Studio Colorido Unveils Typhoon Noruda Anime Film
posted on by Karen Ressler
Studio Colorido announced during the broadcast of the anime Punch Line on Friday that it is animating a new feature-length film titled Taifū no Noruda (Typhoon Noruda). The film will open in theaters in Japan for a three week limited engagement beginning on June 5.
Former Ghibli animator Yōjirō Arai is making his directorial debut on the film, though he has served as animation director on short anime for Studio Colorido. Hiroyasu Ishida, who previously directed award-winning shorts such as "Fumiko's Confession" and "rain town," is designing the characters and serving as animation director. Masashi Hamauzu (Good Luck Girl!) is composing the music.
The film takes place on a certain isolated island, at a certain middle school, on the eve of the culture festival. A boy quits baseball after playing his whole life, and has a fight with his best friend. Then they suddenly meet a mysterious, red-eyed girl named Noruda, and a huge typhoon hits the middle school.
Studio Colorido began streaming the 15-second teaser.
