Eiga Sayonara Watashi no Cramer First Touch, the film part of the project, will premiere in early summer, delayed from its originally planned April 1 opening. The anime's website noted that the delay was due to "various circumstances," but expressed hopes of a resolution to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The film's story will adapt the Sayonara, Football prequel manga, which follows Nozomi in junior high school.
Seiki Takuno (Boarding School Juliet, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) is directing the TV series and film at LIDEN FILMS, and Natsuko Takahashi (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Cutie Honey Universe) is writing the script. Eriko Itō (Hamatora, Ane Log) is designing the characters, and Masaru Yokoyama (Your Lie in April, Fruits Basket) is composing the music.
Toei is distributing the film. Aika Kobayashi is performing the film's theme song "Sora wa Dare ka no Mono Ja Nai" (The Sky Doesn't Belong to Anyone).
Arakawa launched the manga in May 2016.
