Anime director Koji Morimoto's (The Animatrix, Memories, Genius Party) stage play Sheepman012: The Man of Multiplication met its Campfire crowd-funding goal of 1,500,000 yen (about US$15,000). The campaign ended on November 20 with 1,798,600 (US$18.000).
The play's website describes the story:
There are eleven people. They are "Multiplied Humans", who have been split from one person. Each of them has different figures and has had totally different lives. They get together at this bar as usual. They talk with other "Multiplied Humans", update their lives and sometimes give advises to each other… One day, one of them asks the others a question, it changes their world completely. "If we have to narrow down "Multiplied Humans" to one, which one of us will be the one?" Each of their lives has difficulties, but also bright sides. The question evokes them a fundamental statement of "hat [sic] is the best life?". While the eleven people are having hard time to find the answer, the "Original", who is the woman has stated the multiplication and the new "Multiplied Human" appear…
The play will run at Tokyo's Shinjuku Sun-Mall Studio from December 7 to 16.
