This Gay Romance Anime Is Coming to the U.S. & We're Already Emotional

The Stranger By The Shore will be available to watch this July!


Funimation Studios has announced a new gay romance film for the world to gush over. 

According to the official description, "The Stranger By the Shore follows the love story of Shun Hashimoto, an aspiring novelist, and Mio Chibana, a grieving young man, who both find more than they bargained for during a time of transition. As each day passes, both young men find themselves in an ever-unique, undisturbed voyage of friendship and romance. But self-doubt, family, acceptance, and fear will challenge these young men, as nothing worth fighting for goes without taking chances."

The adorable film is based on a manga series by Kanna Kii. While the anime premiered in Japan last September, it's a massive deal that an LGBTQ+ film is being dubbed and made available in the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Brazil, and Mexico as well. Queer stories are getting a larger platform worldwide, and that's certainly a win for all of us!

Some of the creators and cast are celebrating on social media. Josh Grell, who leads the dubbed version as Shun, wrote "You guys. This one is incredibly special. I am so effing proud of FUNi for bringing this tour de force of gay love to the west! @DavidWald_VA has crafted a sweeping love-song of a dub, and I can't wait for you to get to dance to it the beautiful music."

The Stranger By the Shore will be available to stream July 9 on Funimation. Watch the trailer below:
