The BIGLOBE service began streaming the first six minutes from the fifth installment in BONES' six-film series Towa no Quon on Tuesday. The fifth installment in the supernatural anime film series will open in Japan on November 5.
The first installment in the series opened in theaters on June 18 in Japan, and it was released on Blu-ray and DVD on August 26. The next three films followed in Japan on July 16, August 13, and September 10. The story of Towa no Quon follows a boy named Quon and others who suddenly wake up with supernatural powers. He must protect himself and those like him from Kestos, the secret organization hunting them.
Takeshi Mori (Otaku no Video, Gunsmith Cats, Vandread) is serving as the BONES series' "collaborative director" in place of the late Umanosuke Iida (Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team, Hellsing). Iida passed away from lung cancer last November as he was planning the series.
Sentai Filmworks licensed the series in September, and The Anime Network is currently streaming the first three installments in the series to subscribers. Sentai Filmworks plans to release the series on Blu-ray and DVD in 2012.
