The official website for the CANAAN anime adaptation of Sega and Chunsoft's 428 ~Fuusa Sareta Shibuya de~ visual novel is now streaming a commercial in 1M or 500K bandwidth. The 17-second commercial advertises the DVD/CD preview set that will be sold during the Comic Market 75 convention in Tokyo this coming weekend. The ad includes part of the "Arousing Soul" song by Feiran that will be in the set.
The actual visual novel shipped for the Nintendo Wii console on December 4. The modern-day story centers on a group of people, from all walks of life, who are brought together in the Tokyo neighborhood of Shibuya by bizarre events with worldwide implications. Sword of the Stranger director Masahiro Ando (not to be confused with the similarly named Sailor Moon animation director Masahiro Ando) is overseeing the animators at P.A. Works (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society, Darker than Black) on the anime version.
