Cencoroll 2's Production Green-Lit
posted on by Egan Loo
The one-man animation studio Atsuya Uki has announced on his website that production on a tentatively titled Cencoroll 2 project has been green-lit. The story scenario and storyboards are currently in the works for this continuation of Uki's Cencoroll anime.
The first Cencoroll theatrical anime short's story begins when a giant monster sends a town's citizens into a panic — except for a girl named Yuki and her schoolmate Tetsu. Tetsu happens to have his own strange creature named Cenco as a pet. Another boy named Shū controls the monster threatening the town, and the stage is set for a battle.
Uki directed, wrote, designed, and animated the first Cencoroll project himself, and it had its world premiere at Canada's Fantasia 2009 festival. It also played in Tokyo, Osaka, and New York at the New York Anime Film Festival last year.
