The Asylum Session 3D Anime's Trailer Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
CoMix Wave, Tact Aoki's feature about teens in distant future with Aya Hirano

The official website for Tact Aoki's The Asylum Session feature film has begun streaming the 110-second trailer that was first screened at last month's Tokyo International Anime Fair. The trailer is also available for download in Windows Media, QuickTime Movie, and MPEG-4 formats. 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.

After a career in music, Aoki worked on Catblue: Dynamite and then debuted his first 3D computer-animated anime short, "Haruo," in 2005. Voice actress Aya Hirano (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star) will play Hiyoko, while stage actor Masakazu Nemoto (Haruka: Beyond the Stream of Time stage play) will play Akira. CoMix Wave Films and BROSTA TV will screen the 60-minute 3D computer-animated film this summer in two theaters in Tokyo and Osaka.
