posted on 2009-11-17 03:16 EST
Like MTV Japan's The World of GOLDEN EGGS, this "slow-life anime" is part of the datsuryoku-kei (ennui-style) genre of comedy that depicts the listless minutiae of everyday life. Series producer and director Ryōichi Mori ("Each Life") combines motion-captured improvised acting with computer animation in this production from CoMix Wave Films and BROSTA TV.
Each of the five shorts will run on the lobby monitors in T-Joy's theater chain for two weeks before being replaced by the next short. In one Tokyo cinema complex (Shinjuku Wald 9), the shorts will run on the complex's actual theater screens.
