C debuts on Thursday; film of Yoshihiro Tatsumi's manga bio opens this spring

The website for Noitamina's C television anime series began streaming a new television commercial on Tuesday. (In the linked page, select the "Demo Movie" link on the lefthand side.) In modern-day Japan, an ordinary economics student named Kimimaro Yoga suddenly encounters Masakaki, a shady man from the Bank of Midas. Masakaki offers Kimimaro some lending money and a chance to be a player in a parallel-world "Financial District" — with Kimimaro's future potential as collateral.

Kenji Nakamura (Ayakashi, Mononoke, Kūchū Buranko) is directing the anime at Tatsunoko Production. Noboru Takagi (Durarara!!, Baccano!, Koi Kaze) is supervising and writing the scripts, and mebae (Sugar Dark: Umerareta Yami to Shōjo illustrator, Black Rock Shooter animator, Cencoroll contributor) is designing the characters, while Keiichi Satou (The Big O, Junkers Come Here) is the conceptual designer. The group School Food Punishment is performing the ending theme song "RPG." C will premiere on April 14.

The animation software developer Toon Boom Animation is streaming the trailer for Tatsumi, Singaporean filmmaker Eric Khoo's animated adaptation of Yoshihiro Tatsumi's semi-autobiographical manga A Drifting Life. The film follows Tatsumi's struggle to make a living in post-war Japan as he joins other creators who are pushing the boundaries of the manga field. The film is slated to open this spring.

A Drifting Life originally shipped in Japan in November of 2008 as a two-volume series. The Canadian comic book publisher Drawn & Quarterly picked up the North American license and released the manga as a single, 840-page volume in April of 2009. The technology company Hewlett Packard posted a separate video about the making of the film last month:
