The multiverse is everywhere. This year alone we have had Everything everywhere all at once and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Joining these titles are two multiverse animated films – To all of you that I loved and To the only me who loved you – who will air simultaneously, and how the stories are perceived depends on the order in which you watch the two films.
The movies are based on the novels Boku ga Aishita Subete no Kimi e and Kimi or Aishita Hitori no Boku andwritten by Yomoji Otono which, interestingly, was also released simultaneously on June 23, 2016.
To all of you that I loved tells the story of Koyomi Takasaki, a young boy who lives with his mother following his parents’ divorce. He then enrolls in a local college prep school but is unable to make friends due to his social awkwardness.
One day, he is suddenly approached by his classmate Kazune Takigawa, who tells him that she has traveled from the 85th world where she and Koyomi are lovers.
To the only me who loved you follows Koyomi Hidaka, a young boy who lives with his father following his parents’ divorce. He then meets a girl named Shiori Satou at the research institute where her father works.
The two develop feelings for each other but their hopes are soon dashed when their parents remarry.
Insisting on changing their destiny, Koyomi and Shiori attempt to escape to another world where they will be free to love.
“The order in which you watch the two films will dramatically change how you feel about them. I hope you enjoy the once-only choice which of the two films to watch first” , said the author.
Both films will be released in Japan on October 7. However, there is no information on international release dates yet.
