Full-CG anime feature about anatomical models stars Cowboy Bebop, Evangelion voice actor

Production company Mont Blanc Pictures is streaming an English subtitled trailer for the full-CG anime feature After School Midnighters.

In the slapstick comedy story of After School Midnighters, 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) starred in the film as the naked anatomical model Kunstlijk, and Hiromasa Taguchi (Kaasan - Mom's Life) voiced the skeleton specimen Goth. Hitoshi Takekiyo returned to direct the film after directing the original 2007 CG anime short After School Midnight (Hōkago Midnight).

The feature opened simultaneously in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore in August 2012. The film was released on Blu-ray Disc in January 2013 and included English, Korean, and Chinese subtitles. The producers submitted the film for consideration in the 2013 "Best Animated Feature Film" category of the Academy Awards.
