Support Kumamoto Earthquake Reconstruction with Anime Tamago DVD Compilation

posted on by Eric Stimson
Includes five shorts by young animators

Almost five months after the powerful earthquakes that struck in mid-April, Kumamoto Prefecture in Kyushu continues to rebuild at great cost. To alleviate the burden from governments, Anime Tamago, a young animator training project previously known as Anime Mirai, will release a compilation DVD of five of its anime shorts. Aside from what is needed to recoup production costs, all of the profits from the DVD will go to support Kumamoto's reconstruction. The anime were received for free from their studios, while services related to DVD production and sales were also received for free.

The DVD, Anime Tamago Anime Mirai for Kumamoto, includes Aki no Kanade (which is set in Kumamoto), Kuro no Su - Chronus, Happy ComeCome, Ongaku Shōjo and Colorful Ninja Iromaki. It is available for preorder for 2,000 yen ($19.64) at Animate; sales begin on September 30.

Others that have been involved in Kumamoto-related charity include Takeshi Konomi, Good Smile Company, Level-5, YOSHIKI and the One Piece kabuki troupe.
