Blood-C: The Last Dark Film's 1st Intro Video Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
Super-deformed versions of twins Nono & Nene Motoe introduce characters

The film distributor Shochiku began streaming the first introductory video to the Blood-C: The Last Dark's film on Monday. In the 126-second video, the identical twins Nono & Nene Motoe — in super-deformed form — introduce their classmate Saya and other characters in the vampire anime film. The film's story is set in Tokyo one year after the Blood-C television series.

The manga creator team CLAMP developed the story and original character designs for the earlier Blood-C television series and the upcoming film. Production I.G has been animating both projects. Naoyoshi Shiotani (Tokyo Marble Chocolate, key animator on Blood+ and Blood-C) is directing the film instead of the television version's director Tsutomu Mizushima. Writers Jun'ichi Fujisaku and Nanase Ohkawa (CLAMP), animation character designer/chief animation director Kazuchika Kise, and voice cast members Nana Mizuki (Saya Kisaragi) and Kenji Nojima (Fumito Nanahara) are returning from the television series.

The film will open on June 2. Niconico, the English version of the online video service Nico Nico Douga, streamed the television series outside of Japan as it aired.
