The anime studio ufotable has announced on Friday that it is participating in two projects to mark the 10th anniversary of the ANIMATE mascot character Anime Tenchou, including the production of the “Anime Tenchou x Touhou Project” animation project.
The ANIMATE character goods store chain is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Anime Tenchou mascot character with 10 projects. Project 01 is new commercial footage called “Anime Tenchou Gekijō-ban”, which ufotable will produce. Project 03 is “Anime Tenchou Collabo 10-ban Shōbu Round 1”, in which ufotable is producing an animation project that combines Anime Tenchou and the dōjin game franchise Touhou Project.
Both projects will appear at the ANIMATE Ichioshi Bishōjo Matsuri event which will take place in Tokyo on November 20. Other projects to be shown at the event include IS (Infinite Stratos), Oniichan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne—!!, Steins;Gate, and OVA ToHeart2 adnext.
There will be a special version of the original Anime Tenchou theme song that will accompany the new commercial footage. Tomokazu Seki is singing as the Anime Tenchou Meito Anizawa character, and original creator Kazuhiko Shimamoto is rewriting the lyrics.
Touhou Project is gonna get an animation by ufotable, the same awsm studio that did Kara no Kyoukai? This is going to be great, and will be a nice change from the doujin anime. Hopefully it contains the outstanding ZUN soundtracks too!
No, I have not been dead. I know there hasn’t been much updates this my blog recently, and I confess to being addicted to Recettear, the mindless item-selling and dungeon-raiding game. On the other hand, I have also been consuming a lot more light novels in the past week than I probably did in the 2~3 weeks before then. A few random words on some of the books I have read.
