The official website for “GIVEN” has announced the 22nd August release of the upcoming film. Originally slated on 16th May, the release has been delayed due to self-restraint measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Japan. “GIVEN” stars Shougo Yano, Yuuma Uchida, Masatomo Nakazawa, Takuya Eguchi, and Shintarou Asanuma.

“GIVEN” is the hit anime adaptation of Natsuki Kizu’s eponymous BL manga series. The TV series explores the relationships of younger bandmembers Ritsuka and Mafuyu, while the film focuses on the stories of more adult bandmembers Haruki, Akihiko, and Ugetsu.
