Cencoroll 2 Film's 1st Trailer Reveals Summer Release

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Sequel to 2009 independent film was announced in 2010

Aniplex announced at AnimeJapan on Saturday that Atsuya Uki's Cencoroll 2 film will open in Japanese theaters this summer. The company also unveiled the first trailer and a key visual (seen above). The video features music by supercell, who will score the soundtrack for the film.

The first Cencoroll theatrical anime short's story begins when a giant monster sends a town's citizens into a panic — except for a girl named Yuki and her schoolmate Tetsu. Tetsu happens to have his own strange creature named Cenco as a pet. Another boy named Shū controls the monster threatening the town, and the stage is set for a battle.

Uki directed, wrote, designed, and animated the first Cencoroll project himself, and it had its world premiere at Canada's Fantasia 2009 festival. It also played in Tokyo, Osaka, and New York at the New York Anime Film Festival. The sequel to the film was announced in 2010.
