The official development blog of the Japanese toy maker Yamato has revealed a multimedia project called Enka Ōdō Dai Shōgun that will feature animation from Studio Anima. The project will also include illustrations, figures, novels, manga, drama CDs, and 3D computer graphics. Anima's booth at this week's Tokyo International Anime Fair 2009 will showcase a prototype for the first figure, Kiriko Hattori, from the project's modeler Mitsumasa Yoshizawa (Reflect). The booth will also sell limited edition posters illustrated by the project's co-creator Shunya Yamashita and provide more details about the overall project. (Studio Anima's own website for the project is still under construction, but Yamato indicates it will open soon.)
Studio Anima worked on the animated footage or real-time motion in Ninja Blade, Way of the Samurai 3, Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriot, Valkyria Chronicles, Suzumiya Haruhi no Tomadoi and other games.
