Laughing Under the Clouds Gaiden Part 1 VisualSoon, the fate of the Fuma clan will be known once again.

On July 5, Eleven Arts announced that Laughing Under the Clouds Gaiden will get a theatrical run in the United States this year. The first two films will screen as a double feature when they open on August 24. The third film, Laughing Under the Clouds: Cherry Blossoms, the Bridge to Heavenly Wishes (Donten ni Warau Gaiden: Ōka, Tenbō no Kakyū) will also receive a theatrical run, though a specific time frame has yet to be announced.

Tetsuya Wakano was tapped to direct the trilogy at Wit Studio, with Kii Tanaka (Cheating Craft, Hundred) providing character designs. Eiji Umehara (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, Beelzebub) is in charge of series composition for the project.

Laughing Under the Clouds Gaiden Part 2 VisualThe original Laughing Under the Clouds manga received an anime adaptation, which aired in the Fall 2014 broadcast season. Hiroshi Haraguchi (Eureka Seven – good night, sleep tight, young lovers) directed the project at Doga Kobo, with Takao Maki providing character designs. Yuuya Takahashi (Luck & Logic) took charge of series composition on the project.

Funimation currently holds the rights to the Laughing Under the Clouds anime. They describe the series as:

When swords were outlawed in the Meiji era, the mighty samurais began to disappear. Those who rejected the ban rebelled, causing unrest throughout the countryside. To combat this criminal activity, an inescapable lake prison was constructed. Three young men, born of the Kumo line, were given the duty of delivering criminals to their place of confinement—but could there be more to their mission?
