TAF 2007: Project to Create CG Film Version of Blame! Underway

posted on by Evan Miller
A project to create a film based on the Tsutomu Nihei manga Blame! was announced at the Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) on Thursday.

The cyberpunk manga first appeared in the manga magazine "Monthly Afternoon" in 1997. The series is currently being released by Tokyopop in North America. In 2002, a web based anime based on the series was released, but it failed to gain much popularity among anime fans.

This time, a full 3D CG animation is being planned. One of the companies involved with the project is Micott and Basara, who worked on the CG anime in the anime motion picture Appleseed. The marketing campaign for the project begins this summer with sales of figurines and a short DVD. Many other companies are involved in making the film, including MTV trainsurfer and Production I.G, who will be working on backgrounds for the film.
