Look Back: Watch Trailer for Next Anime Movie from Chainsaw Man Creator

Mangaka Tatsuki Fujimoto is best known by anime fans as the creator of Chainsaw Man, but he also has a fantastic one-shot manga called Look Back which is a slice-of-life story about two young girls who want to become manga artists.

As it turns out, Look Back is going to be getting the anime movie treatment, and we just got a new trailer. Check this out:

Here’s the official description translated [and edited]:

Tatsuki Fujimoto’s youth story has been made into an animated movie!

Fujino is a fourth-year elementary school student who serializes four-panel comics in her school’s newspaper. She received rave reviews from her classmates, but one day, her teacher told her that he wanted to post four frames of Kyomoto, a classmate who was refusing to go to school.

What connects the two girls is a single-minded love for manga. But one day, something happens that shatters everything… An amazing coming-of-age story that will pierce your heart.

Unlike Chainsaw Man which goes for several chapters, Look Back is one self-contained story. And though it doesn’t have a lot of fantastical battles and monsters, it does have a very artsy take on the character of the ‘obsessed artist.’

When you read it, you can’t help but think this is also a look into Fujimoto’s mindset when he was training himself to be a mangaka; and top that off with the frustation that one feels when they see someone who is naturally talented in the craft.

By the looks of the trailer, we could be seeing some kind of change in the original story of the manga—which can admittedly get kind of tragic. Either way, I don’t expect it to be any less emotional.

Look Back will release in theaters on June 28.
