3rd Isshoni Project by Primastea to Ship This Fall
posted on by Egan Loo
The website Saishin Anime Jōhō reports that the anime studio Primastea is planning to release the third project in the Isshoni franchise this fall. The project is now "in diligent production," and more details will be announced in the future.
The Isshoni franchise launched in April of 2009 with Isshoni Training: Training with Hinako (pictured at right), an exercise video with an anime girl that became a surprise hit and sold 13,300 copies in its first two weeks. The second project, Isshoni Sleeping: Sleeping with Hinako, launched in February with the title character returning for a "pleasant sleeping and alarm clock" anime.
Before the third Isshoni project ships, Primastea is distributing the first part of Kuttsukiboshi, an anime about two girls' "risky" summer vacation together. Freelance animator Naoya Ishikawa (Docchimo Maid, Binchō-tan) directed, wrote, and animated Kuttsukiboshi entirely himself. Primastea will offer advance sales of the first Kuttsukiboshi volume at the Comic Market 78 event at Tokyo Big Sight from August 13 to August 15.
The Primastea booth (the company's first at Comic Market) will also offer the Kuttsukiboshi original soundtrack and storyboard collection, Hinako Kiss sports towel, and three t-shirts with Hinako quotes. The studio will display its Isshoni Training: Training with Hinako Android app and upcoming Hinako figure from Isshoni Sleeping.
