The story features Ichihara as the lead character Takechi Hanpeita living in the Bakumatsu era who accidentally travels through time to the Japan of today. He then becomes a teacher at a tuition centre managed by an old man Saeki who takes him in and uses unconventional ways to solve the problems in the modern era. In conjunction with the 150th anniversary since the Meiji Restoration next year, it was then decided that the movie version would be produced and screened then.
Filming will begin in mid June at places such as Takechi's hometown in Kochi. As such, the movie will be shown first in Kochi this winter before its nationwide release in 2018.
