Crowd-Funding Anime Chuya-den Unveils 2nd Trailer
posted on by Karen Ressler
An official website for the crowd-funding anime project Chuya-den ~To regain the missing sun~ (Noon & Night Legend ~To regain the missing sun~) opened on Friday with a second promotional video, introducing the main character Shu (Yu Kobayashi).
Yoshiyuki Kaneko (no relation to the voice actor of the same name)- also known as YOSHIKO- is helming the project, which is currently seeking crowd-funding. The overall goal of the project is to create four 24~30 minute original anime episodes. The first goal of the project is to attempt to complete the first episode.
The anime is being voluntarily produced by the younger staff at animation studio Wao World, the same studio that produced last year's Spochan Taiketsu! ~Yōkai Daikessen~ film. Both this film and the upcoming project focus on chanbara ("spochan"), which is a Japanese martial art that uses padded weapons.
The cast includes:
Yu Kobayashi as Shu
Yui Horie as Yuna
Ayumi Fujimura as Kenta
Misato Fukuen as Tsuchi-gumo
Motomu Kiyokawa as Nurarihyon
Nobuyuki Hiyama as Kurama-Tengu
Norio Wakamoto as Sanmoto-Gorozaemon
The official Facebook page for the project describes the story of the anime:
Further updates on the project will be added in English and Japanese on the project's Facebook page.
