- Otakorp Inc. have announced that in collaboration with Shout! Factory Films, the crowd-funded award-winning feature animated film In This Corner of the World (Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni) will be shown at Otakon 2017.
- The story of In This Corner of the World follows a young lady named Suzu Urano, who in 1944 moves to the small town of Kure in Hiroshima to live with her husband’s family.
