The Japanese publisher Kadokawa Shoten began streaming a 17-second television commercial for Hana no Utame Gothicmade, the directorial debut of Mamoru Nagano (Five Star Stories), on its YouTube channel on Wednesday. In addition to directing the feature film, Nagano conceived, wrote, storyboarded, and animated it. The film will open in Japan next spring.
Gothicmade was first revealed in Kadokawa's Newtype magazine and the project's official website in 2006. Shigeyo Kawamura and Nozomu Sasaki will star as the utame (song girl) Berin and the prince Toriharon, respectively.
