posted on by Egan Loo
Japan Animator Expo, the project of weekly anime shorts from Hideaki Anno's studio Khara and the media company Dwango, began streaming the full third short titled "ME!ME!ME!" on Friday. The music video features the musician Teddyloid (Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt) and rapper daoko.
The official website describes the story: "You are attacked and ravished by many girls. Animation music video by TeddyLoid x daoko x Studio khara."
Like the first two shorts, the third short features the voice talent of Ranma 1/2 and Cowboy Bebop co-stars Kouichi Yamadera and Megumi Hayashibara, and Dan Kanemitsu translated the short on behalf of Khara.
The rest of the staff includes:
Director: Hibiki Yoshizaki
Animation Production: Studio Khara
Planning, Original Work, Storyboard, Technical Director: Hibiki Yoshizaki
Music: "ME!ME!ME! feat.daoko" by TeddyLoid
Character Design, Animation Director: Shuichi Iseki

Anno himself is serving as executive producer of the initiative with Dwango President Nobuo Kawakami, and he also designed the image character mascot "(Tor)-kun." Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki created the title logo, and fellow Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki colored it.
One new short will stream every week for a planned total of 30 shorts, ranging from original projects and spinoffs to promotional videos and music videos. Each episode will be streamed for free via a dedicated iOS/Android app and on the web. There are no plans for a commercial release at this stage.
