(ぼくは明日、昨日のきみとデートする)

 
Synopsis:

Based on the popular paperback novel that has sold nearly a million copies since 2014, this film is directed by Takahiro Miki, and filmed in beautiful Kyoto, bringing to life the novel’s fantasy-like settings and the sadness of farewell.

Takatoshi Minamiyama (Sota Fukushi) is an art school student in Kyoto who falls in love with Emi Fukuju (Nana Komatsu), a girl he meets on the train. Though she bursts into tears the first time he speaks to her, their relationship grows day by day. As Takatoshi falls deeper and deeper in love with Emi,

he finds certain actions of Emi peculiar, such as her premonitions. One day, he stumbles upon a note written by her. On the note is a date in the future and the actions that Emi predicts will happen. Just as he starts raising questions, he gets a phone call from Emi: “I have to tell you something”.

The next day, unbelievable words pour out of Emi’s mouth. She explained that she is a being from a different world, and she can only be in Takatoshi’s time for 30 days every 5 years. To make things more complicated, those days are in reverse for Takatoshi and Emi, making the 1st day for Takatoshi the 30th day for Emi. That means “yesterday’s Emi” for Takatoshi was actually tomorrow’s unforeseen self for Emi, making them impossible to ever truly live in the “same time”.

Although initially dazed by the situation, Takatoshi realizes that he does not have much time left with Emi and that she is suffering far more than he is. He becomes determines to spend their limited time together, with Takatoshi supporting Emi as he gains memories and she loses them. However, Takatoshi finally breaks down and cannot bear the thought of being separated, especially as their last day together looms ahead.
