The A Turtle’s Shell is a Human’s Ribs release date is on October 28, 2022.

The new A Turtle’s Shell is a Human’s Ribs movie trailer reveals more of the cast. The film was shown during Anime Expo 2022 and is based on an experimental picture book by Satoshi Kawasaki.

The book shows how animal bodies work if they are part of a human body. For example, a turtle’s shell is the same as a human’s ribcage, and a flamingo’s knee is the same as a human’s ankle.

What is A Turtle’s Shell is a Human’s Ribs?

A Turtle’s Shell is a Human’s Ribs may look frightening, but the movie’s plot is familiar. Kameda Kameta is an ordinary sophomore student with a dull school life.

He keeps to himself, but when his best friend, El Takashi Kaerugawa, is in the news after helping people. The superstars of the school take an interest in Kameda.

Lion Temple Rai wants to be the student council president. Kaeru River joins their group, but Tameda can’t help feeling jealous and inferior to everyone around him.

Will their friendship survive and what’ll happen once the Bone-To-Bone collide session begins during the student council election? The range of animal traits has familiar characteristics and new ones.

The trailers show a wide variety, and the music is excellent. The movie will air in Japan on October 28, 2022.

There’s no word on if or when the movie will be available overseas, but this is for you if you love learning about animals and high school stories! The cast is:

  • Hiroya Shimizu as Kamero Kameta
  • Hayato Isomura as Eeruo Kaerukawa
  • Denden as Usakura Usagibayashi
  • Moe Kamikokuryo as Flami Flamingotsuka
  • Takuya Eguchi as Raio Raionji
  • Yukihiro Nozuyama as Rintaro Kirinzawa
  • Shintaro Morimoto as Umaryoma Umawatari
  • Amatsuki as Samesei Samezu
  • Ayahi Takagaki is the narrator and performs the insert song, Bone Hymn

Samesei is a very talented shark boy!

When we hear, “shark,” odds are we’re thinking about being bitten and dragged underwater. The latest video on ASMIK Ace’s YouTube channel shows a clip involving Samesei.

He likes to bite things, and he appears to be floating! But he shows off his skills even further, by biting onto a microphone and singing, “Can I Bite?”

It’s a cute scene that makes me hope we’ll get the movie overseas! Masa Mori is directing and wrote the script with Shinichi Tanaka at Type ZERO.

Studio Outrigger developed the project, and the theme song is Like by OCTPATH.
