Original anime aired last year

Anime creator Kazuya Sasahara (Cat Shit One: The Animated Series) began streaming a second trailer for his CG-animated reboot of Dai - Shogun - Great Revolution on Tuesday. Sasahara also announced that he is planning to crowdfund the project via Kickstarter beginning in January.

ILCA has is handling the 3D animation for the project. The video features music produced by Ray Sato with Shiori Sasaki on vocals, Yoshiyuki Shichiku on bamboo flute, and Takumichi Ishibashi on shamisen. Studio GOONEYS is supporting the project.

Crunchyroll streamed the original television anime as it aired in Japan last year, and Sentai Filmworks will release the series on Blu-ray and DVD in North America in January.

Sentai Filmworks describes the story:

In the land of the rising sun the horizon is darkened by a fleet of black ships from foreign soil . Just when it seems that all hope is lost ancient mecha of unknown origins appear, pushing back the black ships and forever altering the course of history. Thus, the timeline splits and a new Japan is born, one free of modernization and foreign influence. In this country secluded from the world, an energetic young man known as Keiichiro Tokugawa faces off with his greatest enemy- boredom. Keiichiro yearns to leave behind his life at the family bathhouse and prove himself as a real man once and for all. But can a virgin who breaks out in hives at the faintest touch of a woman really become a hero for his nation? Especially when he's surrounded by beautiful women at every turn, from his family's striking shinobi servant, Kiriko, to the feisty fugitive half-fox, Chiharu. Keiichiro's dream of a life of action and adventure is about to be fulfilled- in a very big way!

Update: Sasahara contacted ANN to confirm that while Studio GOONEYS supports Sasahara and the reboot project, ILCA is handling the project's animation.
