From a penguin with existential crisis to an uneaten piece of pork cutlet, the main Sumikko are some of the squishiest characters ever.

I hope that the second film of the series is just as touching as the rest of the adventures of these lovable characters.

Eiga Sumikko Gurashi: Aoi Tsukiyo no Mahō no Ko, the second film of the Sumikko Gurashi franchise, will be released in Japan on November 5, 2021.

A new trailer for the film was also recently revealed.

BUMP OF CHICKEN performed the theme song of the film, “Small World.” The song is also previewed in the trailer.

The trailer gives us a glimpse into the magical world of the Sumikko. The way they all just squish together in the corner of a room or a couch is very adorable.

In the film, the characters will go on a camping trip where they will encounter a rare blue moon. Everything that happens afterward is even more magical than the series itself.

Even though Sumikko Gurashi debuted as somewhat negative and wallflower-type characters by San-X, they have amassed enough fans who relate with them.

I just hope that major streaming websites like Funimation or Crunchyroll get a hold of this anime fast so that I can sit in the corner of my room and enjoy an anime that truly suits my nature.
