The mobile social gaming network GREE began streaming a promotional video on Thursday for the Odoriko Clinoppe (Dancer Clinoppe) television anime series. The upcoming series adapts GREE's creature-raising game of the same name.
The video follows the protagonist "Onei-san" after she comes home from work tired and exhausted. Suddenly, she sees a the odd-looking Clinoppe dancing nearby. Clinoppe might be trying to cheer up Onei-san, or it might just be trying to get Onei-san to give it candy (Clinoppe's favorite food).
In the game, the player raises Clinoppe, a mysterious creature with a squishy, palm-sized body that was discovered in the mountains of India. The player can take care of Clinoppe, outfit it with clothes and items, and watch it dance. Different players can also chat and exchange ideas in this game popular with among women in their 20s and 30s.
The "surreal, comical" television anime will follow the daily life of Clinoppe and an office lady named Onei-san as the two begin to live together. The anime is the first part of GREE's initiative to expand its licensing character business for the game.
The series will premiere on May 9 and will air during TV Asahi's Break Out program.
