Anime director Yutaka Yamamoto (Yamakan) announced on the live-streamed program "Anime Gyōkai no Mirai wa Akarui desu ka? Sore tomo..." (Is the Anime Industry's Future Bright? Or is it...) on Saturday that his new original anime film project is slated for 2018 under the title Hakubo (Twilight). He is accepting crowdfunding on the Campfire website.


Yamamoto is planning the anime as the last of his self-described "Tōhoku trilogy" set in Japan's Tōhoku region in the northeast. Hakubo in particular follows youths living in "the now and present" in Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture after the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011. (The previous two Tōhoku projects, blossom and Wake Up, Girls!, were set in the town of Otsuchi, Iwate Prefecture and Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture, respectively.)

Yamamoto said that he first conceived of the project's initial concept two decades ago when he was in college. When he mulled over what would be a good perspective to depict Fukushima, he recalled this idea from his past and set it in Tohoku.

"A way of life that could be anywhere, experienced by a girl who could be anywhere.
A life that could be anywhere.
A love that could be anywhere."

Another anime that Yamaken is involved in. Having seen some works he is involved with, I'm actually kinda interested in. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the anime character designs looks like those from Wake up Girls either. Seems to be a film series project.

Twilight Anime Project


*facepalms self*

I read that as an adaptation of the terrible movie series with vampires that sparkle instead of bursting into flame when they are hit by sunlight and a weak rivalry with werewolves that isn't near what is in the Underworld series.
