Almost a Miracle

©Yuki Ando/SHUEISHA ©2019 “Almost a Miracle” Film Partners
A new type of main character, who is both extremely ordinary and universally lovable.

Machida is unlike any protagonist you've seen before. He's dull, he wears glasses, and he has no distinguishing features.
His only talent is his ability to love everyone, unconditionally. However, as he gets to know his classmate Inohara, who says she hates people, he is forced to confront an emotion growing within himself that he has never felt before...
Suddenly, a series of unexpected events is set in motion, with unpredictable consequences. Before long, Machida drags more and more people into his orbit, which ultimately results in an amazing conclusion!
