Fw: Hamatora (“Forward: Hamatora”), a compilation movie that recaps the events of the 2014 TV anime series Hamatora and Re: Hamatora, is receiving a 2 week limited theatrical release in Japan beginning on November 14, 2015. The film will run as a double-feature with Mini-Hama, a short original work featuring the cast of Hamatora with cute, chibi character designs.
Hamatora is a mixed media franchise that includes both the animation and a manga written by Yukino Kitajima and illustrated by Yūki Kodama published in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine. The series revolves around a pair of young private detectives in an alternate world version of Yokohama where a small percentage of the population manifests supernatural powers.
