posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for Keiichi Hara and Sunrise's Colorful anime film has begun streaming a five-minute video introduction to the film's story world on Thursday. (In the linked page, select the purple-blue "5分で分かる映画『カラフル』の世界 プロモ映像" button at the bottom center.) The video features interviews with the director and cast to preview the film.
Hara, the director best known for Summer Days with Coo, is adapting Eto Mori's young adults' novel which won the Sankei Children's Publishing Cultural Prize in 1999. (The novel and film are unrelated to Torajirou Kishi's Colorful manga and television anime series.) The "heart-warming comedy" follows a person who finds himself trapped outside the normal endless circle of life and death. Thanks to winning a lottery in the angel world, the protagonist is brought back to inhabit the body of a 14-year-old boy — who just committed suicide. Thus, the protagonist begins a new life. The film will open in Japan this Saturday.
The official website of the Koe de Oshigoto (KoeGoto) original video anime project has begun streaming a promotional video on Thursday. (In the linked page, select the blue-dotted video area under the red "「こえでおしごと!」PV公開!" heading.) The same promotional video ran during Tokyo's Comic Market 78 event this past weekend. The website is also streaming a video with the voice actresses Mako (Kanna Aoyagi) and Ayano Ishikawa (Fumika Warasono). Azure Konno's original manga follows a high school girl named Kanna Aoyagi who becomes a voice actress for adult games. The first volume of the anime will ship in Japan on November 17.
The official website for the Yumekui Merry television anime series is also streaming a promotional video that first ran during Comic Market 78. The anime adapts Yoshitaka Ushiki's action fantasy manga about a high school boy named Yumeji Fujiwara who has the mysterious power to see other people's dreams or nightmares. One day, he meets Merry, a beautiful girl who came from the world of dreams.
