posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Azuma Tani (Thermae Romae, Waka Okami wa Shōgakusei!) is directing the "Soundback: Sō no Ishi" anime that will appear in the film. Manga creator and illustrator Eisaku Kubonouchi (Carole & Tuesday) is designing the characters. Takayuki Yanase (Mobile Suit Gundam 00) is the mechanical designer. A fake trailer for the anime is available below.
Similarly, Takashi Otsuka (One Piece Stampede, Glitter Force) is directing the "Unmei Sensen Liddell Light" anime that will appear in the film. Takahiro Kishida (Durarara!!, Baccano!) is designing the characters. A fake trailer for the anime is available below.
Kōhei Yoshino is directing the overall live-action film, and Yōsuke Masaike is writing the script. Toei Tokyo Film Studio is filming the work, and Toei will distribute the film. The film will stars Riho Yoshioka, Tomoya Nakamura, Tasuku Emoto, and Machiko Ono.
Japanese animation—the globally acclaimed, family-friendly theatrical features are the exception rather than the rule for a TV-oriented industry that has been pushed into late-night slots in an era of fragmented audiences. When only three titles among fifty might turn a profit, topping the charts is hardly an overambitious aim.
Yet as three women, a producer, a director, and an animator, survive in a business infamous for its murderous schedules, demoralizing compromises, and incorrigible men, moments of uplift emerge against all odds—and how. More than just a window into an entertainment niche, here's a kickass ode to work.
