Official Trailer for “The Concierge” Previews The Film’s Theme Song

Working in the service industry is no easy feat. The job is demanding and exhausting, especially if your customers are animals! While the story of this anime film is a little unusual, it is certainly amusing.

The Concierge at Hokkyoku Department Store has attracted many people. And the story centers around a newcomer who works at a mysterious department store and tries to make appropriate recommendations to the unique customers. More details about this anime film have been revealed.

The official website for The Concierge, the anime film, unveiled its full trailer and poster visual for the film. The trailer reveals and previews the film’s theme song, “Gift,” from singer-songwriter Myuk. The film will be released on October 20.

The one-minute video trailer starts with the new concierge stepping on her customer. She seems to be struggling in this new environment. However, she is still shown trying her best.

This anime looks extremely promising. The background designs are notably attractive, with textures and well-chosen colors. The place has a mystery vibe, and the animal guests have great fashion pieces which suit their personality.

However, some fans believe this anime would do well as an anthology series and wonder why they decided to make this a movie instead.

Despite everything, I believe this anime film will be a total banger and is a must-watch.
