‘Child of Kamiari Month’ Release Date

The ‘Child of Kamiari Month’ anime film will be available for streaming exclusively on Netflix on Tuesday, February 8th, 2022, a few days prior to Valentine's Day after it was debuted in theaters in Japan on October 8th.

A teaser is now available for viewing.

‘Child of Kamairi Month’: Storyline

The film's story focuses on Kanna (CV: Aju Makita), a girl who can no longer face her beloved 'running' after her mother's passing. One day, a rabbit named Shiro (Maaya Sakamoto), who is a shinshi (a messenger of gods), and a boy named Yasha (Miyu Irino), an oni (ogre) boy, appear at her. Kanna crosses the boundary between people and gods, and is invited into Izumo.

The inspiration for the film comes from Kamiarizuki (the month when there are gods), which is another name for October in the lunar calendar in the old Izumo region (now Shimane prefecture). The tale pulls from the mythology that gods from all over Japan gather at the Izumo Taisha Shrine during Kamiarizauki. In the other areas in Japan, it is called Kannazuki (the month when there are no gods).
