Matt Greenfield will direct both shorts, and Tiffany Grant wrote the ADR script for Coicent.
Coicent reunites writer/director Shuhei Moritai and character designer Daisuke Sajiki, who previously collaborated on the CGI anime hit Kakurenbo. The story takes place in the 26th century where a school trip to a rebuilt 21st century city has teenage Shinichi chasing a talking deer that steals his bag. He encounters a strange girl being chased by pursuers.
Five Numbers! is directed by Hiroaki Ando with character designer Masaru Gotsubo (Samurai Champloo) and scripter Dai Sato (Ergo Proxy, Cowboy Bebop). The story consists of four people awakening to find themselves in a prison: an ex-soldier, a beautiful woman, an average Joe and a young computer hacker. They must find out how the four of them are connected and it seems only the fifth prisoner, an old man, knows – but he isn't talking.
