Anime studio CoMix Wave Films — known for its work in your name., 5 Centimeters Per Second, and other Makoto Shinkai films — announced on Tuesday that it is collaborating with Haoliners to release an anthology of three shorts collectively titled Shikioriori (Poem of Seasons Woven Together) this summer. The three shorts in the anthology are titled "Hidamari no Chōshoku" (Sunny Breakfast), "Chiisana Fashion Show" (A Small Fashion Show), and "Shanghai Koi" (Shanghai Love), and all three will be set in three different Chinese cities.
The theme of the three stories are food, clothing, and shelter. Writer and live-action director Jiaoshou Yi Xiaoxing (Surprise) is making his animation directorial debut with "Hidamari no Chōshoku," which is about a youth working in Beijing and a grandmother in his hometown. Yoshitaka Takeuchi, the 3DCG chief in many of Shinkai's films, is directing "Chiisana Fashion Show," which is about sisters living in Guangzhou. Li Haoling (Spiritpact) is directing "Shanghai Koi," which is set in 1990s Shanghai as a homage to 5 Centimeters Per Second. Li is also credited as the overall director of the Shikioriori project.
The anthology will open in Theater Shinjuku, Cine Libre Ikebukuro, and other cinemas this summer.
CoMix Wave Films and Haoliners also opened a website for the anthology.
Update: Li's given name is also transliterated as Haoling. Thanks, Liuwdere
