posted on by Egan Loo
The March issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype magazine will announce on February 10 that a theatrical Eden of the East anime film will open in Japan in 2009. Production I.G is already producing Eden of the East as a television anime series that will premiere in Japan in April. The television version will end before the film opens.
As previously announced, Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit) is creating, writing, and directing the project. Chika Umino, the creator of Honey and Clover and Young Animal magazine's ongoing March comes in like a lion manga, is creating the original character designs. Satoko Morikawa (The Cat Returns, Nanatsu no Umi no Tico, Princess Arete) is adapting Umino's designs for animation. Longtime Production I.G collaborator Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell and Death Note films) will compose the music, while Yūsuke Takeda (Blood: The Last Vampire, Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) will oversee art direction.
