posted on by Andrew Osmond
Manga Entertainment is streaming previews of 10 Fumihiko Sori's CG science-fiction anime 2001 Nights, also known as To. The anime is scheduled for release on DVD and Blu-Ray on September 26.
Sori produced the first CG Appleseed film and directed Vexille - 2077 Isolation of Japan. 2001 Nights is adapted from two stories in Yukinobu Hoshino's 2001 Nights (2001 Ya Monotogari) manga. "Symbiotic Planet" and "Elliptical Orbit" are part of Hoshino's centuries-long storyline about mankind's voyages into space. The manga also inspired a 1987 video anime.
Four 2001 Nights clips are currently available on Manga UK's youtube channel (search uploads, "2001 Nights"), with more to follow. Two of the clips are embedded below.
In addition, Japanese-language footage from the anime was streamed online when the anime was promoted in Japan.
