Directed by Tomohiko Itō (of Sword Art Online and Erased), Hello World is a sci-fi anime film set in Kyoto 2027. The film follows Naomi Katagaki, a 16 year-old high school student who encounters a version of himself from the future. This adult Naomi must guide his younger self to help save a certain someone and change the future.
While the premise may seem simple at the start, Hello World’s story has a lot of twists which make for an exciting watch. The film’s animation is also unique in that it is 3D animated, but with a 2D art style. Finally, the film features a lovingly-rendered Kyoto. This makes the film a must-watch for anyone who has visited (or is planning to visit) Japan’s former capital.
