiwan (Movie Cloud).

Directed by Tatsuya Ishihara, Love, Chunibyo And Other Delusions! – Take On Me is the latest in the Love, Chunibyo And Other Delusions! animation series about high-school romance and drama.

Directed by Katsuo Fukuzawa (I’d Rather Be A Shellfish), police drama The Crimes That Bind stars Hiroshi Abe, Nanako Matsushima, Junpei Mizobata and Rena Tanaka.

TBS has also launched sales on Café Funiculi Funicula, a feature based on the popular novel Before The Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi.

Set in a coffeeshop that has been around since “the good old days”, the story is about customers who experience time travel when they sit at a certain table and keep to certain rules.

Ayuko Tsukahara (Reverse) is directing from a screenplay by Satoko Okudera (Summer Wars, Maestro!). Currently in pre-production, the film is set for local release in September.
