Yakusoku Nanaya no Matsuri, new original anime of Xflag for July 7

Exclusive promotion



XFLAG have announced a new original anime entitled Yakusoku no Nanaya Matsuri, which will be released on July 7 via YouTube. Although they have not specified the format of this anime, by its description it seems that they will be a movie. In the promotional image it can be read: "Everyone has someone they want to meet with".


The anime centers on Shoma Mihara, a first-year high school student. Shoma hasn't seen his good friend Atsushi in 3.5 years, ever since they lost contact with each other after elementary school. One day, Atsushi gets in contact with Shoma to invite him to a rare festival, so they can meet up and talk. Shoma goes to the "Tanabata Seven Night Festival" deep in the mountains, but Atsushi is not there. Instead, a girl named Shiori who also has a person she wants to meet is there. The festival's program manager Kanna suggests that he stay until the festival is over, and so Shoma and Shiori help Kanna prepare for the festival. Shoma and Shiori then get wrapped up in some strange events happening in the town.
