Blood-C: The Last Dark Film's 3rd Intro Video Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
Twins Nono & Nene introduce the Furukimono foes in TV series & June film sequel

The film distributor Shochiku began streaming the third introductory video to the Blood-C: The Last Dark film on Sunday. In the 107-second "No-ne-no-ne Theater" video, the identical twins Nono & Nene Motoe — in super-deformed form — introduce Fukurimono, the creatures from ancient times who devour humans. The anime film is set in Tokyo one year after the Blood-C television series, and Saya returns as the schoolgirl who hunts and feeds on the Furukimono.

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 in theaters across Japan 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.
