VIDEO: "The Tibetan Dog" Anime Film Trailer

Madhouse/Chinese Government Opens in Japan on January 7

Japan's Madhouse anime studio announced that their co-production with the Chinese government, The Tibetan Dog, will open in Japanese theaters for the new year, on January 7, 2012. Trailers have been prepared for its festival screenings, but a new top notch preview has been posted ahead of the wide release.

 

 

Child actor Tatsuomi Hamada (the live action adaptations of The Wallflower and Kaibutsu-kun) will voice the lead in an adaptation of the best-selling Chinese novel about a half-Tibetan boy who travels to join his father on the Tibetan plains after the death of his mother.

 

Award-winning manga author Naoki Urasawa (20th Century Boys) provided character designs for the movie, which is directed by Masayuki Kojima and adapted by Shigeru Fujita, both of whom worked on Madhouse's adaptation of Urasawa's ethics thriller Monster.
