In a press release announcing its April release slate, Section23 Films has revealed that it will begin selling the anime film The Asylum Session on April 26.
Asylum Session was announced in the summer of 2009 as a 3D anime film. The story revolves around a young woman who runs away from her father, who refuses to let her become a professional artist. The girl, Hiyoko, finds herself at the Asylum Stadium, an abandoned field where numerous homeless people live. Unfortunately, the government is planning to destroy the stadium.
CoMix Wave Ltd. produced the anime film, while Tact Aoki (Catblue: Dynamite) directed. Aya Hirano (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's Haruhi, Lucky Star's Konata) plays Hiyoko.
