News Studio 4°C Makes Anime Short of Shirow's Orion Manga
posted on 2010-05-25 14:11 EDT
Studio 4°C (Tekkonkinkreet, The Animatrix, Genius Party) has produced a 150-second animated film short of Masamune Shirow's Orion science-fiction fantasy manga, and the Short Shorts Film Festival will premiere the short on June 11 in Tokyo. Director Yasuhiro Aoki (Batman: Gotham Knight, Tweeny Witches) adapted the manga with 3D animation. Dark Horse Comics published the original manga in North America.
The festival will also show A Summer Night's Dream, Yoshiya Okoyama's 11-minute film about "a young boy and 'Tokori,' [his] friendly ghost."

Mike wonders aloud about what happened to all that ADV Films stuff that never made the jump from VHS to DVD. 2013-06-16
One of those blustery, everyone-
The Last of Us is about the thick skin we've built for ourselves and, underneath that, the places where we secret our hurt.
Underneath all the explosive polygons and proper nouns, Remember Me is a game that has no idea what it's actually about.
The ending of Jormungand has something important to say ... but never figures out the actual message.
Sunny is an interesting glimpse into the lives of children who feel that the world has forsaken them and how they manage to cope with the help of an old car and a little imagination.
Ultimately Missions of Love still reads like a sexy book for middle schoolers. Yukina is far from a likeable heroine, neither Shigure nor Akira come off as particularly desirable male leads, and the less savory elements of the story detract from its romance components.
CG animation highlights this story of a special task force who must deal with corpses turned into rampaging monsters in this recent effort from Gonzo. Though flawed, particularly grim, and certainly not innovative, it does deliver a fair amount of entertainment value and some occasionally very solid storytelling.
