Mai Mai Miracle's 1st 5 Minutes from Madhouse Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
6 more minutes also on YouTube, Nico Nico Douga's new Madhouse Channel

The Avex Network posted the first five minutes and another six minutes from director Sunao Katabuchi (Black Lagoon) and MADHOUSE's anime film adaptation of Nobuko Takagi's Mai Mai Miracle (Mai Mai Shinko to Sennen no Mahō) novel on the YouTube website on Wednesday. Three television commercials were also posted between last month and last week. Eight more videos of production drawings were posted on the Madhouse Official Channel that the Nico Nico Douga website launched on Friday.

The story is set in 1955 in a town in southwestern Japan, where a nine-year-old girl named Shinko has an ancient family connection to a thousand-year-old province known as Suō. Shinko joins Kiiko, a new transfer student from her school, on a magical adventure. Before directing Black Lagoon, Katabuchi was an assistant director on Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's Kiki's Delivery Service. He also directed Meiken Lassie and Princess Arete. Mai Mai Miracle is opening in Japan on Saturday.
