The official website for the television anime of Asato Mizu's Aharen-san wa Hakarenai (Aharen Is Indecipherable) romantic comedy manga series posted two more cast members and the first key visual on Saturday.

The new cast members are:

M.A.O as Mitsuki Ōshiro (left in image below), Aharen's childhood friend

Kana Hanazawa as Ms. Tōharu (right), the classic literature teacher at Aharen's school

As previously announced, Inori Minase will play the title character Reina Aharen, and Takuma Terashima will play Raidō.

The teen romantic comedy follows the "indecipherable" daily life of short, quiet Reina Aharen and Raidō who sits next to her in class. Aharen is not so good at gauging the distance between people (or personal boundaries), and Raidō initially sensed some distance between the two of them. Then one day, when Raidō picked up the eraser that Aharen had dropped, the distance between them suddenly became uncomfortably close.

From "way too distant" to "way too close" ... Aharen is simply unpredictable.

Yasutaka Yamamoto (Servant × ServiceValkyria Chronicles) is serving as chief director, and Tomoe Makino (Woodpecker Detective's Office) is directing the anime at Felix FilmTakao Yoshioka (High School DxDI'm Standing on 1,000,000 Lives.SekireiWATAMOTE) is in charge of the series scripts, and Yūko Yahiro (Diabolik LoversKaguya-sama: Love is WarKatana Maidens: Toji no Miko) is designing the characters. Satoru Kousaki (BEASTARSLucky StarOreimo) and monaca (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFUServant × ServiceWagnaria!!) are composing the music. The Chinese streaming service bilibili is presenting the project.

The anime will premiere in April 2022.

The series inspired a 12-episode television anime in 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Pony Canyon licensed and released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America in 2015, with distribution by Right Stuf, Inc.

The website also posted details on the goods that theaters will offer, including (from top left to bottom right in the image below) a pamphlet, three acrylic mascots, six randomly distributed trading SD acrylic charms, two B2-size tapestries, four A4-size clear file folders, a B4-size illustration card, a set of six hologram postcards, three plush Potet Mascots, beta tester guidebook-style memo pad, three metal weapon charms, a set of two metal bookmarks, tote bag, book cover, and Asuna's cape brooch:

Funimation had announced in September that it would present the film in both standard and IMAX theaters in the United States and Canada on December 3 and in Australia and New Zealand on December 9. The movie will also screen soon in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Latin America. Tickets go on sale in the U.S. and Canada on November 5 and in Australia and New Zealand on November 9.

Odex will screen the film in Southeast Asia this year.

Bryce Papenbrook and Cherami Leigh will reprise their roles as Kirito and Asuna, respectively, in the dub.

Funimation describes the film:

This is a tale of the time before “Lightning Flash” and “The Black Swordsman” were known by those names…

The day that she happened to don the NerveGear, Asuna Yuuki was a third-year middle school student who'd never even touched an online game before. On November 6, 2022, the world's first VRMMORPG, Sword Art Online, is officially launched. But the players, still euphoric over having logged in, suddenly find themselves trapped inside the game when the Game Master deprives them of any way to log out.

The Game Master then gives them this warning “This may be a game, but it's not something you play.” If a player dies in-game, they die in the real world.

Hearing this, all of the players panic, and pandemonium reigns. One of those players is Asuna, but despite not yet knowing the rules of this world, she sets off to conquer the floating iron castle, Aincrad, whose peak is too high to be seen. As the days go by in this world where death is never very far away, she has a fateful encounter. And then, a parting…

Though she's at the mercy of the reality before her eyes, Asuna fights on with all her might until someone appears before her: the aloof swordsman, Kirito…

The film will open in Japan on October 30 in standard and IMAX theaters.

The film got an advance IMAX screening on September 15 at the T-Joy PRINCE Shinagawa theater in Tokyo.

Ayako Kohno (unit director on Black Butler: Book of the AtlanticHigh School FleetThe Seven Deadly Sins the Movie: Prisoners of the Sky) directed the film at A-1 Pictures, and Kento Toya (Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of UnderworldThe Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments) designied the characters. Yasuyuki Kai served as action director, and Yuki Kajiura returned to compose the music.

Also returning are Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Kirito and Haruka Tomatsu as Asuna in the voice cast.

The anime is based on Reki Kawahara's Sword Art Online: Progressive light novel series. The novel series launched in 2012 as a revised retelling of Kawahara's original Sword Art Online novels. The story depicts Kirito's journey through the floating Aincrad castle from the beginning, floor-by-floor. Yen Press is publishing the Sword Art Online: Progressive novel series in English, as well as two manga adaptations.
