Vexille/Ping Pong helmer adapts Yukinobu Hoshino's manga about space travel

The official website for Fumihiko Sori's computer-animated To science-fiction action project has begun streaming a 90-second promotional movie. (In the linked page, select the "Movie" menu option on the bottom.) After producing the first computer-animated Appleseed film and directing both Ping Pong and Vexille - 2077 Isolation of Japan, Sori is now adapting two stories from Yukinobu Hoshino's 2001 Nights (2001 Ya Monotogari) manga. "Symbiotic Planet" and "Elliptical Orbit" are part of a centuries-long narrative about mankind's voyages into space.

The two animated stories will be released simultaneously on DVDs which the distributor Avex will begin renting in Japanese video stores on October 2. No other release plans have been officially announced yet.
