Although you might wonder, how can you make a film based on a simple rhythm game? However, if you have played the game itself, you wouldn’t need to know what a fantastic and heartfelt story the game told with its amazing music and visuals.
What is the ‘DEEMO Memorial Keys‘ about?
The game came out on November 13, 2013, on Android and IOS devices. Since then, it has seen many ports on systems like Nintendo Switch and PS Vita. The game reached mainstream popularity thanks to its gorgeous visuals, fantastic story, and spectacular soundtrack.
The game developed by Taiwanese game developer Rayark is about a girl that mysteriously falls into a castle out of nowhere with no memories. Moreover, the castle is inhabited by odd but harmless creatures. She is greeted by a mysterious piano-playing figure, DEEMO. From their meeting, a heartfelt and musical tale takes place.
The film is directed by Shuhei Matsushita and Junichi Fujisaku. The anime studios behind them are Production I.G and Signal M.D. Another thing to note is that the film will possibly feature a soundtrack from the game itself since we hear it in the trailers as well.

We’ll keep an eye on the usual suspects like Funimation and Crunchyroll to see which one will bag the rights for this upcoming film. Until then, maybe you can check out “Fruit Basket: Prelude,” another anime film that’s the talk of the town these days.
