The website Cinema Today posted the full-length trailer for Toei's Asura anime film.
Toei's Asura project was first revealed in 2010, and Keiichi Satou (Tiger & Bunny, Karas) was announced as its director in January of this year. Based on George Akiyama's 1970-1971 manga, the unrelentingly dark drama follows the struggles of a child during a famine in medieval Japan. His mother was so impoverished and starved that she tried to eat Asura at the beginning of the story.
The film will open in Japan on September 29.
