Art Corporation's Move to the Future Web Series Posts 6th Episode

posted on by Kim Morrissy

House-moving business Art Corporation streamed the sixth episode of its Move to the Future series of sci-fi anime shorts on Sunday. The ad depicts the future of moving house with a gadget maker, who is strongly implied to be the heroine Izumi's future self, overcoming a slump.

The shorts tell the heartwarming story of a girl named Izumi, who meets a robot named A-bot who takes her on a trip to the future. Izumi is voiced by Kana Hanazawa (Akane from Psycho-Pass, Kuroneko from Oreimo), while A-bot is voiced by Akira Ishida (Kaworu from Evangelion, Kikuhiko from Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū).

According to the project's website, at least nine episodes are planned in total.

Like the previous four shorts, the anime was produced by Studio Bind (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation). The second episode was a collaboration between Studio Bind and ROLL2. Takao Abo (The Rising of The Shield Hero) is the director of episodes 4-6, while Kazuya Aiura (Assassins Pride) directed the first three episodes.

The prologue short, titled "Episode 00," was directed by Motonobu Hori (Carole & Tuesday director, Napping Princess animation director and unit director) at Signal.MD. Tetsuya Wakabayashi from Sherpa Creative Partner is the creative director across every short so far, while Hori designed the characters.
