News Gravion's Obari Helms Ziguru Hazeru Robot Toys' Anime Shorts
posted on 2013-04-05 06:10 EDT by Sarah Nelkin
The anime is based on MegaHouse's line of Ziguru Hazeru (literally, "Jiggle and Pop Out") mecha toys that allow people to remove parts from the joints and add different parts in their place. In addition, if one combines together Hazeru Gokuu, Hazeru Sagojo, and Hazeru Hakkai, the resulting mecha will be Hazeru Seioh, allowing for users to combine their toys together.
MegaHouse also revealed the staff for the project:
- Original Work: MegaHouse
- Director: Masami Obari
- Mechanic Design/Mechanic Director: Masahiro Yamane
- Character Design: Tsukasa Kotobuki
- Director of Photography: Kozue Iwasaki
- Art Director Seiki Tamura
- CG: Polygon Pictures
Obari is known for his work as director on the Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector and Gravion anime series, while Yamane contributed to mechanical designs for Accel World and Magic Knight Rayearth. Tamura also did the art direction for The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya and Lucky Star.
The short anime will begin airing on the Animax channel on Saturday.
