Short film based on Otomo Katsuhiro manga announced at Tokyo International Anime Fair 2007

After impressing audiences at an initial screening at the "animecs" portion of last year's Tokyo International Film Festival, it has been announced that the short anime film Shin SOS Dai Tokyo Taikentai (New Tokyo Explorer Team) will be released in select Japanese theatres this May.

The film is based on the short Otomo Katsuhiro manga Tokyo Explorer Team. Most of the staff working on the film are holdovers from the staff group that worked on the anime motion picture Steamboy. Directing the film is Takagi Shinji, who also directed Blood: The Last Vampire.

The film is a mix of cel touched animation and three dimensional CG animation, which earned the film praise from many people in the anime industry.
