iMarine Project Story Concludes in 2nd Music Video
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Sanyo Bussan's nine-minute "Deep Blue Song" mini-animation, part of the larger "iMarine Project," streamed to the tune of two million viewers when it debuted in July. The video promoted the imaginary "Deep Blue Town" and ended with a cliffhanger set to be continued in the sequel. That video premiered today and reveals the "mysterious incident" that occurred at the end of the previous music video all the while set to the track "Deep Blue Song".
Kiyotaka Suzuki (Psycho-Pass 2) directed the short anime at the new anime studio Revoroot, which was established last year. Keisuke Goto (Yatterman Night, Fate/Grand Order: First Order) is designed the characters. Keisuke Kojima (One-Punch Man key animation, ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept. storyboards) was in charge of storyboards and was the unit director. Satoshi Takezawa (A Town Where You Live, Space Brothers) was in charge of color design.
Takayuki Tonegawa wrote and composed the music.
The anime stars Aya Uchida as iMarine, Maaya Uchida as Wendy, and Ayane Sakura as Ūny.
The anime is part of the "iMarine Project" that launched in February 2015, and centers on the character iMarine, a new version of Sanyo Bussan's Marin from its Umi Monogatari pachinko and pachislot franchise.
The iMarine Project already had three songs with music videos, including "Marine Dreamin'," "Marine Bloomin'," and "Dive to Blue." The original Umi Monogatari franchise already inspired a television anime of the same name in 2009. Nozomi Entertainment released the series on DVD in 2015. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime.
