The Young Animator Training Project began streaming a promotional video for the four anime titles from last year's inaugural selection process on Friday. The four anime are Mitsuru Hongo's "Kizuna Ichigeki" (Ascension), Teiichi Takiguchi's "O-jii-san no Lamp" (Telecom Animation Film), Masayuki Yoshihara's "Bannō Yasai Ninninman" (P.A. Works), and Kazuchika Kise's "Tansuwarashi" (Production I.G). The Japanese television station MBS will air one of the four anime every week starting on March 5 at 26:58 (effectively March 6 at at 2:58 a.m.) Eight theaters in Japan will also screen the four anime during the March 5-11 week.
The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Kazune Kawahara's High School Debut (Kōkō Debut) shōjo manga began streaming a full trailer on Thursday. In this high school romantic comedy, a girl named Haruna (fashion model Ito Ōno) recruits a boy named Yoh (Junpei Mizobata) to remake her image and get a boyfriend. Under Yoh's "coaching," Haruna transforms from a softball-playing tomboy to a feminine girl. However, Yoh adds one catch to their agreement: Haruna cannot fall in love with Yoh himself. The film will open in Japan on April 1.
