Digital Manga Publishing publishes the Twittering Birds Never Fly manga in English, and it describes the story:

The sexually masochistic yakuza boss, Yashiro, isn't the type to warm up to others easily. But when Chikara Doumeki, his newly hired bodyguard, catches his interest, he reconsiders his "hands-off" policy with subordinates. As Yashiro's invitations fail, the yakuza boss finds out his bodyguard has a very personal reason for staying at arm's length.

Fuji TV's new Blue Lynx boys-love anime label is producing the film as its first project.

Kaori Makita (Yuri!!! on Ice, Banana Fish episode director) is directing the film at GRIZZLY (Yarichin Bitch-bu). Hiroshi Seko (Banana Fish, Mob Psycho 100 II) is penning the script. The piano trio band H ZETTRIO are composing the music. Omoinotake are performing the theme song "Moratorium."

The manga runs in Taiyoh Tosho's Hertz and ihr HertZ magazines.
