Blood-C: The Last Dark Film's 4th Intro Video Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
Twins Nono & Nene introduce Sanbara Academy from TV series & June film sequel

The film distributor Shochiku began streaming the fourth introductory video to the Blood-C: The Last Dark film on Wednesday. In the 108-second "No-ne-no-ne Theater" video, the identical twins Nono & Nene Motoe — in super-deformed form — introduce Sanbara Academy, the private school that is the backdrop of the anime. 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 monsters.

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.
