The first anime short of the second season will be Maeda's "Kanón" from Gankutsuou director Maeda. Hibiki Yoshizaki serves as technical director and Tatsuya Kushida (Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo) serves as art director. The Animator Expo website will stream "Kanón" this March.

Moyoco Anno crowdfunded Ochibisan, a stop-motion feature based on her The Diary of Ochibi-san (Ochibi-san) manga.

The first season of shorts included:

Anno himself is serving as executive producer of the entire project 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. The shorts mostly feature the voice talent of Ranma ½ and Cowboy Bebop co-stars Kouichi Yamadera and Megumi Hayashibara .
