Hong Kong's film and music news website Tube began streaming the Hōkago Midnighters (After School Midnighters) CG anime film's third trailer. The 117-second video includes English and Chinese subtitles and features the song "Re:myend!" by the Japanese all-female band Negoto.
In the slapstick comedy story, a human anatomical model comes to life at midnight in a science classroom at an elite elementary school. Kouichi Yamadera (Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion) will star as the naked anatomical model Kunstlijk, and Hiromasa Taguchi (Kaasan - Mom's Life) will voice the skeleton specimen Goth. Haruka Tomatsu (anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, Bodacious Space Pirates ), Sakiko Uran (Toriko, Ozma), and Minako Kotobuki (K-ON!, Tiger & Bunny) will play the elementary school children Mako, Miko, and Mutsuko.
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.
