The Asylum Session 3D Anime Film to Open This Summer
posted on by Egan Loo
CoMix Wave Films and BROSTA TV plan to release a 60-minute 3D computer-animated film called The Asylum Session this summer. Tact Aoki is directing this project after working on Catblue: Dynamite and creating his 2005 debut 3D computer-animated anime short, "Haruo."
The Asylum Session's story follows the trials and coming-of-age of teenaged boys and girls in the distant future. In this era, the development of civilization has stopped and even declined. Hiyoko is a runaway girl who goes to live in tents with other people at a stadium nicknamed "Asylum." There, she meets Akira, a leader of a band of street children. Profiteering police want to tear down the stadium, so its denizens create a street culture event called "The Asylum Session" to counter those plans.
The film is currently scheduled to run in two theaters in Tokyo and Osaka.
