The animation studio behind hit anime film "Your Name" has teamed up with Netflix for a new project, which is set to premiere early next month.

Animation studio CoMix Wave Films and Netflix's "Flavors of Youth" has Yoshitaka Takeuchi, who worked on Makoto Shinkai's "Your Name" and "5 Centimeters Per Second," as the director of the film, while Noritaka Kawaguchi, who worked with Takeuchi and Shinkai, is the producer, according to a statement.

"Flavours of Youth" is a story told in three chapters, set in three different cities in China. The story centres around the fond memories of the main characters while accentuating the timeless effect that memories have on people's lives.
