夏休みの登校日。中学生の典道と祐介は、なずなの前で競泳対決をすることに。典道は、競争のさなかに水中で不思議な玉を見つける。一方祐介は競争に勝ち、なずなに花火大会に誘われる。放課後、皆が打ち上げ花火のことで盛り上がっている中、なずなが母の再婚に悩んでいることを知る典道。どうすることもできない自分に典道はもどかしさを感じ、ふいに玉を投げると、なぜか競泳対決の最中に戻っていた。

About Toronto Anime Matsuri

In 2018 the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre will expand its Toronto Japanese Film Festival and month screening program to include the TORONTO ANIME MATSURI. This extension of our Toronto Japanese Film Festival and will feature screenings of anime films as well as other contemporary Japanese cultural events including J-Pop performances in our Kobayashi Hall performance space.

The JCCC has a long history of screening anime films and it is our hope to expand and broaden this initiative under the umbrella of Toronto Anime Matsuri. Our new initiative will mirror the TJFF with screenings throughout the year to align with availability of new materials, and a weekend fest devoted specifically to  ontemporary culture in August 2018. Our partners in this initiative are Anime North, J-Rock North Promotions and the Japan Foundation.

We will be screening 2 films this winter to launch this exciting new contemporary cultural offering.
