Happy-Go-Lucky Days tells three unique stories of young people in Japan from very different backgrounds but who all must grapple with changes, in mind, body and soul, on their bittersweet journey from adolescence. From a forbidden crush, to the wedding of a former lover, to the burgeoning feelings for a childhood friend, each scenario may differ, but they have one thing in common: These are universally frank stories of humanity that will touch the hearts of audiences everywhere.”
The film premiered in Japan earlier this year on October 23rd and features the voice talents of Kana Hanazawa, Mikako Komatsu, Seiichiro Yamashita, and more.
Happy-Go-Lucky Days will premiere on the streaming platform HIDIVE beginning on December 10th. Physical releases and other streaming service premieres will be announced at a later date.
