(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 14:43 May 1, 2009..)
Kamikaze Douga is a video production known for animated sequences in PSP's "Final Fantasy Tactics", "Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter" and image video of "Dragon Quest IX Hoshizora no Moribito" shown on Tokyo Game Show 2007.
In addition to video games, they are famous for movie adaption of Otsuichi's "Hidamari no Uta" or "AXEBUSTERS", the movie for men's cosmetic company. And finally, their original movies "Ama-Natsu" and "The Last Piece" are now going to be sold on iTunes store.
Here's some beautiful cuts and a trailer. Read on for detail.
"Amanatsu" focused on Amane, a girl who is mindful of her death, and Amanatsu, a perpetual robot. "A Girl and a robot" is a frequently-seen motif, but Kamikaze Douga daringly challenged the material.
Classmates' bulying and parents' divorce made the girl uncertain of her identity and let her search for "World's End", her last place.
The only being which accepted her is the soundless robot, always with her.
At Tokyo International Anime Fair 2009, they aired 16-minutes long pilot movie. In "Amanatsu", Kamikaze Douga tried unique expressions and rendition techniques while using anime-typical characters and settings.
iTunes store is now distributing collaboration music video of Amanatsu and River's edge for 300 yen(About 3 USD). There also is a 28-sec long preview. You need iTunes player to see the video.
