DeNA began streaming the third in a set of commercials for Cygames' social card game Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki no Bahamut) with director Kenji Kamiyama (Eden of the East, 009 Re:Cyborg) and his Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex composer Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne, Macross Plus/Frontier) on Thursday. The narrator proudly notes that the game is the highest-grossing smartphone card game in the United States.
Dakota Rose, the 16-year-old American "real Barbie doll" model stars as the dark angel Olivier in the "Rage of the Signs" ad.
Kamiyama previously created a "Xi Avant" anime short with NTT Docomo and started an advertising animation firm called Steve N' Steven. He also created a series of Pepsi Nex ads that tie into 009 Re:Cyborg, his upcoming computer-animated Cyborg 009 film.
