60-second trailer for followup of Hitoshi Takekiyo's 2007 comedy short posted

The official website for the Hōkago Midnighters (After School Midnighters) CG anime film began streaming a new trailer video this week. The film's official Facebook page posted two teaser videos earlier this month, while its first trailer was posted in March. In the slapstick comedy story, a human anatomical model comes to life at midnight in a science classroom at an elite elementary school.

Hitoshi Takekiyo directed the original 2007 CG anime short After School Midnight (Hōkago Midnight) that was well-received in Japan and in international film festivals. He is returning to direct the remake at the studio Koo-Ki. Yōichi Komori (Umizaru manga collaborator) is writing the new film.

The Japanese film distributor T-Joy will release Hōkago Midnighters in Japan this summer. The entire original short is available from the AnimeTunes Vol. 1 app for iPhone and iPad devices.
