Kiyotaka Oshiyama's Studio Durian revealed a trailer for its "Shishigari" (Lion Hunter) anime short on Thursday. Oshiyama (Flip Flappers) is directing the anime, and is also credited for the story concept, screenplay, and as animator for the short. Megumi Han plays the "Boy" main character.
Studio Durian describes the short:
Deep in the northern mountains, there are people who have been living with the blessings of the mountains. A boy, who is coming of age, journeys into the mountains for his first hunt. He must find the "Kuroshishi." The mountain is a world where life and death are divided by a paper-thin line. Sometimes, nature will show its fangs...
Other staff members include background artist Kevin Aymeric (Ping Pong), compositor and editor Yoichi Senzui (The Wind Rises, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya), composer Kenji Kawai (Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell, Gundam 00), sound director Kazuhiro Wakabayashi (Princess Mononoke, Jin-Roh - The Wolf Brigade), and Kaori Yamada (Mitsuboshi Colors, Hanebad!) for sound effects.
