Shinkai’s Suzume no Tojimari Gets Amazing Trailer With English Subtitles

Suzume no Tojimari is one of the most anticipated anime films of 2022: it’s the next film from Makoto Shinkai and his studio CoMix Wave. The movie just got a brand new trailer with English subtitles, where we got to hear its titular protagonist Suzume for the very first time. The trailer also includes a special theme song.

Suzume Anime Movie Gets Its First English Trailer With Nanoka Hara

On July 5, it was announced that the film’s protagonist, Suzume Iwato, was voiced by Nanoka Hara, an up-and-coming actress who has appeared in several Japanese TV dramas since 2019. It’s a fairly standard thing for anime movies. to cast their protagonists using actors and actresses, instead of seiyuu (Japanese voice and actresses).


If you take a look at the cast of Your Name, you’ll see that Mitsuha was also voiced not by a popular seiyuu but by an actress, Mone Kamishiraishi. A few Japanese games also chose their protagonists this way. For Suzume no Tojimari, Nanoka Hara was selected after an audition with more than 1,700 candidates. She is a fan films by Makoto Shinkai herself as well.

Suzume no Tojimari translates to “Suzume’s door lock”. The film will simply be called “Suzume” in English.

Suzume: Story Synopsis

The story begins when Suzume, a 17-year-old girl from a quiet town in Kyushu (southwestern Japan), ends up meeting a traveling young man “looking for a door”. Suzume then finds in the mountains a single door standing among the ruins. As if drawn to her, Suzume reaches for the door, triggering the appearance of many other mystical doors throughout Japan. Every gate brings disaster, and now it’s up to Suzume to close them all, as she enters a mysterious world beyond the gate, as if the morning sky and starry night have melted together.

Although Suzume doesn’t have a specific worldwide release date, it has been confirmed that the movie will be released in most countries in early 2023. I’m really looking forward to it because the story and visuals piqued my interest after this trailer. The core staff of Your Name and several previous works by Makoto Shinkai also return to Suzume, with Masayoshi Tanaka serving as character designer and Kenichi Tsuchiya serving as animation director.
