Sanyo Bussan's nine-minute "Deep Blue Song" mini-animation, part of the larger "iMarine Project," began streaming on Sunday. The anime stars Aya Uchida as iMarine, Maaya Uchida as Wendy, and Ayane Sakura as Ūny. The three characters sing the track "Deep Blue Town, Oide yo!" at approximately the four-minute mark.
The episode ends on a cliffhanger with "to be continued." Two music videos set to the same track, one animated traditionally and the via MikuMikuDance software, are coming soon.
Kiyotaka Suzuki (Psycho-Pass 2) directed the short anime at the new anime studio Revoroot, which was established last year. Keisuke Goto (Yatterman Night, Fate/Grand Order: First Order) is designed the characters. Keisuke Kojima (One-Punch Man key animation, ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept. storyboards) was in charge of storyboards and was the unit director. Satoshi Takezawa (A Town Where You Live, Space Brothers) was in charge of color design.
Takayuki Tonegawa wrote and composed the music.
The anime is part of the "iMarine Project" that launched in February 2015, and centers on the character iMarine, a new version of Sanyo Bussan's Marin from its Umi Monogatari pachinko and pachislot franchise.
The iMarine Project already had three songs with music videos, including "Marine Dreamin'," "Marine Bloomin'," and "Dive to Blue." The original Umi Monogatari franchise already inspired a television anime of the same name in 2009. Nozomi Entertainment released the series on DVD in 2015. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime.
