posted on by Karen Ressler
The official YouTube for Olympusat, Inc.'s television channel TOKU began streaming an English-dubbed trailer for the After School Midnighters full-CG anime film on Friday. The trailer states that the film is "now showing," but does not provide an air date.
Toku describes the story:
Mako, Miko, and Mutsuko are three young girls visiting St. Claire Elementary, a school filled with strange legends. The girls have an encounter with Kunstrijk, a human body anatomy model, and Goth, a skeleton model. Seeking revenge for being vandalized by the girls, Kunstrijk invites them to the school´s midnight party in order to scare them.
Kouichi Yamadera (Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion) starred in the film as the naked anatomical model Kunstlijk, and Hiromasa Taguchi (Kaasan - Mom's Life) voiced the skeleton specimen Goth. Hitoshi Takekiyo returned to direct the film after directing the original 2007 CG anime short After School Midnight (Hōkago Midnight).
The feature opened simultaneously in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore in August 2012. The film was released on Blu-ray Disc in January 2013 and included English, Korean, and Chinese subtitles. The producers submitted the film for consideration in the 2013 "Best Animated Feature Film" category of the Academy Awards.
