Eleven Arts Anime Studio announced that they have acquired the distribution rights to the anime film adaptation Waki Yamato’s Haikara-san ga Tooru. The film adaptation’s official title is Haikara-san: Here Comes Miss Modern and Eleven Arts aims to release the film in U.S. theaters on June 8! A sequel film is also scheduled for U.S. theatrical release later this year in the Fall, but an official date has not yet been determined.

Haikara-san: Here Comes Miss Modern will be presented with its original Japanese audio with English subtitles. 

Eleven Arts offers a comment on the film as follows:

Benio’s aptitude for martial arts, her strong will, and her dedication to her friends is what made her such an icon in the original manga, and inspired a successful run for the TV adaptation. Today, titles like Wonder Woman and Lady Bird and even other anime such as Mary and the Witch’s Flower and Napping Princess have carried the torch with themes of female empowerment. Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern updates a beloved character while joining the roster of new female cinema for today’s world. It is the perfect time for this title.

The Los Angeles-based Eleven Arts have brought several anime film titles to the U.S. such as Girls Und Panzer Der Film, Yo-Kai Watch: The Movie, Digimon Adventure Tri Chapter 1: Reunion, The Last: Naruto the Movie, Boruto: Naruto the Movie, Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale, Sailor Moon R, A Silent Voice, the entire Neon Genesis Evangelion film series and much, much more!
