Sasaki and Miyano Announces Movie Plans
If you fell in love with Sasaki and Miyano this year, you are not alone. The hit rom-com expanded the BL genre in new ways with its release, and all eyes were on the franchise with season one ended. It didn't take long for a new project to get announced by Studio DEEN, and we have just learned the work in question is a full-length movie!
According to the new report, Sasaki and Miyano is getting a feature-length movie in 2023. The film will debut in Japan first and go by the title Sasaki and Miyano: Graduation. The movie will also feature a short adaptation of the Hirano and Kagiura spin-off by Sho Harusono, so fans will not want to miss out on this two-for-one deal.
Currently, Studio Deen is overseeing the movie with director Shinji Ishibara. Yusuke Shirai will reprise his role as Sasaki for the film while Soma Saito does the same for Miyano. And if you have not caught the first season of Sasaki and Miyano, the sub and dub are streaming now on Funimation.

If you are not familiar with Sasaki and Miyano, you should know Harusono began the series in 2016 as a digital manga. The series is ongoing to this day, and Studio Deen optioned it for an anime a couple of years back. The series debuted this January to positive reviews, and it did not take the studio long to announce a new project was in the works. So for those needing more details on Sasaki and Miyano, you can find the series' official synopsis below:
"It all started like a typical old-school boys' love plotline-bad-boy senior meets adorably awkward underclassman, one of them falls in love, and so on and so forth. But although Miyano is a self-proclaimed boys' love expert, he hasn't quite realized...he's in one himself. Which means it's up to Sasaki to make sure their story has a happily ever after...!"
