Recommended Posts

0rZtfbZ.jpgStreaming service Hulu and Hakuhodo's in-house animation studio Craftar are partnering to produce an original two-part "smart CG animation" project titled Soutai Sekai (The Relative Worlds). The first part will premiere via streaming on Hulu on April 28, and the second part will premiere on May 5.

 

The anime's official website features the tagline, "The despair of my world was the hope of the other world." The story is set in Japan in 2020. The story centers on Shin Hazama, and a version of himself who led a different life in another Japan appears. A crack opens in the everyday life that he thought was impossible to change. Boys and girls have to decide what to think and choose when the world changes completely. The battle with another world and another self begins.

 

Craftar is credited with the original work and planning for the anime. Yūhei Sakuragi (The Case of Hana & Alice CGI director) is debuting as director at Crafter and writing the script. The artist PALOW. is designing the characters, and Rui Tomono is providing the concept art. Hidehiro Kawai (live-action television series Quartet) is composing the music. Craftar and Lucky Pictures are collaborating on CGI production.

 

Sakuragi previously worked with Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki on the planned "Kemushi no Boro" (Boro the Caterpillar) CG short for the Ghibli Museum. He also served as CG director for Japan Animator Expo's 32nd short "Neon Genesis IMPACTS," which debuted in 2015. Lucky Pictures worked with Sakuragi on the short.

 

Craftar previously collaborated with Marza Animation Planet to produce a 13-minute short adaptation of Genki Kawamura's Moom picture book. Hulu Japan and California-based studio Tonko House are also planning a series of shorts titled "Dam Keeper no Nakama-tachi."

this looks neat do we have any idea how long it will go for ?

It says right in the first paragraph.

 

"an original two-part "smart CG animation" project titled Soutai Sekai (The Relative Worlds). The first part will premiere via streaming on Hulu on April 28, and the second part will premiere on May 5. "

 

So it's two parts only, and the first will be out April 28th and the last part will be out May 5th.
