Blogger and Anime Expo guest Danny Choo confirmed on Sunday that Good Smile Company will provide him with "10+ minutes" of exclusive footage from the Black Rock Shooter anime project to screen at the July 1-4 convention in Los Angeles.
The 50-minute anime project showcases the Black Rock Shooter character illustrations by artist huke. The character illustrations inspired the musical artist Ryo to compose a "Black Rock Shooter" song using the Vocaloid2 voice-synthesis character Hatsune Miku, and a "pilot edition" of anime has already been released in September. The project is being directed by Shinobu Yoshioka and supervised by Yutaka Yamamoto (Kannagi, Haruhi Suzuymiya, Lucky Star), whose studio Ordet is handling the animation production.
The anime was initially slated to be released for free online and in magazines later this month. However, the project's website announced last month that the magazines are delaying their release of the anime by one month.
