‘Sing A Bit Of Harmony’ is a science fiction drama anime co-produced by the Japanese production company J.C. Staff and Funimation. It was directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Ichirō Ōkouchi. The movie had its premiere in Japan on October 29, 2021. As their first co-production, Funimation announced that they are bringing the film to North America with an English dub.
“This news is music to our ears—we’re pleased to announce that Sing a Bit of Harmony, Funimation’s first co-produced film, will be bursting into song and into theaters around the world on this January,” they said on their website. “You can keep up on all the info for the film right here. And on another high note, let’s give a resounding welcome to the English dub cast and crew who’ll be bringing this film’s joyous characters to life…”
Funimation continues, “Caitlin Glass leads the English dub crew as ADR Director, with Brina Palencia as ADR Song Director. Megan Shipman (SSSS.DYNAZENON) will be lending her voice to Shion, an android transfer student that’s anything but robotic, and Risa Mei (My Senpai is Annoying) will play Satomi. They’re joined by a whole choir of talent, including Jordan Dash Cruz (SHADOWS HOUSE) as Toma, Ian Sinclair (The Vampire Dies in No Time) as Gotchan, Alexis Tipton (Fire Force) as Aya and Kamen Casey as Thunder.”
The movie will have a limited run in theaters on January 23, 25, and 26 before heading to the Funimation streaming service.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows:
“Sing a Bit of Harmony tells the story of the beautiful and mysterious Shion who transfers to Keibu High School where she quickly becomes popular due to her open-hearted personality and exceptional athletic talent…but she turns out to be an AI in the testing phase!
Shion’s goal is to bring chronic loner Satomi “happiness.” However, her strategy is something no human would expect: she serenades Satomi in the middle of the classroom. After finding out that Shion is an AI, Satomi and her childhood friend, engineering geek Touma, steadily warm up to the new student. Along with the popular and attractive Gocchan, the strong-willed Aya, and judo club member “Thunder,” they become more and more moved by Shion’s singing and earnestness even as her antics bewilder them. But what Shion does for Satomi’s sake ends up involving them all in some serious pandemonium. Get ready for the heartwarming story of a not quite market-ready AI and her classmates!”
The film was pre-screened at the Glasglow Film Theatre for the Scotland Loves Animation film festival on October 2, 2021, where it won the Audience Award.
